English (Translate this text in English): SE shore. Take Kalanianaole Hwy. east, past Hanauma Bay. Follow what I think is arguably the most beautiful drive in the world, twisting around until you park at the Halona Blow Hole parking area, a large turn-out just before you reach Sandy Beach. After that, it's a short hike down a path that's just south of the parking area into Cockroach Cove/From Here to Eternity Beach.
Boat access possible but beach is easiest.

 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): This is the beach where Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr got hot and heavy, making out in a wicked beach break in the movie "From Here to Eternity". (I think I would've found the waves a little distracting. Seriously, they're getting their backsides handed to them big time and I doubt they enjoyed filming that scene at all.) It's also called Cockroach Cove by more recent generations, not sure why.
It's a very nice dive site. Use caution for the current and waves which can be treacherous. Only go when it's very docile. Rocks may be slippery as well.
After swimming out shallow cove, turn a little north and find the big crack that leads into the actual blow hole. If there's any waves at all, stay away from blow hole. Seriously, people have died in there (usually by getting sucked in from above, though) and you don't want to get stuck inside. Just use your head. If wave action is okay, it's pretty cool dropping down into this itty-bitty canyon.
Pretty good chance to see green sea turtles, spotted eagle rays, octopus and maybe a white-tip shark.

Rocks may be "sleepy" as well? - Is the site really that boring? - Just Kidding
