Halona Beach Cove, or Eternity Beach as it’s better known, is located just east of Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.
Halona Cove Beach is easy to access from the Halona Blowhole lookout parking lot. You can see the path start from the side, and it only takes two minutes to get to the beach.
The waves in this area can be especially powerful, so be careful exploring. At a minimum you will want to make sure you have shoes on when you walk across the lava rock to get there.
So long as it is safe, this mini beach is awesome. We went later in the afternoon and shockingly had it to ourselves, though there were a few people looking down from the lookout.
Some people will snorkel here, but when I was there the waves were too violent for me to feel comfortable getting in the water.
