Oahu scenic drive
Here is an affordable way to explore some of the most scenic locations on Oahu – rent a car and drive along the island’s shore. Along the way you'll see great beaches and lookout points. Here are some photos we took this weekend. If you prefer public transportation to get around, you can take TheBus (Oahu's public bus) for $2.50. There are many routes that go around the island and to many popular island attractions and beaches.

Kuilei Cliffs








Kahala




Oahu's South Shore










Sandy Beach




Halona Beach








Kaupo Beach








Waimanalo Beach




Bayview Beach




Turtle Bay Beach




Circle Island Bus Route 55

I guess you realize Halono Beach is the one where the famous kissing on the beach scene in From Here To Eternity was filmed? Gorgeous Beach still to this day!
We climbed the wall just past the sign that said not to and also discovered a crazy tiny hole pass between a huge rock that we braved and found a quiet, peaceful valley on the other side.

This beach is really gorgeous! There is another great lookout point near the beach, called Lanai Lookout. From there in a clear day you can see the island of Lanai. It is also a great spot to look at the crashing waves. Here are two photos I took this week.

Oh! That first pic is GORGEOUS!!
Dare I wonder why they place the Do Not signs when they don't enforce them? When we climbed over the eternity beach wall, there were two HP units standing right there and everything.

RE: Oahu scenic drive
Maybe they don't enforce them because if someone is injured, at least this person cannot sue the state because the state can then say there were signs there. It has happened quite a few times where tourists got injured on trails, near waterfalls, etc. and then sued the state because there weren't signs. So I guess the signs are there, but if people want to explore the cliff's edge they are free to do that at their own risk.
