About the From Here to Eternity Beach (Halona Cove): Near Halona Blowhole
East of Diamond Head Waikiki HI

Halona Blowhole is a rock formation and a blowhole on the island of Oahu, Hawaii off of Hanauma Bay overlooking the Pacific Ocean. On windy days when the tide is high, the ocean breeze sends the waves rolling on to the shore where the rock formation then shoots sea spray high into the air through the cave acting like a geyser. It is not always at its best every day though. The blowhole is most active when the tide is high and the winds are strong.[1] This is a big tourist spot in Hawaii. People come from all over to enjoy the beautiful scenery, the beach at the cove, and in the winter it is the spot to go to see the humpback whale as they take their journey leaving the North Pacific[2] or the Honu (The Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles) swimming about.[3]

Halona Cove is the small pit of sand just to the left of Halona Blowhole[9] where tourists and locals can also enjoy a small beach while visiting the blowhole attraction and it is great for swimming when the surf is very calm.[10] Access to the beach is very difficult and is warned not to swim while the surf is rough considering there are no lifeguards on duty here.[11] At this particular location is where the kiss of Deborah Kerr and Burt Lancaster took place in the film From Here to Eternity.[12] Not only did these two actors share a kiss in 1953, but also Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler too shared a romantic first kiss in the movie 50 First Dates.[13]"
