Cliff Jump at China Walls

Kalanianaole Highway

Amazing local beach. Can easily jump in and jump out of the crystal clear water. Awesome surfing for bodyboarding. Cliff jumping!

I was told about this spot by a friend who lived there for a little, and it turned out to be amazing. The waves break and crash right against the wall where you can catch a wave or just jump right in. No long beach to walk on, few people, and amazing blue water.

Head towards Koko Kai Mini Beach Park.

The spot is right next to a residential area, actually next to Dog the Bounty Hunter's house (haha, for real though). You’ll want to park just outside of this cul-de-sac. At the end of the cul-de-sac you will see a rock path that takes you out to China Wall.

Sit on the cliffs, enjoy the view, and take a swim!

When I'm Doubt Don't Go Out

Be very careful here! I have lived in Oahu 3 years now and have seen many people get messed up here. Make sure to only jump when the swell is down. It's a very fun jumping spot but getting out can be difficult. Try to time your get out with the waves!

Amazing sunset!

If you are not interested in jumping, do not fear, China Walls is still well worth the visit!! I recommend bringing a snack, a couple beverages, a significant other, and going around sunset... you won't be disappointed!
