Waves pound into the layered shoreline known as the China Wall and high surf causes tremors in the ground. Jumping off the shore is not recommended. High cliffs above the Spitting Cave are dangerous. An extremely scenic spot. The area known as the China Wall and Spitting Cave is located east of Honolulu on Oaha and has been used many times for filming TV shows like LOST, The Event and Off the Map. The area is a geological masterpiece with multiple slick rock layers caused by surf erosion. The China Wall access from Koko Kai Beach Park allows access to a shelf where waves slide past with great force - watch out for rogue waves on this lower side of the China Wall. The Spitting Cave is east of Koko Kai and accessed via a short path near the end of Hanapepe Place. It is located just below a high cliff where waves crash underneath and shoot into the cave which ejects the water like a reverse blowhole. You get a great view from the rock head to the west of the high cliff. Very cool! Be careful, the cliffs are dangerous. Just past the cave are ladders where the "Others" frequented during many LOST seasons. This short jaunt gives you a great taste of raw Hawaii and the power of its surf.

We got there early around 730am before it got crowded by tour buses. It was super pretty and easy to climb down for a better view.
