Secluded spot offers gorgeous view
It's worth the 15-minute trek from my beat-up ride to enjoy the same view as the million-dollar homes dotted along the Portlock coast known as China Walls. On any given day there's a YouTube moment, no matter what the gods may offer, whether a green-flash sunset, whales breaching or surfers skimming the jagged coastline on temperamental waves. OK, so I'm a lawn chair athlete, but I share in the adrenaline rush of those who plunge from the Walls' steep cliffs into a thrashing ocean, gasping as they take that leap, crossing my fingers that they make it back OK. Even without such drama, located at Hanapepe Place, just beyond what's formally known as Koko Kai Mini Beach Park, it's a peaceful pau hana spot with one's beverage of choice dressed in a brown paper bag and some brie or ahi shoyu poke, if that makes for a better pairing. Just make sure: no loud music and clean up after yourself. Gotta be pono with the neighborhood. — Ruby Mata-Viti Login for more...
