Dangerous Places in Hawaii Disclaimer 1: This list is not all inclusive. Also, you can be injured or killed in even the “safest” of spots. Again, nature is unpredictable. Do not turn your back on the ocean or forget where you’re at any time. Disclaimer 2: I am not saying to avoid these places at all cost. It would benefit you (and keep you safe and alive) to heed warnings, do research and if there is ever any doubt or you feel unfomfortable, in danger or beyond your capability IN ANY WAY, to stop immediately, get out of the water, turn around on the hike and/or call for help. Each beach in Hawaii has posted signs that warn people of high surf, strong break, riptides, currents and the lack or presence of lifeguards, as well as your own physical capabilities/limitations. Oahu Beaches ANY North Shore Beach during the “winter months”. This is great surfing weather and people love doing it. However, not everyone can surf and you can get enveloped and drowned quickly. Sandy Beach is known as a great body surfing spot. The shore break can crush you though and hit hurt you pretty badly. The Toilet Bowl at Hanauma Bay (sucks you In and shoots you out) Spitting Caves, east of Koko Kai (again, sucks you in and spits you out) Oahu-Hanauma-toilet-bowl-dangerous Beautiful but dangerous Kauai Beaches Lumaha’i Beach (nicknamed Luma-die) rogue waves and rip currents. Hanakapi’ai Beach, rogue waves and rip currents. Polihale Beach, same here. Stay in waist deep water and don’t get cute with the surf and break. Maui Beaches Makena Beach: Violent shore breaks on hard sand in shallow water. D.T. Fleming Beach: Ditto’ Big Island Beaches Hapuna Beach: Better for sunbathing than having fun in the water. Magic Sands: Surf breaks, rip currents and the unknown ocean. Catch some rays, instead. Disclaimer 3: There are literally dozens of dangerous water and beach spots on each island. Like we said in Disclaimer 1, this list is not all inclusive. However, these are the ones that seem to be the most search for on the internet, talked about in forums and where more than one person has died or being seriously injured.
