Jump Rock is approximately 25 feet high at the highest jumping spot and can bring hours of jumping and viewing entertainment. The top of the rock is filled with young high school kids and adolescents there to jump and socialize. I had not done this jump in over 10 years and remember spending hours here in the summer amongst the crowd of people jumping multiple times.
Since its been so long since I had jumped I thought it would be fun to try it once again. My sister Marissa and I climbed up the rock that afternoon to give it a try. From the beach the jump looks pretty small, but once at the top, looking down, with eyes staring at you I must admit I got a few butterflies in my tummy. Nevertheless, we both jumped and lived to tell the tale! If you are ever in Waimea Bay during the flat summer months, a quick jump off Jump Rock will bring you back to your carefree childhood days.

1980 locals warned me not to dive from that height! I had dove once from where they were diving & saw a tunnel under the rock! I decided against the locals plaeading to do the dive. All gd. i nailed it, i did go into the sand almost to my elbows! Then swam into the tunnel there was a light i exited the other side of the rock, climbed ot the top. They thought i’d drowned all were in panic! I let out a wail, i am alive! Percival Coondalini @ yo service! Blessings all
