Behind the Danger Falling Rocks sign is one that says Toilet Bowl Area Closed. During my middle school years, I was a volunteer junior counselor for the Central YMCA next to the Ala Wai Stream between the new Ala Moana Center and Waikiki. One summer, the YMCA held their daily summer program at Hanauma Bay. We would hand carry those heavy ice chests up and down the road 5 days a week and sometimes take the trail on this side of the bay to the Toilet Bowl where kids were seen jumping in to be flushed back up again. A few drownings would lead the spot to be eventually closed. Each year, Florida International University professor Stephen P. Leatherman (a.k.a. "Dr. Beach") compiles a list of the best beaches in America based on 50 criteria, including sand color and softness, wind speeds, access, and competition for free use. Topping the 2016 list is the Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, located on the island of Oahu in Hawaii.
