Legend of Hanauma Bay 2 men were in love with the most beautiful maiden in Hawai‘i, Keohinani. To decide which man she would marry, an arm wrestling contest was held. At nightfall still no winner was declared. Keohinani loved both men and it pained her to see their suffering. To end the pain she called asked the gods to transform her into a hill so the suffering would end. Instantly, she was transformed into part of the crater, today called "fair mountain.” Her father was pleased by her humble act of kindness and transformed himself into the crater rim above her that encircles Hanauma Bay. These two inter-twined ridges remind us today of the locked arms and the sport of arm wrestling that gave rise to the crater rims of Hanauma Bay. Menu
