Lumahai Beach reviews
Be extremely careful of the rips and waves breaking over the rock ledge here... locals call this place "Luma-die" because of how many people have drowned or been injured by waves and swept out. more »
This is a great beach but you have to go down the trail to get here. When we were here the surf was up and it would not be safe to get into the water. There is parking on the side of the road in... more »
most beautiful bech I have ever been to
Ages ago I saw scenes of a gorgeous Beach featured in the 1958 movie, South Pacific. Years later on my 1st visit to Kauai we talked with locals and got the name and directions. As we approached the Eastern end of this mile long Beach there were cars parked along the edge of the road in the dirt and, although there was no signage, and you could not see the shoreline for the trees, we felt this was the place. 25 annual visits later we still follow the muddy dirt trail that meanders down a steep hill side and only when you emerge from the overhanging branches do you get your first eye popping glimpse of Lumahai. There is no drinking water, no life guards or 1st aid, no restrooms; just an incredible stretch of seemingly untouched, pristine, sun-drenched sand, rock, and water that is truly spectacular. As beautiful and inviting as it is, please be aware that many people here,have fallen victim to the powerful waves and strong undertows, especially in winter months. Whoever the authority is, that chose not to "improve" the East end of this national treasure, a grateful Mahalo to you!
