Detailed Description

Highway 560, North Shore, Kauai

This beach was made famous by the movie South Pacific where Mitzi Gaynor "washed that man right out of her hair"! Lava rocks scattered along the mouth of the beach create a waterfall effects as the surf breaks and recedes over the rugged terrain. The beach itself is a long, wide crescent of sandy, picture-postcard-perfect. The swimming, however, is another story. Strong currents, fierce waves, and unbelievable backwash make the water here unsafe almost all the time. A few excellent Hawaiian surfers may be seen trying the luck on the left side of the beach. The Lumahai' Stream, on the left, is sometimes cut off from the ocean during the summer due to large deposits of sand. In this case, cooling off in the fresh water of the stream is an option. A rock outcropping separates Lumaha'i from Kahalahala Beach, a mere naming technicality. The surf conditions are just as dangerous here.
