  • Lumahai Beach is a beautiful crescent shaped beach of golden sand. It is not heavily visited so it usually makes for a peaceful visit. There is a rocky outcropping that is fun for jumping into the wat...  more »

  • Beautiful beach that feels like you have your own little slice of heaven all to yourself. Rarely are there more than a small handful of people around. Perhaps because it's near of the highway, perhaps because the weather is a bit unpredictable here. Sand is a little bit coarser than other beaches, but that's being very picky. On a nice day, this is what it feels like to truly get away from it all.
  • Kaui is the smallest Hawaii island, quaint and beautiful. Lumahai Beach is huge, yet so few people and complete with green sand. It is truly an escape to nature.
  • There is a cool rope swing into the fresh water stream at the west end of the beach close to where you park. Love how the stream enters the ocean and the waves from the ocean hit the rocks and go into the stream. Huge, beautiful beach but the waters look like they might be dangerous at times.
  • Moderately secluded, and not the easiest to get to, but worth the trip. Come early to make sure you have parking. Big waves, but also a calmer spot on the east side that has a natural pool up on the rocks. Loved this beach, and getting ruined by the waves on a boogie board.
  • a nice beach if you like few people around. no life guide.
