Just a few miles west of Hanalei Bay, at its western tip, is Lumahai Beach. Parking is in a dirt lot, and there are no facilities. The sand near the water is usually steep because of persistently strong surf. This creates extremely dangerous shore-break conditions.

Swimming at Lumahai Beach is not recommended unless you are very experienced. It is not favorable for snorkeling as the under-water environment is all sand. It is, however, great spot for experienced surfers and body-boarders during the winter months. Lumahai Beach deserves a visit because of its wide, white sandy beach, and its delightful scenery. With some rocky outcroppings to the east, it gushes with heavenly views when waves created by the beauty, and power, of Mother Nature come crashing in.

On the west end, Lumahai stream flows into the ocean, making it an alluring spot for frolicking in cool, fresh water. Remember that you are not the only one who enjoys frolicking in these streams, so do not drink the water as it may be contaminated with leptospirosis.

"The water here is too rough and not really good for snorkeling or even swimming"
Reviewed April 9, 2014
The water here is too rough and not really good for snorkeling or even swimming but we love taking walks on this beach when we’re tired of the crowds at Hanalei. For a beach that’s so close to the road it was really not crowded. There’s a nice shady place to park your car. There is stream on the left side of the beach that was fun to walk around in and cool off. The sand goes for miles at this beach and if you walk to the east end of the beach the scenery is beautiful. When the waves are big they really pound the shore and it is an amazing sight to witness the true power of the ocean.
