The Lumaha?i Beach became popular through the movie South Pacific. You can find numerous lava rocks scattered on the mouth of the beach which create effects of waterfall as it faces all the breaks of the surf waves and recedes right over the terrains that are rugged. The beach is defined with its wide and long crescent that is picture perfect for any postcard.
Even if it seems to be a refreshing beach to swim in based on its description, you would be surprised that swimming is not encouraged in the attraction due to its very strong currents and high waves. In fact, only the expert Hawaiian surfers are the ones that can truly endure the strong waves as they surf.
