Watch Your Step
The trail to this beach can be muddy when went and slippery. It is steep and good footwear is helpful.
The width of Lumahai Beach is said to vary as much as 360 feet with the seasonal movements of the sand from one end to the other. With steep shores, comes the danger of high surf, dangerous shore break and strong currents. There is protective reef so the ocean drops off very quickly. The nearby Lumahai River may rise drastically causing flash floods. This in combinations with the danger of rough waves which are most common during high surf (typically in the winter) makes even wading along the shore inadvisable. You may see body boarders or surfers enjoying this beach but when the surf is becomes even slightly rough, even the experts stay out of the water. Beware of rip tides and unseen currents.
Beware of standing on rocks at this beach. Large waves have been known to crush photographers and visitors taking photos unaware of the potential for injury.
