|About these ratings|
Do you remember when Nurse Nellie tried to wash that man right out of her hair in the 1958 film classic South Pacific? Now's your chance to visit the spot where actress Mitzi Gaynor gave it her best shot. Just don't try it yourself: The water at Lumahai Beach is notoriously rough. Still, the setting at Lumahai Beach is the Hawaii you've seen on postcards. As long as you're careful, a visit to Lumahai is more than worth it. Recent guests agree—especially those looking for a little privacy to sunbathe, picnic, or enjoy one of Kauai's romantic sunsets.
You'll find Lumahai off of Highway 560, just west of Hanalei Bay on Kauai's north shore. Anticipate a steep path down to the beach.
