Life's a beach and then you die? Lumahai Beach; Kauai, Hawaii

Lumaha'i Beach is located on Kauai’s northern shore, but do not let the picturesque views fool you. It is a beach best viewed from a distance rather than swimming. The beach has no protective reef, making the coast totally exposed to the open ocean. Nicknamed "Luma-die" by the locals, the slippery rock ledges, powerful waves, strong undertow and currents make this one of Kauai’s most dangerous beaches. I played it safe and went to the beach with my camera and left the swimming trunks behind.

Was there every a time you felt endangered while photographing?

Happy Travels!
