Now, where is that beach in the Caribbean where you send old mentors to have umbrella-adorned drinks while watching the waves roll in - silently pondering how far badly the linear regime of the wave equation is broken?

Not exactly what you are looking for, as it is much closer (Zadar, Croatia) and the wave was just reflected, but it is best I can think of.
