Anahola Beach Park, Anahola

3.6
#20 of 26 in Beaches in Kauai
Anahola Beach Park holds a special place in the hearts of locals for its white sand and calm, safe swimming areas protected by a coral reef. The mouth of the Anahola River, however, is less ideal for bathing and requires caution due to the strong currents. Instead, this active spot remains popular with body boarders and surfers. Extend your stay by setting up a tent at the campground, which gets crowded in high season. Use our Anahola online trip itinerary planner to add Anahola Beach Park and other attractions to your Anahola vacation plans.
