  • Easy to get to, plenty of parking. Not crowded. Good snorkeling although not as good as Tunnels Beach  more »
  • The beach is not very large but very long. Easy access. We can go very far in the water while keeping foot. Not a lot of fish when we were there but maybe we were not in the right place. On the other hand we could swim with several turtles was great

  • Relatively safe beach to snorkel as the reef is very far out. The problem is the best snorkeling is probably pretty far out too. I don't know, as I stayed kind of close to shore. I found the best fish just right of the stream. In addition to fish (beautiful angel fish) saw a bat ray and a sea snake. Almost no live coral. Nice to have a shower on the beach. Easy access. Lots of parking.
  • Such a beautiful beach, it's flat and shallow like a lake for about 80 feet out. Great place to snorkel for beginners since you don't have waves to contend with but we did not see that much sea life while snorkeling. The water and beach it so beautiful though and the trees on shore provide shade or you can choose to be in the sun. All n all a beautiful beach.
  • Great place for camping (permit is necessary), picnic, swimming, snorkeling or just relaxing. Ocean is clean & calm, and there are many crabs and fish. I think this is one of the best camping sites on Kauai. We all enjoyed Anini Beach in the morning, afternoon, evening and night.
  • Nice area for novice snorkelers. Farther out on the reef you, there are many types of fish and even turtles.
  • Snorkeling, very good! Whole bunch of fish, turtles, sting rays, and many other critters, I didn't actually get to see. Nice and long stretch, not busy. Highly recommended!
