Anaehoomalu, Waikoloa
(3.9/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
Commonly referred to as "A-Bay," Anaehoomalu features a wide expanse of soft sand and snorkeling opportunities. You can relax on one of the sun loungers or explore the water by paddleboard or kayak, which are available to rent. A glass bottom-boat trip also departs from the beach. If you take time to explore the area, you'll find it harbors ancient sites, petroglyphs, and rock shelters. Those who need respite from the Hawaiian sun can find plenty of shade under the large palm trees that fringe the bay. Bring a picnic along or grab a bite to eat from the snack shack. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Kohala Coast holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Anaehoomalu and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • My four grandchildren loved it because the sand was soft and the water shallow. This area is very protected and is close to all of the Waikoloa hotels.
