Big Island Pictures - Anaehoomalu Beach
Big Island Pictures - Anaehoomalu Beach - About twenty-six miles north of Kailua-Kona along Queen Kaahumanu Hwy, south of the Kohala resort area, is Anaehoomalu Bay Beach, or just A-Bay. Situated directly in front of the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort and Spa, is Anaehoomalu Beach. Anaehoomalu Beach is adorned with granular golden and greyish sand and two beautiful fishponds. Coconut palm dotted paths between the ocean and the fish ponds are a treat to walk through and offer some of the most beautiful sunsets.
The two lovely fish ponds border the beach to the north and south. The Kahapapa Fish Pond to the north has tide pools. The beach is protected by an outer reef making this spot very popular for ocean activities such as snorkeling, diving, kayaking, and windsurfing. There are often sightings of sea turtles resting in the sand along Anaehoomalu Beach.
There are concessions at the north end of Anaehoomalu Beach to supply the items needed for any beach activities you may have interest in. Facilities include restrooms, showers, picnic tables, and plenty of parking. If you are into exploring, nearby is the Mamalahoa Petroglyph Trail, a hike leading through the lava fields to some of the best Hawaiian petroglyphs. The trial is located near the parking lot.
