Anahola Beach – Anahola – Anahola Bay

Oct 3, 2020 | General Information

Anahola Beach is a great choice for a beach on Kauai. Not only is Anahola picturesque with scenic vistas and a great expanse of beautiful white sand but its protective outer reef of Anahola Bay makes it a less dangerous area in which to enjoy the water than many other beach locations. Anahola Beach also has a lifeguard tower.

The Golden-Brown Sands of Anahola
The beautiful golden brown sands on Anahola Beach extend down into the water providing in most places for a comfortable sand bottom. Waves do come rolling in that are suitable for surfing and boogie boarding and they are some distance away from the shore entry so taking a dip here is not going to necessarily put you in harm’s way of a speeding surf board. With proper caution and supervision children can even be permitted to enjoy the beach here but remember to check in with the lifeguard on the day you arrive to ask about the specific conditions of the day and get his advice regarding the very best place to enter the water for optimum safety.

Surfing is Fun at Anahola Beach
Anahola beach is large, about a half-mile in length and is bordered by points on either side, Kahala Point and Kuaehu Point. Toward the north end of Anahola can be found the river mouth entry of Anahola Stream. Walking the entire distance is an activity all to its own and you may see people out for their daily “constitutional” during the early morning hours. Anahola Bay is one of the most desirous places to live on Kauai and many of the homes you see will reflect its rarefied nature in their pricing.

Ocean Caution at Anahola Beach
Be advised that all beaches and ocean locations in Hawaii can be dangerous including Anahola Beach. Be completely aware of the ocean conditions prior to entering any Hawaiian waters. Be certain that a lifeguard is on duty at this location and be certain to ask him where the best place for you to swim at this beach will be on the day you are there based upon the current ocean and wind conditions. Also, all shorelines and beaches in Hawaii, including this one, can be frequented by sharks, jellyfish and other sea creatures which can provide potential harm to people entering the water.
