Anahola Beach is a beautiful white sand fringed bay, with generally good swimming and snorkeling most of the year due to a protective outlying reef, located on the east side of the Bay.
To get to the beach, you will pass through a local, residential neighborhood and then find the gravel dirt parking area. The beach is mostly trafficked by locals and when the surf is up, you will see the surfer kids riding the beach break to the left of the reef. This is the part of the bay where conditions can be dangerous for swimming when the surf is up. But wherever you are, with the swaying trees fringing the back of the shoreline and spectacular views of the Mountains of Kalalea, you’ll want to sit back, relax and soak up the scenery.
Entering the ocean anywhere along the Kauai coastline can be dangerous. Surf and ocean conditions change daily. Before entering the ocean check with a lifeguard or a current ocean safety report. To ensure safety swim only at lifeguarded beaches.
