Overview of Anahola Beach Park

Anahola Beach Park

Hawaiian Islands


Anahola Beach Park offers something for everyone. There is a great beach for soaking up some Sun; the sandy entry makes it perfect for kids playing in the surf; there is good snorkeling and beginning diving just off shore; and, for the more adventurous, a good kick-out will get you to some excellent diving at the point.

Directions: Heading North on Highway 56 from Lihu'e, turn right on Anahola Road at about mile mark 13.6. You'll find the park after about .6 mile.

08/17/2014 Violavicki (Avg: 3.58 Review) - Compared to other Kaua'I beaches, this one is much less busy and used by more locals. You will see net fisherman and dogs, even though they aren't allowed. The ease of entry was great. But it was very shallow for a long time until you exit the fringing reef, so protect your skin with an exposure suit. The near shore reef was only in okay condition, and the were a variety of fish, but not in huge numbers. Saw octopus, sergeant majors, puffer, etc.

05/07/2009 Ronald Zahm (Avg: 2.71 Review) - 04/06/2009 - This is a beautiful beach with decent facilities. However, the day I tried snorkeling here, the water was very cloudy and there was little to see. Not recommended for snorkeling.

This is a view from the other side of the point, showing what to expect once you kick around. There are access roads from the park to the bluff over the point should you require a closer, yet more difficult entry.
