Anini Beach is an idyllic spot between Kilauea and Princeville on the island’s beautiful north coast. The scenic drive is reason enough to visit this breathtakingly beautiful beach as the road follows the contours of the coastline delivering spectacular views at every twist and turn.
Anini Beach is the quintessential desert island hideaway with pristine sands and calm clear waters in summer. Park your car and head over to the fish taco truck for a tasty bite before heading down onto the sand.
The beach is a prime spot for snorkelling along Hawaii’s longest reef. You can spot shoals of colourful triggerfish and turtles just 10 feet from the shore.
It’s also ideal for enjoying a walk although the 3-mile stretch of sand which can be soft in places. Watch people windsurfing, paddle boarding and fishing and keep your eyes peeled for exotic seashells tossed up from the deep.
The beach has bathrooms, showers and plenty of parking but no lifeguard. Although the waters are calm in summer, it’s a different story in winter when the surf kicks up. Beyond the protective reef there are strong currents in the channels so always exercise caution.
