Anaehoomalu Bay

Well known for amazing, colorful sunsets and extremely consistent Hawaiian weather, Anaehoomalu Bay is a favorite for Big Island weddings along the west coast. Ideal for just about any water sport there is, the bay is also a favorite for exploring marine life during snorkeling and diving. Attentive underwater adventurers may even catch a glimpse of gentle green sea turtles. Picnic areas complete with tables in the shade are great for lunch or an early dinner with a backdrop of hundreds of palms swaying in the ocean breeze.

Settled on the Kohala Coast, a popular haunt for tourists on Hawaii holidays, Anaehoomalu Bay is defined by a long stretch of powdery white sand. Behind this beach in Hawaii lies a number of gentle fish ponds while along the coastline there are numerous small coves which are most often devoid of people. The bay itself is shallow making it a good spot for boats to moor, some which offer Hawaii cruises in the area. Many of the boats offer sailing and Hawaii diving charters and windsurfing lessons and rentals are easily found along the beach. Beach equipment including umbrellas, snorkeling gear and beach chairs are also all available for rent.

Many visitors enjoy a relaxing Hawaii beach vacation in the bay area. Big Island resorts include the Waikoloa complex and the Hilton just north of the main resort. Flanking the Waikoloa Resort is a crescent shaped white sand beach and a number of turquoise coral lagoons ideal for snorkeling and swimming. Visitors interested in Hawaii hiking excursions shouldn't miss the King's Trail, a historical path meandering by rock shelters, ancient Hawaiian sites and more than two acres of Hawaii petroglyphs. The rustic lava road was originally constructed between 1836 and 1855 and circles around most of Big Island.
