Anahola Beach Park is located a short distance off the Kuhio highway through a residential area, with a posted 20 MPH speed limit. Obey the speed or even slower while watching for keiki playing. Anahola Beach Park is more of a local’s beach but felt very safe. The beach is life guarded and it is suitable for swimming and snorkeling.... More

calm waters, uncrowded except for a few locals we had the whole place to ourselves. They have showers and bathroom by the lifeguard stand as well as another outdoor shower near the end of beach. Lots of trees for shade.

We visited this beach long ago, but made the detour to check out again. Even if you do not sped time on the beach, the road to/from it is delightful

Anahola Beach Park is about 1/2 mile long of white sand being kissed by calm Pacific waters. The beach is protected by a reef so there is hardly any big surf breaks. It is accessible right off the highway or by Kauai Path, a paved walking and biking path. There are lots of amenities like restrooms, cold water showers, grills,... More

I like this beach. Under fifteen minutes from my house, which means I'm able to frequent it more than some other beaches. Large, few numbers during the week, and a nice river to paddle board up. I like it here a good bit.

Took a ride to this beach which had nice sandy shore and a good snorkeling beach. There were a lot of trees and we did not need to use umbrellas. The bay is awesome.

No facilities and not really anything to do there except swim or fish but it's a nice quiet beach if you want to get away from the crowds.

The access road is in sincere need of dirt to fill the potholes, there were a lot of shady locals hanging around in tents, and the views were only ok. I'd skip this beach unless I had nothing else to do.

I love swimming down by the end of the beach park/bay. Nice place for families. They have restrooms and a fresh water shower.

Great place to snorkel and to swim for families with smaller kids. We thought we would all snorkel here. But, my teenaged boys soon wanted more waves and thus we moved to a less protected beach soon after arrival.
