Plenty of parking, a long flat beach. A reef keeps the water calm so you can snorkel freely. Restroom facilities and plenty of space makes this a pretty nice stop.

Spent a couple of hours at Anini Beach because it was recommended by our hotel. Since I get easily freaked out in the water (saw Jaws too young), this was a nice place to be. The water was shallow enough to stand up in it...More

We went early in the morning and parking wasn't an issue. It did fill up fast as the day went on. There was more parking than at some of the beaches in the area.

Poipou beach park and Anini were our favorites when we went a month ago. Many others were still closed, but may be open now.

I was just at Anini May6th/7th. It didn’t appear to have any damage at all. We camped about 15 feet from the ocean. The water was clear so it should be nice for your trip!
