Nice beach with coarser sand. There are washroom and shower facilities. As a couple I would go to another beach but a family with young children it is ideal.

Went on a day when it's been raining. Easy sandy entry into water and area is calm but too cloudy and not much fish. We had much better experience up and down the coast.

I like this beach because it’s smaller and not horribly busy (at least the days we visited). It’s a 20 minute walk south of the Hilton but it is a bit rough over Lava rock so wear good shoes (that doesn’t include flip flops). The...More

This was our first beach experience upon arriving at Waikoloa Beach Resort Village. Easy to access, basically right in the village, and parking available. It was a nice sandy beach, with moderate waves, good for simply swimming, and the kids had fun trying to body...More

We visited Anaehoomalu Bay in August, 2017 as an excursion while on a cruise. It was listed as a beach day. Our family of 4 had a great day- the beach is really spectacular. The water is clear, calm and great for families. We were...More
