Anahola Beach Park information
Lonely Planet review
Hidden from the highway, this locals’ beach makes an easy getaway – more secluded yet still with drive-up accessibility. Because this county park sits on Hawaiian Home Lands, you’ll probably share the beach with Hawaiian families, especially on weekends. Remember, it’s their beach: respect the locals. The wide bay, fringed with a decent swath of lovely sandy beach, is a surfers’ hot spot on the choppier south end. But toward the north, waters are calm enough for swimming. There are two ways to get here: for the south end, turn off Kuhio Hwy onto Kukuihale Rd at the 13-mile marker, drive a mile down and then turn onto the dirt beach road. For the north end, take ʻAliomanu Rd at the 14-mile marker and park in the sandy lot.
