Right by the best bar and restaurant in town, put your feet in the sand when sipping on your cocktail at Lava Lava, because is alright but there are a lot of rocks.

Georgeous beach with great sunset. Well protected for playing in the ocean. Kayak and paddleboard rentals are in site as well as snorkeling, diving and sunset boat tours. Very relaxing.

Not your typical white sand beach, but water is still crystal clear with sunny views and beautiful landscape. Highly recommended!

Even the locals call it A-Bay. This is a great beach to sit.Lots of shade and a good view. Snorkeling is OK, but not great.

A' Bay, as locals call it, is a beautiful but small sandy beach located near the Waikoloa resorts. Perfect spot for seeing turtles feeding in the water, please give them their space. Go early for calm waters, the winds pick up in the afternoon. Rentals...More

We stayed at the Marriott they had a bunch of renovations going on but it is going to be beautiful when they are done. Our room and all the employees are really nice and very helpful if you don't know the area.

I'm having a wonderful time with my humans at Anaehoomalu Bay. Started the day with a walk along the beach enjoying watching the fishing, snorkeling and canoeing activities. Stopped to take pictures in the lush gardens and but the pond. Aloha, Mervyn

I saw my first turtle here! This beach is only a 10 minute walk from our condo and i liked it the best of all the Kohola beaches. It has a little bit of everything. Free parking. Cheap concession. Nice (but expensive) Lava Lava Beach...More

The water at Anaehoomalu Bay isn’t crystal clear, but it is calm and very good for swimming. There are places nearby for food and beach rentals and plenty of free chairs to sit on. Great choice if you want to enjoy an almost wave-free beach.

I do not believe you can on the beach, I don't recall seeing anyone doing so. There is a grocery in the mall coming to the beach. Great fresh foods that will satisfy for sure.
What is the best time of the day to see the sea turtles at this location?

We saw them in the mid afternoon over to the right hand side of the Bay. I was snorkeling there when to my surprise I saw a turtle swimming along about one foot beneath me. I could have touched it. This continued for several... More
