Anaehoomalu Bay (A-Bay) Information

Anaehoomalu Bay (A-Bay) Information

Anaehoomalu Bay, sometimes simply called A-Bay, is a gorgeous curve of salt and pepper sand in front of the Outrigger Waikoloa Resort. The beach is great for swimming, scuba diving, snorkeling, and kayaking, and is fairly well protected from strong surf by an offshore reef.

Rare green sea turtles are sometimes seen at the far end of the bay, and a nearby shoreline trail between resort hotels winds along the lava, sand, coral, and tidepools of the Kohala Coast.

A-Bay offers stunning views, especially at sunset, and includes restrooms, showers, picnic tables, and parking.

Just inland from the beach is a large ancient Hawaiian fishpond that was used to raise fish for royal families, and you can still see mullet swimming in that pond. Palm trees sway above and educational plaques sit along the trail to teach you about the area's history.

Turn left at mile marker 76 off Hwy. 19 north, then left again at the road across from Kings' Shops. Beach parking is at the end.
