Paddle boarding to swimming, A Bay is fun for the whole family. Rent snorkel gear or dive offshore. Watch fishermen and enjoy the sunsets. Take a sunset sail to top off the day. Or drop by Lava Lava for happy hour.

This beach is nice and located close to the Marriot and Hilton as well as many condos. The sand is actually more like pebbles and can hurt your feet. Water shoes are a must here.

We stayed at Kings Land, so this bay was just a short bus ride away. We walked through the Marriott to get there. The water was calm on all days we were there and there are a couple of little stands. There is a shaved ice stand and his prices are reasonable - about $3.5 for a huge one! He... More

We have been to many of the beaches on the big island but Anaehoomalu bay has to be one of the best beaches for families especially with small children. There is a barrier of lava out in the bay which make the waves very calm and gentle. You can snorkel, kayak, body board and some even kite board in this... More

Calm water and Sandy bottom made for good swimming. Restrooms and showers available. Right by Waikoloa resorts. Great black and white mix of sand.

I love this beach. Get there early and you can even get a lounge chair. Great breeze.. there are trees so there can be shade. It does get busy. Popular with tourists and locals alike.

The "A Bay" is a wonderful place to stroll...grab a shave ice at the little hut on the beach, Wade into refreshing warm, smooth currents and enjoy the day...but don't forget to stay for a beautiful sunset. While the water is not as clear as some other beaches in the area, it makes up for it in tranquility and less... More
