I just got back from a trip to the Big Island of Hawaii. The Waikoloa Marriott's beach is on Anaehoomalu Bay, and we experienced the Bay on two glass-bottom boat rides from the beach. Offshore the Bay is not especially deep--we saw lots of coral, about 6-12 feet down, along with small but colorful fish and a couple of small... More

Stand on the sand and watch the sun go down. It's an amazing place and we were happy to find it. So peaceful and not overly crowded.

The beach is gorgeous with a lagoon full with fish, manta rays and sometimes green turtles. At the time we visited part of the beach was... More

Nice beach but full of tourists from the Waikoloa Resort. Lava lava Club is located here for Happy Hour or sunset drinks. If you're not staying in Waikoloa, skip it and go to Hapuna 10 minutes north.

Small bay beach accessible to the public from Waikoloa Beach Drive. Pretty for photos, pretty at sunset, warm calm water. The beach was closed during our stay, but was still accessible from the Lava Lava Beach club.

Arriving in late afternoon and was told the beach was closed due to construction. We were re-routed to an adjacent beach in front of the Marriott. The beach there (and also at A beach) was pretty narrow, not much sand and lots of pebbles in the water. Not a good sunning or swimming beach. We did some snorkeling offshore and... More

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
