We've cruised all over Kauai and stopped at several beaches. Anini Beach was the perfect beach for us. Restrooms, plenty of picnic tables, parking and shade on the beach when you just can't take hours of the beautiful, but scorching Hawaiian sun. The waves were...More

This was the first beach at which I did some snorkeling. Within 10 minutes, I came across a sea turtle swimming around. I did not see one after that in Kauai. This park has a sufficient amount of parking, it has plenty of picnic tables,...More

We go to Kauai A LOT and Anini beach is our favorite. It is a great place to go with kids, because the water is shallow and calm. There is also great snorkeling and you often see turtles. We love it there.
