Great place to have a stroll in the evening or to spend a day swimming. There are some sunbeds and a rental for beach essentials. Sand is rather coarse and it can be windy sometime!

This is very good local beach. There is a wonderful tide pool nearby, some snorkeling, and a very charming restaurant, Lava Lava Beach Club, that has unparalleled sunsets.

A-Bay is an amazing place to visit while on the island. Beautiful Sandy beaches, nice calm waters, plenty of entertainment and meals in this resort area. It's only drawback is below the surface. Snorkeling and diving here is disappointing as the corals have been trampled...More

This was one of three Kohala beaches we visited on our trip to the Big Island. Mauna Kea and Hapuna are much prettier but A-bay had a lovely walking path along the fish pond that backs the beach. I wouldn't bother trying to snorkel here...More

My family and I visited this beach several days ago for snorkeling. The beach was beautiful and not many folks around, but the water had poor visibility for snorkeling.

A bay is a lovely spot for beach activities and general sunbathing. Bring a picnic and stay all day.

Let me preface to say I live here in Hawaii. My family and I come to Waikoloa for Staycations many times throughout the year. Anaehoomalu Beach is okay. I would suggest going to Hapuna or Mauna Kea beach instead.

Love coming to this beach! It's so tranquil, calm and peaceful. A bit rocky so I recommend water shoes so you can enjoy it even more. Beautiful sunsets as well!

Enjoy a tranquil state beach with amenities, walk to the left to explore more beach and less people, sleeping sea turtles and monk seals, and return for the Lava Lava Beach club drinks at sunset.

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.

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
