Anaehoomalu Bay - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
This panorama shows Anaeho'omalu beach. The beach is not often busy, being too far north from Kailua for many people to bother making the trip. The local hotels and resorts have enough resources of their own to keep people happy.

Anaehoomalu Bay - Hawaii Island visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'Anaehoomalu Bay' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from Hawaii.
Panorama of the beach of Anaehoomalu Bay (Anaeho'omalu Beach, locally called A-Bay). The beach lies between the Waikoloa Beach Resort and the Hilton Waikoloa Village and Royal Waikoloan hotel resorts on the West coast of Hawaii, at the north end of North Kona. The beach has numerous sporting activities and is popular for wind surfing and canoing. The Waikoloa Canoe club is based here.
The beach is close to the historical King's Trail and there are over 2-acres of petroglyphs, rock shelters, trails and ancient sites scattered throughout the area. Just behind the beach is a large ancient Hawaiian fishpond, which was used for raising mullet for the royal family. This fishpond is visible in this panoramic picture. The trail surrounding the fish pond has a number of educational boards which explain what used to happen here. These fish ponds are similar to the Kaloko Fishpond in Honokohau Bay.
Travel and Getting There:
Take Highway 19 north from Kailua-Kona toward the Kohala Resort Area. At the 76 Mile Marker turn left, and then left again at the King's Shops. There is parking for Anaehoomalu beach at the end of this road.
