    Favorite thing: As I was wandering along the beach near my hotel, I was stepping from rock to rock, looking for fish and sea turtles to photograph. In addition to these, I noticed a crab on one of the rocks It was one of the largest crabs I had seen: about 6 inches across. I was wondering if he would stay still enough to photograph; fortunately he complied. It was a good thing I wasn't wading, or I would have been in for a surprise!

    Anaeho'omalu Beach & Bay

    Anaeho'omalu Bay

    Favorite thing: This crescent shaped beach is an ideal spot for swimming, snorkeling and diving. It has public access plus it fronts the Marriott Resort. A reef offshore protects the bay from strong currents and surf.

    -No lifeguards
    -Rocks & coral in water (wear aqua-shoes or fins)
    -Shady areas available
    -Picnic tables
    -Winds pick up in winter months. Best snorkeling is in the morning.
    -rentals available, windsurfing, canoes, aqua-bikes, etc.
    -picturesque setting with coconut palms

    The winds are strong in winter months and snorkeling/diving is best during morning hours. Visibility dimishes as winds picks up in the afternoon.

    From Highway 19 traveling north, make a left across from road that takes you to King's Shops.

    Fondest memory: Snorkeling with sea turtles!

    Favorite thing: The best thing that I did while I was there and go hiking. Saw a lot of cool things like the petroglyphs portrayed on the other page, as well as found lava tubes, wet and dry ones.
