Anaeho’omalu Bay, better known as A’Bay, is is a beautiful, crescent shaped white sand beach in the Waikoloa Beach Resort. A’Bay offers some amazing daytime activities and is famous for beautiful sunset settings in the evening.
A’Bay is located in front of the Marriott hotel and Kolea. The white sands are just steps away from both of these locations. This area of the bay is filled with activities. Boats go out hourly for snorkeling, scuba diving, whale watches in the winter, and lunch sails. If you do not want to do a paid excursion, you can rent some fins and snorkeling gear at the shack at A’Bay and enjoy some wonderful snorkeling. Sea turtles are plentiful in this area. You can also rent out kayaks, hydro bikes, and much more.
In the evening, there are dinner and sunset sails that go out. I have had the opportunity to take the dinner sail. The cocktails were complementary and surprisingly the food was excellent. We took a small sail near the Mauna Lani Resort. We anchored there and enjoyed the sunset while we ate and then we went back to A’Bay. It was an easy sail so if you are worried about getting sea sick it should not be a problem. If you do not wish to go out, you can sit on the beach and have a wonderful view of a beautiful Hawaiian sunset.
If the action packed beach area in front of Kolea is too busy for your liking you can walk down the beach almost a mile and find a very peaceful, romantic area of of A’Bay. Since A’Bay is crescent shaped from this area you will be looking across the ocean and lava rocks and see Kolea across the way. The sea turtles love resting in this area of A’Bay.
