A’Bay at Waikoloa Beach Resort

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 Waikoloa Beach 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.  Given that it is a bay, it is one of the safer beaches on the island.

In the evening, you will find a great spot to take an evening beach walk and take in the beautiful sunsets that Hawaii has to offer.  With the beach being close to a mile in distance, the beach is typically not crowded in any one location in the evening.  The Lava Lava Beach Club is located on A’Bay and is a great place to grab a cocktail and watch the sunset from.

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.
