Destination guide

Discover heavenly Anini Beach

Find a postcard-perfect scene in Anini Beach, a sun-drenched getaway on Kauai’s north shore. From sipping freshly-made Mai Tais and combing the sand for tiny Kahelelani shells to snorkeling among colorful parrotfish and kayaking through the crystal-clear waters above the reef, entertainment is easy to come by, and Anini Beach vacation rentals are a great way to ensure you stay close to the action. Whether you’re seeking a classic Hawaiian cottage for 2 or a rental with room for the whole family, you’ll find most homes place you within steps of the sand.

Things to do

Enjoy a relaxed pace in Anini Beach

Dragging yourself away from the beach may require a generous helping of willpower but the Na ‘Aina Kai Botanical Gardens and Sculpture Park makes the effort worthwhile. This 240-acre preserve, once used for sugarcane farming, now offers Eden-like surroundings, complete with fountains, cascading waterfalls, a desert garden, and almost 100 whimsical bronze statues. Before heading back to your Anini Beach vacation rental, savoring the catch of the day while enjoying a traditional hula dance performance in an al fresco restaurant in Princeville can be a lovely way to round off your day in paradise.


Splash out in the waters off Anini Beach

The 2-mile-long reef that hugs the shoreline of Anini Beach creates a shallow lagoon that’s perfect for families at play. The calm waters provide an idyllic setting for youngsters to splash in the shallows, learn to swim, or try their hand at kayaking and snorkeling. Older travelers and those who are more confident in the water can head to the northwestern part of the reef where a 60-foot drop serves up the perfect spot for diving. Past the reef, you’ll find the water a little choppier and ideal for pastimes such as windsurfing and kiteboarding.


Savor all 4 seasons in Anini Beach

The temperature in Anini Beach rarely falls below the mid-70s, so you can expect to return home with a golden Hawaiian glow no matter when you plan your getaway, although travelers hoping to enjoy their break in the summer months of July and August should book their preferred rental several months in advance. The same applies if you fancy some good old winter sun, although you should be aware that winter here comes with a fair number of rainy days. If avoiding the crowds is on the top of your wish list, consider a stay in spring or fall.
