Our family adventure Blog of places to go, food to eat, things to do & people to meet… where people gather.
Built in 1913, the lighthouse started serving as a pivotal navigation aid for ships sailing on the Orient run. It is currently under restoration. This area is also refuge to a variety of wildlife (The Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge). We made sure our mouths were closed every time we looked up… you just never know when these birds might drop one on you. CLICK HERE to read more about the Wildlife Refuge.
Life’s a beach!”
Getting to the beach on Anini road, we drove past the Anini Beach park and kept going for no more than 4 miles till there’s nowhere to go.
There aren’t as many people in this area and mostly used by people renting the beach cottages on this road. On our next visit, we will be renting one of these cottages. It’s close to town and you get your own private beach area. If you go this route too, say you found them here! The water is calm and warm and there’s a spit you can walk to if you like to sun bathe while in about an inch of water. It’s a bit rocky so bring your water shoes to get to the spit comfortably or if you don’t mind stone and seaweeds between your toes while getting there, then go barefoot. We noticed campers along the reef while at the beach. I found out that most county beaches on this island allow camping. So if you’re a die-hard camper, you won’t have any problems finding a spot with a great view.
Enjoy our slideshow. I have to rest up for tomorrow’s sunset dinner and snorkeling cruise on Capt. Andy’s catamaran along the Napali coast!
