'Anini Beach

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by JenLara on April 3, 2003

'Anini Beach is a small, off-the-beaten-path beach on Kauai's north shore, which apparently is a favorite among locals. How do I know this? I saw one of them, quite a famous one at that, hanging out with his family... and let's just say he likes his martinis shaken, not stirred! Pierce Brosnan himself, who owns a home nearby. Pretty funny to have a celeb sighting out in the middle of nowhere!

The beach is really pretty - the water is *extremely* calm and crystal clear, but the sand, while white and clean, is a little hard and unforgiving. Not powdery like the other beaches, more like tiny little rocks. I did some snorkeling in the water at Anini Beach (with my own gear, you can't rent any there) and there wasn't all that much to see, but it got me geared up for a few days later at Hanauma Bay in Oahu! There was a guy windsailing and a group of people taking a painting class, trying to capture the millions of blue-green hues of the water and sky.

Overall, this is a highly recommended secluded beach for a few hours' stop on a sunny day!
