Camp at Anini Beach Park

Hawaii Anini Beach Park

Added by The Outbound Collective

  • Family friendly and a great place to bring the little ones
  • A must see if you are a snorkeler
  • If you have a permit to camp here, it will be well worth it for the sunrise views

The shallow nearshore ocean bottom makes Anini a great beach to visit if you have kids. Anini Beach Park is also a snorkeler's delight - here you may spot Hawaii's state fish, the humuhumunukunukuapua'a (triggerfish) and uhu (parrotfish), kala (unicornfish) and other tropical fish. On the downside, there are some sharp corals and rocks on the nearshore ocean bottom, so take extra care when wading in. The area's consistent breeze makes for good windsurfing conditions and is a good spot for beginners. At the western end of the beach (near where the road ends) there is a channel where the currents can be strong, especially when the surf is up, so it's not a good idea to swim here.

Camping is allowed at this beach park with a permit. For permit details, click here: here. You can also contact the county of Kauai with any additional questions you may have at 808-241-4463.

How to Get There

Great Place to watch the sunrise

My sister and I just pulled our jeep over and slept. We wanted to watch the sunrise and didn't have our tents. No one bothered us about permits, so I can't speak to that. There was a variety of campers ranging from families to groups of happy hippies. Rad rad spot. And the roosters wake you up early, so you won't miss the sunrise!

Are camping reservations required here? Or might I be able to just "pop" in and find myself a nice sandy place to sleep...
