on the northeast shore of Kaua'i, is a large, secluded, pristine white sand beach. (Be advised that ocean conditions can be unpredictable and unsuitable for swimming at times. Please use cautionary discretion when entering the ocean at any location on the island). The Moloa'a beach bay is nearly 1/2 mile long where you can go hiking, snorkeling, body boarding, surfing, shelling, swimming, sunbathing, picnics, sunsets and being away from the crowds. The name comes from molo a'a in the Hawaiian language which means "matted roots". Paper Mulberry trees (wauke in Hawaiian) once grew so thickly that the roots were interwoven. The Moloa'a Stream meanders through the valley along side Moloa'a road and empties near the north end of the beach which is backed by high cliffs. Uphill from the bay is the Moloa'a State Forest Reserve.
Truly "Off-The-Beaten-Path" giving one the sense of an exclusive & genuine experience of the REAL Hawaii. Moloa'a Beach has the least amount of rain of any north shore Kauai beach. Annual average rainfall is 25".
Also in Anahola is the Aliomanu Bay Beach
where we have a 1 br honeymoon cottage rental
that sleeps 4, with a short 1 minute walk to the sand. Tucked away on a quiet, country beach road, this tranquil cottage is perfect for those seeking to truly unwind and explore Kauai's breezy East side. The cottage sits on a large lot it shares with a private beachfront home. Beach access is a few steps away out the front door, to the road, and down the stream-side path. The beach is protected by a coral reef, located about 50 yards out. No big waves come into the swimming area. At low tide you can examine the tide pools or walk out to the reef in shallow water, though there are deeper places to swim and snorkel.
