Anini Beach is a small coastal community on Kauai’s north shore between Kilauea and Princeville. The three mile beach is lined with Anini vacation rentals and luxury homes. The slow pace of this small community invites you to unwind in a secluded piece of paradise, with dining, shopping and entertainment just a short drive away.
Things to Do
Because Anini is as small as it is, there isn’t a lot of local activity or adventure to be had. Our luxury vacation rental properties in Anini will appeal to those looking to get away from it all and enjoy the surf and sand of the beautiful Anini Beach. You need not worry though as there is plenty to see and do in the neighboring towns of Hanalei and Kilauea. The old Waioli Church in Hanalei is said to be the most photographed building in Hawaii. One look at its beautiful stained glass windows makes it easy to see why. Right next door to the church is the Waioli Mission House. Originally built in the 1800’s, this was home to Hawaii’s early Christian missionaries. Golfers will enjoy playing the championship courses in Princeville and nature lovers will want to explore Natural Wildlife Refuge which is home to several of Hawaii’s endangered water birds. The Na Aina Kai Botanical Gardens in Kilauea consist of 13 diverse gardens complete with canyons, lagoons, a beach, an impressive bronze sculpture collection, and children’s garden making this another dream location for great photos. Adventure seekers may opt to zip line at Princeville Ranch Adventures, or catch a helicopter tour out of the Princeville airport to explore the incredible Na Pali coast.
Our luxury vacation rentals in Anini are located on the spectacular Anini Beach. This is considered the safest beach on the north shore and one of only a few that allows beachgoers to continue swimming throughout the winter months when the ocean around Kauai is at its most dangerous. The beach is protected by the largest reef in Hawaii which keeps the larger waves at bay. This also provides for some pretty spectacular snorkelling as there is an abundance of marine life living in and around the reef. For a change in scenery, try the beach at Hanalei Bay. This two-mile white sand beach is generally good for swimming, especially in the summer. Regardless of the season, the water is always calmer closer to the pier.
Restaurants & Nightlife
Even if you choose to make regular use of the kitchen in your Anini vacation rental, it’s nice to have the option of dining out in nearby Hanalei or Kilauea. The Bali Hai restaurant in Hanalei combines delicious food with a great view of the bay and mountain range in the background. If you’d like to enjoy drinks and some live music, try the cleverly named Bar Acuda and Tahiti Nui, also in Hanalei. The Kilauea Bakery is the perfect lunch destination with delicious soups, salads and pizzas. Be fairly warned though, their baked goods are sinfully delicious!
Guests staying at a luxury rental property in Anini will enjoy the boutique shopping just 15 minutes away in nearby Hanalei. Kiluaea is home to the Kong Lung Trading Co which is known for unique higher end items. The resort area of Princeville also offers some great shopping.
Weather and Ocean Conditions
The weather near our Anini vacation rentals is typical of Kauai’s north shore. While the center of the island is known as the rainiest place on earth, the coastal communities receive much less precipitation than inland areas. The temperatures range from a low of 68 F to 79 F in the winter, and 74 F to 84 F in July. The Hawaiian trade winds blow across Kauai from the northeast, keeping things comfortable year-round. Ocean swells are influenced by weather conditions and wind so the ocean can change from day to day. Please take precautions and read the safety signs posted on our beaches as these are there for your protection.
This is a very small community and you’ll likely want to explore the areas around your Anini vacation rental, especially for shopping and dining. The surrounding communities offer sightseeing and other activities not available in Anini, and these will be much easier to access if you have a rental car. Should you require assistance with booking, our concierge is on-hand and ready to help with arrangements.
