Did anyone catch that Finding Nemo reference? 🙂
When my family and I started planning our trip to Hawaii, my stepmom said that she wanted to swim with sea turtles — and I knew just the place to take her.
Located on the northern coast of Kauai, one of my favorite beaches is nestled among million dollar homes, Kauai’s dramatic mountains, and the bright blue sea. It’s off the busy, two-lane, Kuhio Highway and a five-minute drive along a small road which hugs the coast, so pay attention to the road as you admire those incredible ocean views. 😉 Before you know it you’ll find yourself at ‘Anini Beach Park — my favorite hidden gem on the island.
It’s my favorite beach because it has shade trees so my husband will stay cool and content — while I spend hours snorkeling in the sea. It’s my favorite because it’s not packed with beach bums. It’s my favorite because it has grass, soft sand, picnic tables, BBQ grills, restrooms, and a shower. It’s my favorite because — thanks to the reef off shore — the ocean is very calm, even in the winter months. But most importantly, it’s my favorite beach because every time that we visit we encounter sea turtles.
You wish to swim with sea turtles? Your wish is my command! 🙂
