Our picks for the best beaches in Hawaii include four beaches from each of the major islands - Hawaii Island (the Big Island), Kauai, Maui and Oahu. We also include two beaches on the island of Lana'i and one on Moloka'i.
Our list is presented in alphabetical order by island. We include several, less well-known, Hawaii beaches that we consider real gems.

Let's begin with out first beach:
'Anaeho'omalu Beach, Waikoloa Beach, Kohala Coast, Big Island of Hawaii
'Anaeho'omalu Beach is located on 'Anaeho'omalu Bay and adjacent to the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa on the Big Island's Kohala Coast.
The beach area features beautifully landscaped walking paths from the resort that meander past ancient Hawaiian fishponds to a golden sand beach fringed by swaying palm trees. Sunsets here are amazing.
A public parking area is available from Kuualii Place off of Waikoloa Beach Drive just past Queens' Marketplace if entering the Waikoloa Resort area.
