Day 4 - Anaehoomalu Bay Known as "A" Bay

There is no sandy beach on the resort so we decided to go to Anaehoomalu Bay known as "A" bay but it is a lot simpler to remember the short name.  "A" bay is less than 5 minutes drive from our resort.   "A"  bay is a favorite amongst local for exploring marine life during snorkeling and diving.  The kids saw turtles, fish, and lots of sea urchins.  There are also lots of shaded area for Picnic or lunch.   The bay itself is shallow making it a good spot for boats to moor in the area and it is also safe for little kids.  The powerful earthquake of Japan that generated Tsunami has left a scare on "A" Bay.  I don't have a picture to show it but a portion of the sand has been washed away creating a little pond in the far end of the beach.


Fun, fun, fun....

The kids rented some equipment for snorkeling.



Taxi boat...They can take you out to sea.  I'll pass since I get sea sick easily!




The Ocean was pretty calm so it was a good day for snorkeling.


We found a shaded area to rest while keeping an eye on the kids.

Gorgeous tree sitting on top lava rocks right on the beach.

Lava Rocks mixed with sand...

The roots of this tree were humongous and they are sticking out of the ground.

The roots are so interesting to look at.


Did the Tsunami knocked these trees down?

Gorgeous view of the Ocean.


This beach is fairly small but it is quite interesting to look at.


The guys got bored so they whipped out a deck of card for entertaining.
