Anini is a wonderful snorkeling spot and we especially enjoyed the numerous turtles. Summer only, the current is strong in winter. Lots of the reef is dead, so sad. More fish and life than Anahola. Wonderful place to spend the day, but we didn't get past the protected reef.

Compared to other Kaua'I beaches, this one is much less busy and used by more locals. You will see net fisherman and dogs, even though they aren't allowed. The ease of entry was great. But it was very shallow for a long time until you exit the fringing reef, so protect your skin with an exposure suit. The near shore reef was only in okay condition, and the were a variety of fish, but not in huge numbers. Saw octopus, sergeant majors, puffer, etc.
