Anahola Real Estate
The area is easily accessible as the island's main road, the Kuhio Highway (56), runs through it. You'll find it just north of Kealia and Kapaa and just south of Kilauea (the city, not the Kilauea Volcano on the Big Island).
The name Anahola is a Hawaiian word that translates as "deadly winds". Considering it's location on the windward (windy) side of the island, it's easy to understand why this name may have been given.
The island of Kaua'i was one of the last Hawaiian Islands to join the Kingdom of Hawaii during the reign of King Kamehameha. The ruler of Anahola at the time, who was known as Kaumualii, fought off Kamehameha's invasion attempts for years.
Some of the local Anahola area beaches include Papa'a Bay, Anahola Beach Park, North Aliomanu Beach, and South Aliomanu Beach.
