Fodor's Expert Review Lava Lava Beach Club

$$ The Kohala Coast Hawaiian Fodor's Choice

Dig your toes into the sand at Anaehoomalu Bay and enjoy one of the most happening, entertaining, and memorable bar/restaurants on the Kohala Coast. The atmosphere is supercasual—you can dine in your beach togs. There's always something going on: the blowing of the conch shell at dusk, the lighting of the tiki torches, tropical cocktails served in Hawaiiana ceramic ware, and live entertainment featuring stellar Hawaiian recording artists. As for the food, there's something for everybody, whether you want cocktails and pupus for sunset or a fine-dining experience. Highlights include Parmesan lava tots with truffle oil, coconut shrimp, black Angus truffled New York steak, or the chef's signature gazpacho topped with mac-nut pesto.
