All reviews black sand sea turtles nice beach tide pools great snorkeling lifeguard on duty on the rocks snorkel spot beautiful fish turtle viewing picnic tables large turtles water shoes crashing waves low tide downtown hilo the big island
A great place to spent time. Pack a lunch and enjoy the black sand beach, sit in the sun on the grass and just relax. Beautiful trees nd lush surroundings. It is a rocky beach but okay to snorkle if you are luckly you will...More
It is beautiful but if you go on a day with coarse waters, it could be less than enjoyable trying to snorkel. Also, if your feet aren't used to rocks, you should probably have covers on when not wearing flippers in the water.
Here is a relatively protected area from the waves, complete with life guards. You will see lots of coral and tropical fish and you may see a turtle or two they say (I didn't there, but I saw several at Carlsmith Beach Park). If you...More
This area was recommended so we headed down, the bad; there was very little sand mostly rocky (lava rock) right to the water, not what I would call a swimming beach having said that the swell was quite large at the time of our visit....More
This is a nice park, not tiny but not big either. It is right off the road just outside of Hilo. Plus it is free. There is a small black sand beach....other areas are rocky by the ocean. There were numerous people enjoying various water...More

Not far and yes but they are about 45-60 minutes away by car. Kaimu has one you can hike to but it's no good for swimming, although it does have a bar and food and if you go Wednesday nights there is a big market and live music. If you want to hang out on a beach and swim, Kehena is a large beach great for swimming but I do recommend swim shoes of some sort and you may see some naked hippies. Both beaches are in the same area Kaimu is right by Kalapana and Kehena is along the ocean heading to Seaview from Kaimu. Aloha!
