We enjoyed all the little stops around Hilo. This island is close to the mail drive through Hilo and beautiful from all sides.

This is a small island with some coconut trees on it. Not as many coconut as the name suggested but still cool. This island is really cool to walk around. Definitely worth a visit.

The bay is such a pretty sight. The small island is convenient and quaint. Great coconut trees tower over picnic tables. We even saw visitors jump off the tower! And it was still a peaceful visit.

I went originally to see the coconut tree with the four Tsunami markers. But then enjoyed being on a small island and walking around looking at the rocks and water and great view. It's easy to access across a walking bridge.

What a great place for a picnic or a walk. Great views in every direction in the Hilo Bay. Good place to swim and snorkel too. Easy to get to with free parking.

Nice location in town to go have a picnic/take-out lunch. Surrounded by ocean, quiet, shaded, lots of room and washrooms. Small size so a good walk spot as well. Little, sheltered and shallow cove for small kids to swim. As well, a separate small sandy...More

If you go visit Liliuokalani Park and Gardens, walk out to Coconut Island. But there's not a lot to see, just nice views of Hilo Bay. Not worth visiting on its own, though.
