There is a spot where local teens jump from a tower into the water to swim. There are public restrooms here and a few benches and picnic areas... More

Fun little island to take a stroll around. Stop and read about tsunamis. Look at the coconut palm with waterlines marked up the trunk showing heights of past tsunamis.

Coconut Island has a small parking lot but we were lucky & got front spot. We walked across the bridge across water to get out to island & go swimming or jumping off the stone tower.

Many tide pool areas to view and picture. Great swimming, picnicking, and a great place to exercise.

I would recommend coming here to anyone who wants to see how the locals kick it. Great place to swim, for families and kids. The sunrise is amazing here, and the sunset will take your breath away.

This is part of a magnificent park with lots of walking trails. We spent a couple of hours wandering, enjoying the view of the bay and tropical scenery.

Truly a beautiful place! The park is large and has sweeping views of the Hilo Bay. Lots of open green space and some calm areas for kids to swim and play. Many kids were jumping off a concrete wall. Not sure how safe this one but other than a few belly flops, everyone appeared to be having a great time.... More

The combination of history and scenery should not be missed at this well hidden island. The Island is just a few steps from the Hilo Hawaiian Hotel. I felt we got a bonus when standing on my balcony. It is awesome.
