Holiday at a Beach in Hilo, Hawaii Island, Hawaii, United States

Hilo, located on the east side of the Big Island of Hawaii, is known for its lush rainforests and dramatic waterfalls. Although Hilo might not be famous for its beaches like other parts of Hawaii, there are still some beautiful beach spots to enjoy.

Beach Type

The beaches in Hilo are different from the powdery white sand beaches found elsewhere in Hawaii. The sand varies from black to golden and can be coarse or fine depending on the beach. Many beaches in Hilo have a mix of sand and pebbles or rocks as they are formed from lava flow entering the ocean.

One popular beach in Hilo is Carlsmith Beach Park, also known as Four Mile Beach. This beach has a mix of coarse sand and pebbles with lava rock formations. The rocky shoreline provides an excellent environment for marine life, making it perfect for snorkeling and diving.

Activities

Since many beaches in Hilo have rocky or coral reefs close to shore, they offer fantastic opportunities for snorkeling and diving. Exploring underwater will allow you to witness colorful fish species and other marine life thriving in these habitats.

In addition to snorkeling and diving, some other popular activities at Hilo's beaches include:

  • Swimming: The calm lagoon-like waters at Carlsmith Beach Park make it perfect for swimming.
  • Picnicking: Many beach parks like Richardson Ocean Park have picnic facilities where you can enjoy a meal with friends or family.
  • Surfing: Honoli'i Beach Park is a popular spot for surfing, especially for beginners.
  • Paddleboarding: Stand-up paddleboarding is another great activity to try at various calmer beach areas around Hilo.

Accommodations

Hilo has several hotels and vacation rentals that cater to different budgets and preferences. Some popular options include the Grand Naniloa Hotel Hilo, Hilo Seaside Hotel, and Castle Hilo Hawaiian Hotel. Staying in the downtown Hilo area will give you easy access to local attractions, restaurants, and shops.

For a more tranquil experience, consider staying at a vacation rental or B&B outside of downtown Hilo, closer to the beach parks.

Beach Amenities

Hilo's beach parks offer various amenities for visitors:

  • Restrooms and shower facilities: Most beach parks have restrooms and outdoor showers for rinsing off after swimming.
  • Picnic tables and pavilions: Enjoy a meal or relax in the shade at one of the many picnic areas.
  • Lifeguards: Some beaches, like Carlsmith Beach Park, have lifeguard stations for added safety.
  • Parking: Free parking is available at most beach parks in Hilo.

While Hilo might not be known for its white sand beaches, it still offers a unique and enjoyable beach experience. The rocky shorelines provide excellent opportunities for snorkeling and diving, while other activities like swimming, picnicking, surfing, and paddleboarding can also be enjoyed. With various accommodation options available and several beach amenities at your disposal, your holiday at a Hilo beach is sure to be memorable.
