This beach park is a great spot to check out the surfers or look for the turtles swimming in the area. The river is beautiful.

The view is magnificent - a great place for photos due to the view and the fact that it is a popular surfing 🏄 spot. Well worth a visit and the drive to reach it is worth the trip as well.

This is a great place for the surfers. Many of the locals gather with there friends to go surfing and suntanning.

Tis is a great location to watch surfers and enjoy a beautiful view just a few miles north of Hilo. The beach is a little hard to find and there are not many places to park, so arrive early. There are restroom facilities.

This is the best surf right around Hilo. Great little beach area with black sand. Gets super crowded if it's nice out.

Stopped by here and enjoyed ourselves. We would recommend a stop when you are on the Hilo side of the Island

This is a good beach to watch surfers. Not good for swimming or surfing if you are not an experienced surfer!

Didn't have my surfboard with me, so I just came here to body board and enjoy the waves. The locals were friendly and there were all skill levels of surfers and body boarders there—something that can't be said for many of the surf spots I've...More

If you use Honoli'i Beach Park as a beach, you will die. No Beach. Surfing only. And yes, there is a serious drug problem in nearby Hilo and Puna district.
