Coconut Island, Hilo

(460+ reviews on the web)
Island Nature / Park
Once the site of a hospital, Coconut Island today serves as a popular beach and outdoor spot in the city. Make your way to the small island via the footbridge, grab a spot on the grass, and kick back with a picnic or a book as you sit surrounded by palm trees. Alternatively, go for a dip from one of the pint-sized beaches or explore the few remaining traces of the old hospital foundation. Be sure to bring your camera, as the island offers sweeping views of the ocean and coastline around you, as well as views across the bay to Hilo. You'll have access to picnic tables and public restrooms on the island. Plan to visit Coconut Island during your Hilo vacation using our convenient Hilo vacation route planner.

  • The area is calm during the week & the water is free from huge waves. It's great for families with smaller children as well as more adventurous people where there is a wall to climb up & flip off of.  more »
  • Great little park to spend a few hours. Beautiful view of Hilo, nice breeze and shade, tidal pools to explore. We wished we had worn our swimsuits for the quaint sandy beach!  more »
  • We walked around here on our first day here. It was a Sunday and it was filled with families enjoying a beautiful day, together. Great views of the ocean and the island.  more »
