Rural out of the way a park

This park is in a very secluded scenic location where local residents can enjoy the basketball courts and ocean.

The only reason to visit this beach Park is to hike through to the hidden gem that is Hanomalino Beach. Lots of locals who appeared to have had a hard life were present and ensuring ya tourists did not feel welcome.

We went to beach due to proximity to house we rented - but would not go here by choice
Feb 2018 • Family
This beach is within an old fishing village. It is well known to the island residents and does have an important place in history. We stayed in a rental home about 5 minutes away in Miloli'i beach road access area. This beach area was recommended to us by the property owner and property manager as a place we could go swimming, snorkeling, and launch the kayaks from.
The "white wall" area had many locals visiting it both times we ventured down to the park.
The road to get to it is winding and one lane at times which is fine as most people drive appropriately.
The neighbourhood you drive through is alittle run down and when you get to bay area and drive past white wall to community centre parking lot, the area does not have aot of parking, nor was it very clean. Also usually in use by locals.
We did want to go kayaking so circled back to the lava rock beach area (there is no sand at the beach location) and parked along the side of road to enjoy the sun, and try kayaking. We have both done alot of kayaking but the waves were big as were the rocks beneath the surface so we did not stay in the water long.
We did enjoy some reading and sitting in the sun, but we brought our own beach chairs otherwise no real place to sit. There was a couple picnic tables but they were in use by other locals.
I would not recommend this as a beach for swimming snorkelling or kayaking there are better options within 30 minute drive.
Local residents seemed friendly, but the area looks alittle rough.Locals on the island have alot of respect for this little village however due to its history and stewardship of the fishing community.
We did not venture the hike through private property to the other beach (which is an actual sand beach) as some people recommend, I guess a Canadians we follow the "Private property - no trespassing" signs that others dont.I heard from other neighbours where we stayed that the hike is worth doing (about 20 minutes one-way) to that other beach as its a great beach apparently.

While visiting the big island of Hawaii our family parked at Miloli'i Beach County Park to access the trailhead to Honomalino Bay. Nice park for a BBQ or picnic.

OK BEACH if you have the time
Dec 2015 • Friends
Local Beach. Steep drive to get the beach off the highway.

Nice area to visit the beach and see the Friendly Locals.

Nice for tourists to stop by from 30 minutes to 2 hours

Sacred Places

MILOLII is not only iconic to the opelu (mackerel), it is also iconic for its hospitality. The residents of MILOLII may stare and watch you closely when visiting, but it's because they are very protective of their resources.

If you ever get a chance to sit under the pavilion with "Aunty Shirley Casuga," she will feed you food, MILOLII spirit, and kind aloha. She is one of the last elders of MILOLII that are retainers of this special lifestyle. Uncle Willy may be in company as well and it's great when they're both together.

The ocean is beautiful, the sites are amazing and you'll fall in love with this rural community.

Isolated and sketchy ...
Jun 2016 • Family
We stopped by here on a weekday because it was near our rental cottage. We didn't stay long and left right away because it seemed very remote and didn't feel safe, although the scenery was beautiful.

Run down park in isolated location and few amenities, pretty sunsets
Apr 2016 • Solo
This is a poor choice for camping on the Big Island. It is warmer and sunnier here than sites around towards Hilo and the volcano but the long and steep road and scattering of derelict homeless types living in this un-policed and rather run down county park do not make for pleasant camping. If you are able to get a permit, the county and state parks north around Kona and Kohala are all better choices, and the campgrounds at the volcano are also better but colder. There are county campgrounds at Whittington and Punalu'u that have mildly better facilities but much nicer surroundings. There is not a sand beach, just lava tide pools. The fishing is apparently good and the sunsets are very beautiful from here. The town is nice but has no services of any kind and the road is dangerous if wet and rainy. This park has been closed at times recently due to dengue-carrying mosquitoes.
