It was a little intimidating at first. Lots of rocks and Black Volcanic sand. Mostly a 'locals' area. However, snorkelling was excellent, complete with sea turtles.

This is a good little beach. There are lifeguards, places to change, and bathrooms. The snorkeling here is pretty good too.

This was the last place our guide took us. It was late afternooon and there were sea turtles everywhere in the water eating algae off the rocks. There is also some beautiful scenery here too. Close to the town of Hilo,so if you are near there you need to go have a look !!

This was the first place I went in Hilo when I visited and WOW. The first time I put my face in the water with a snorkel on, there was a turtle just a few feet away! Sometimes a bit crowded with locals and tourists, but a big park and nice place to swim. Great if you want to snorkel, but are a bit of a "chicken".
