Yes... u can see Turtles along the SHORE. They are so use with Humans and they couldnt be bothered. but be mindful not to be to close to them (as indicated by the signs).

It was a lovely rocky beach... DUN EXPECT white sandy beaches though. I see many SNORKLERS too..

Great black-sand beach with shallow areas for kids, occasional sea turtles there, deep-water swimming and snorkling, changing areas and showers in a beautiful setting. Family friendly area but I wish there were benches or tables near the beach area.

Didn't swim here, but came several times to picnic. Saw lots of turtles. The kids loved exploring around here. Not enough picnic tables at peak times though

We loved this quaint beach park with natural springs and tide pools right in Hilo. The swimming was safe for kids and we saw turtles come in very close.
