“Beautiful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

The local residents have taken the time to create a park with beautiful plants and trees. Amazing views of sweeping trees, ocean and river with a bridge crossing the river. Great surf or boogie board spot. There's a spot for beginners to surf, and a helpful bulletin board with surf etiquette. Picnic benches available and lots of shade or sun. Bring sturdy shoes as the beach is rocky.

This is the local Hilo surf spot. Everyday you will see da kama'aina catching mean waves! Come bring your board and get in the water. Surf all day.Body board , long board , paddle board, short board, I've even seen a kid body surf with a McDonald's tray!

“A surfer's delight ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

Go early, parking is a challenge. Many locals surf here. Many steps to descend but a lovely place to relax and play. Watch the young ones (crazy waves)and watch your step, recommend water shoes (Hilo has rocky beaches). Showers, bathroom, picnic, no sand to sunbathe, but plenty of grassy areas to lay out. If tide is low, there is a small patch of black sand beach to the extreme left of the park to play.

“Grassy spots and great view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

The beach is largely rocky with a grassy patch behind. We went on a Sunday and it was busy with locals. Lots of folk surfing & boogie boarding. a little too rough to swim when we were there and wasn't great for the kids but it was fun to watch the surfers and it made a nice change to sit on grass rather than rock or sand!! There are lifeguards on duty and public conveniences.
