Onekahakaha Beach Park

Where: South Hilo, island of Hawaii

Located just east of the Hilo Airport, Onekahakaha Beach is a favorite with keiki (children). This small, shallow, sand-bottomed ocean pool is one of the safest swimming areas along the Hilo coast, with tide pools and inlets. Although there’s no actual beach, the park is perfect for play, picnics and lovely views of Hilo Bay.  It’s also a great locale for family snorkeling.

Please note: Hawaii's ocean and beach conditions are as unique as the islands themselves. Visit HIOCEANSAFETY.COM which constantly monitors the surf, wind, and reports from public safety officials that directly affect the conditions for safety of Hawaiian beaches. Use the hazard signs on HIOCEANSAFETY.COM as well to quickly assess conditions and help you find the appropriate beach for your visit.
