Fodor's Review

Shallow, rock-wall-enclosed tide pools and an adjacent grassy picnic area make this park a favorite among Hilo families with small children. The protected pools are great places to look for Hawaiian marine life like sea urchins and anemones. There isn't much white sand, but access to the water is easy. The water is usually rough beyond the line of large boulders protecting the inner tide pools, so be careful if the surf is high. This beach gets crowded on weekends. Amenities: lifeguards (weekends, holidays, and summer only); parking (no fee); showers; toilets. Best for: swimming.

Keiki Approved

Great place to take the keiki but even fun to visit if you don't have kids as it's just a fun and beautiful beach park to hang out at: https://lookintohawaii.com/hawaii/32694/onekahakaha-beach-park-beach-big-island-hilo-hi
