Fodor's Review

Safe swimming, proximity to downtown Hilo, and a freshwater-fed swimming hole called the Ice Pond that flows into the backwaters of Hilo Bay are the enticements of this cove. No, there really isn't ice in the swimming hole; it just feels that way on a hot sultry day. The large pond, between Hilo Seaside Hotel and the Ponds Hilo Restaurant, is a favorite of local kids, who enjoy jumping into and frolicking in the chilly fresh- and saltwater mix. The water is usually calm. Amenities: parking (no fee); showers. Best for: swimming.
