The views here are absolutely wonderful. You can get really close to the water and also see waves crash up on the rocks. This is a great place to take photos.

This place did not feel safe to visit. Lot's of homeless people camping out here and an overall creepy vibe that did not feel safe. I would not recommend bringing children here or female solo travelers.

The waves and ocean are magical. The colors of the ocean were beautiful. It's a fun place to walk around and take pictures. I definitely recommend.

This is a lovely retreat for the day or overnight camping. There are ample car/tent pads, trees for hammocks, and fire pits. Sites are all within reach of the water, outdoor shower, and toilet facilities. These were cleaned each day.
There are on-site historical sites, plants galore, and oh those crashing waves. The beach is rocky but traversable. I found places to snorkel at low tide when the currents were not so strong. I was rewarded with nudibranchs, a baby snowflake eel, and gobies. Don't miss this gem.

This was an amazing beach! I recommend future travelers to come and enjoy! It was amazing seeing the waves crashing on the rocks and being pretty intense

Nice place to have a picnic, but it was very windy while we were there. Crashing waves were awesome, though. We got some great pictures and video. Worth the short drive from the main highway.

It was a great day and the views were amazing! There’s a nice open park on the water. The waves were moderate but the shore was very rocky and I probably wouldn’t recommend this as a swimming spot

I stopped here with my family on the way to Waipio Valley from Hilo and glad we stopped. The ocean waves crashing on the rocks, the palm trees, and the gigantic dog roaming the grounds all made this place one of my favorites. There was a campground here and facilities. I am not sure if you can swim here, the water looked rough but it was great to walk around and enjoy the views.

We happened upon this lovely park on our way from Hilo to Waimea. The drive down to the beach at sea level is slow and windy so just take your time. Once you get down to the beach it is a perfect place to relax and unwind with many shady spots. This area was once a splendid fishing village, but it has a tragic history that is respectively immoralized in the park. In 1946 after an earthquake in Alaska, tsunami waves hit this area as well as Hilo. In this location alone, 21 school children and 3 teachers lost their lives. It is so stricking to read about this at the site seeing the area where it all happened.
