About Honolii Beach Park on Hilo & East Island, Hawaii

Honoli’i Beach Park is a popular surf spot located a couple miles north of Hilo. The beach at Honoli’i forms a spit at the mouth of Honolii Stream creating a swimming area that is protected from the waves. Lifeguards are on hand every day to watch over the ocean side of the beach which is often full of surfers and boogie boarders.

Honolii Beach is a mix of sand and smooth rocks both big and small. Driftwood gathers on the back of the beach, but there’s a lot of space to set out towels or beach chairs to watch the surf. You’ll also find abundant lawn space surrounded by trees of various varieties.

To find Honolii Beach Park, drive north from Hilo on the Belt Road (Hwy 19) and turn right onto Nahala Street. Then turn left at the T intersection onto Kahoa Street which leads to the park in a short distance (no parking lot). If it’s a busy day you should take the first parking spot along the road shoulder that you can find. This road is narrow so it’s kind of a one-way street and turning around is difficult too.
