A local favorite, to have some fun in the sun. Crystal blue brackish water, where the warm ocean salt water mixes with the fresh spring water. Great place to swim, snorkel, bask in the sun and picnic. Watch huge honus(turtles) cruz a long side you as you play in the water.

A wonderful beach that provides an excellent opportunity to view some turtles while you swim. Remember to keep your distance and enjoy from a distance. There are fresh water streams flowing into the ocean here, so there may be cool currents. It can be best enjoyed during week days as it is a…

Surf Spot
“Less than a mile from Carlsmith is the majestic Richardson Beach Park, a black sand gem with stunning views of Hilo Bay, lots of space to lounge in the sun or picnic under the trees, and some of the best snorkeling on the east side of the Big Island. Like Carlsmith, this water is also fed by cool springs so bring a rash guard or long-sleeved shirt to full enjoy the delights this beautiful beach has to offer! Easy access to the water from two points with handrails. There are also toilets, showers and changing rooms on-site. Parking can get tricky when it’s busy so get there early!”

Natural Feature
“A short drive from downtown Hilo, Rainbow Falls is an 80 ft. waterfall on the Wailuku river cascading over a lava cave that, according to legend, is home to Hina, the ancient goddess of the moon. The Falls gets it's name from rainbows that form in the droplets that surround the falling water, best viewed when the sun is to your back (in the morning). From the falls, you can follow the stairway to heaven up to a second lookout point and wander into the shade of huge banyan trees that have grown to form one enormous and impressive structure, home to many native birds.”

Point of Interest
“For decades, the boat ramp and beautiful surf break in Pohoiki Bay have been an iconic spot in the Puna area. Over the summer of 2018 locals and visitors alike watched with trepidation as the lava crept closer to the bay and threatened to engulf the area. When the eruption subsided, strong currents swept tons of newly formed sand from down the coast into the bay, creating the island’s newest black sand beach and warm water lagoon in front of the old boat ramp. A short walk from the water will take you to the edges of the 2018 lava flow. Eerie and wondrous, Pohoiki is a sight to behold. Swimming is currently not advised.”
