Coconut Island - Review
Located in Hilo Bay, this small island can be accessed only via a pedestrian footbridge from Liliuokalani Gardens. Its Hawaiian name Moku Ola means “Island of Life”, since the waters of the island was known to have healing powers. It was believed that the waters could cure any sick person if he swam around one of the rocks at the eastern inlet of the island. There is a 15-foot stone tower, which is a remnant of the past, which is popular spot amongst the locals to jump into the ocean from.

Coconut Island, Hilo Reviews
Great place to relax and take a load off. Plus they got a tower to jump off of. Completely safe for people of all ages.
This is a nice quiet park. No play structure but there are areas to picnic. Views of Hilo are great without having to be on a boat. Waves crashing against the wall are fun to watch.
Very nice place. If you’re lucky you can see turtles swimming around.
Swim, sit on the sand, watch all the fun in a bueatiful place
Beautiful place for a walk. We accidentally drove into the area and immediately knew we had to park and look around more.
