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 - Write a Review

  • amazing place for picnics, events, fishing, yoga and much more. free parking, public restrooms. handicap paying and wheelchair accessible, picnic tables. lots of kayaking, paddle boarding and 24 hour fishing.

  • Turtle and Crabs. Nice and scenic. Good for a picnic and small exploration but not much more.

  • Beautiful, the local kids running around and screaming profanities took a little away though...

  • Great place to work out or have a family day

  • A lovely little spot for swimming, a picnic, or diving off a great stone ledge with two heights in to what seems like 15-20 feet of water.
