Richardson Beach Park - Review
The only black sand beach in all of Hilo, Richardson Beach Park is a great place to have some fun in the water. The natural seawalls create tide pools and keep the water calm, making it perfect for even children. Thus, it is best for family picnics. The most popular activity at the beach is snorkelling, especially during summers. There are many tropical fishes and corals that you can observe here. Other than that, you can also indulge in swimming, surfing and kayaking. And if luck is on your side, you may even experience a rare sighting of a green sea turtle.

Richardson Beach Park, Hilo Reviews
Beautiful spot for snorkeling and soaking up the sun on a black sand beach. Vibrant and healthy coral and reef structure with hundreds of tropical fish. Water is clear and typically can see 60 feet straight down. Turtles often sun themselves on the beach or in the tide pools. There is a lifeguard station here during daylight hours and places to grill. Enough trees on the beach for shade on hot days or to hook up your hammock.
Lots of fish but the water is clear enough to see maybe 20 feet or so. Not crowded so that was nice. For the water definitely use water shoes, there's lots of rocks and sea urchin!
Nice property. Beautiful octopus tree. The black sand is really pretty along with the rocks.
Nice black sand beach. Head easy stairway entry for scuba or snorkeling. Also very beautiful pools to explore by foot, if you have water shoes.
If you want to see turtles on Hawaii with very little effort in amazing natural scenery, this is the place to do it. Walk slowly and carefully, be quiet and give them distance, and they will be active around you. Follow the signs and READ THEM. Be respectful, take pictures and watch them in their home, but let them be. They are a protected species and if you break the rules you ruin everyone else's day, and you will face the consequences. (In case you don't notice walking in, YOU ARE BEING WATCHED) We didn't do it, but it looks like lots of people enjoy paddle boarding and snorkelling here s well.
