Leleiwi Beach Park

Leleiwi Beach Park
Leleiwi Beach Park - standing on the Keaukaha coastline and just 6 km / 4 miles to the south of downtown Hilo, comprising two neighboring rocky beaches, along with a series of secluded bays and lagoons. Leleiwi Park is each to reach from Kalanianaole Avenue, although is not generally considered as being suitable for swimming
 
Leleiwi Beach Park is at the eastern end of Hilo, adjacent to Richardson's Ocean Center. An abundance of marine life makes this a popular spot for both fishing and snorkeling. Leleiwi has a rocky shoreline and tall palm trees surround shallow ocean pools fed by fresh water springs.  It’s an ideal spot for families; picnic tables and pavilions are provided. 

If you are a SCUBA diver, you will enjoy a shore dive at Leleiwi.  There are plenty of coral and sea turtles to see in the water here.  Be careful, when the sea is stormy, the entry and exit can be treacherous.

Surfing at Leleiwi Beach ParkLeleiwi Beach Park and Richardson's Beach are located adjacent to each other.  We suggest you try to snorkel both locations in the same day.  Start the morning at Leleiwi, bring a picnic lunch and drinks.  After snorkeling at Leleiwi, enjoy a relaxing lunch in the pavilion and then head down to Richardson's for the afternoon.
