Honoli'i Beach Park

The Best Surf On The Island

Honoli'i Beach Park, nestled along the east coast just north of Hilo on the Big Island, has carved a niche for itself among the local surf enthusiasts. This beach park stands out from the typical surfing spots on the island, as it offers year-round surfing excitement. During the summer months, the waves are gentler, making it an excellent choice for novice surfers. As winter rolls in, experienced surfers flock to Honoli'i for the bigger and more challenging swells. For added safety, a county lifeguard is stationed at the beach to ensure surfer well-being.

Honoli'i Beach is characterized by frequent rip currents and a swiftly deepening nearshore ocean floor, which primarily attracts surfers rather than swimmers. The beach boasts a diverse landscape featuring black sand, coral rubble, rocks, and beach glass. This locale is also a favorite haunt for anglers, along with spectators who often congregate on the road above to admire the surfers' skills.

The shore is a delightful setting for picnics and relaxation, enhanced by the presence of a lush grove of native trees that offer ample shade and seclusion. These trees align themselves alongside a charming small stream, a hidden gem well worth exploring.

At the northern tip of Honoli'i Beach, you'll encounter a pond nestled at the stream's mouth. This pond presents a more swim-friendly environment compared to the rest of the beach; however, it's crucial to note its considerable depth and sudden drop-offs. Whether you're a surfer, swimmer, or simply seeking a serene day by the ocean, Honoli'i Beach Park has something to offer everyone.
