COCONUT ISLAND (MOKU OLA) IN HILO
Moku ola (Coconut Island) is an island in Hilo bay connected to the mainland by a 250 ft (75 meters) bridge.
The island has a few small beaches and a large grassy area with several picnic tables. It’s a popular spot for locals to hang out and teenagers to jump off a 20 foot tower into the water below.
Moku ola (Coconut Island) is right next to the Queen Liliuokalani Gardens so you can easily visit both at the same time. Read more about visiting the Queen Liliuokalani Gardens here.
There are clean restrooms on the island and picnic tables available for use.
While there are two sandy, sheltered beaches on the island suitable for swimming and tide pools for exploring, the water the bay is unfortunately often murky so Coconut Island is not a good place to go snorkeling.
Moku ola (Coconut Island) is a great place to look back at downtown Hilo for a few photos.
Set your navigation to 77 Keliipio Pl, Hilo HI 96720 for an address. There is a small parking lot just before the bridge to leave your car.
