Owner description: Beach park and memorial to 1946 Tsunami victims.
Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

After renting a car for the week, we decided to drive the Hamakua coast. We started at Waipi’o lookout, then continued along the coast until we got to this sacred park dedicated to the victims of the 1946 tsunami. There are restrooms, picnic areas, shaded areas; the ocean splashing onto the rocks is awesome! There is a little area where you can walk on the rocks to a small beach area, but no swimming. There is a monument dedicated to those lost lives . Peaceful & gorgeous...spent an hour relaxing there, before continuing to Hilo!

The only place we saw folks in the water was on the boat ramp, otherwise you have not access to the water. There is a large field were folks were playing and since it was a holiday weekend, there were tents and camping in various locations. No big deal.

Cute place if you are passing by this road, make a good stop to eat your lunch if you have one. If not, don’t go specifically for that.

Many black lava rocks around the water, not suitable for bathing.

We came here in the late afternoon and the ocean was splashing up on the rocks. We didn’t see any safe place where one could enter the ocean and not get hit against the rocks. There were a number of kids, with their parent watching, playing in the boat launch ramp, but that didn’t look too safe either. So we just left. Maybe on a calm day, at low tide, this beach may have been better. I can at least say it was a nice scenic drive to the beach and the waves splashing against the black rocks were beautiful.

Stopped here for a picnic lunch. Enjoyed listening to the waves crash against the rocks. Surprisingly blue waters for as much as the water churns here.
