Beaches on the East Side of the Big Island

east side beaches

West Hawaii has its sandy white beaches, but East Hawaii has its blue lagoons and tidepools for swimming! We take you to four of Hilo’s beaches located about 10 minutes out of the city center. We rode our bikes to all the beach parks, which saves you from finding parking, if you go.
Here are the parks in the video and more info about each one:
1. Lehia Park - (You can bring your dogs!)
2. Carlsmith Beach Park-
3. Onekahakaha Beach Park-
4. Richardson Beach Park-

If you are considering a move to Hawaii, we offer a complimentary matchmaking service for Realtors and mortgage professionals on all the islands! Send us a note at
