James Kealoha Beach Park is named after the first Lieutenant Governor of Hawaii. It's also known as 4 Mile Beach because it is 4 miles away from the Hilo post office.

This is a pretty beach park with some beautiful ocean views but there is no sandy beach here. There are some neat tide pools and shallow areas that are protected from the open ocean.

Swimming isn't recommended because of the strong currents around here. This is a popular locals hang out as well. It does have showers, bathrooms, and picnic tables. You can probably find a better place to hang out for the day, like Carlsmith Beach Park which is right next door.
