You'll find plenty of places to visit near Hilo: Kehena Black Sand Beach (in Pahoa) and Devastation Trail (in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park). The adventure continues: admire the majestic nature at Akaka Falls State Park, enjoy the sand and surf at Kolekole Beach Park, admire the sheer force of Rainbow Falls, and contemplate the waterfront views at Wailuku River State Park.
