Hilo Bayfront Beach Closing to Motorized Vehicles Starting Friday

The Hawai‘i County Department of Parks and Recreation announces that it will close Hilo Bayfront Beach to all motorized vehicles starting the morning of Friday, September 25. All vehicles must be parked within designated parking stalls.

Hilo BayfrontSigns have been installed and boulders have been placed adjacent to the beach area to prevent vehicle access and make conditions safer for park patrons.  Keeping vehicles off the beach will also protect marine life from hazardous fluids that can leak from vehicles.

The Department of Parks and Recreation thanks park patrons and the general public for understanding the need to improve safety for users of Hilo Bayfront Beach and to protect the marine environment. The Department also reminds park users that dogs and overnight camping are not allowed at Hilo Bayfront Beach Park.
