The northeastern side of the island of Hawaii


Located on the northeastern side of the island of Hawaii, Hilo offers breathtaking natural beauty plus all the amenities of a vibrant town. A busy farming and fishing area in early times, Hilo evolved into a commercial center in the 1800s. Downtown Hilo was built around its crescent-shaped bay and became the seat of county government. Today, downtown Hilo is a charming town offering museums, art galleries, shops, and restaurants. Across from historic Hilo Bay and nestled among the farmer’s and flower markets, Tina’s Garden is in the perfect location when you’re out and about exploring Hilo Town.
