Coconut Island (Moku Ola) and Queen Liliuokalani Park

December 3, 2008

 

 A little jewel in Hilo Bay, Moku Ola is connected by a footbridge to Banyan Drive & the Queen’s Gardens.  015006016                                                                     Moku Ola was considered a place of refuge in old Hawaii.  Today it is a beautiful park across from the hotels of Hilo.
