Hilo After Dark With Big Island Ghost Tours

Hawaii Ghost Tours

We decided on the Hilo After Dark Tour as we were spending a portion of our time on this side of the island. The night of our tour, it was dark and overcast adding to the mystery and fascination of this unique walking tour.

Legend has it that the Hawaiian Islands, and in particular the Big Island, are very well known globally for their supernatural circumstances. Hawaiians of old were believed to be very spiritual and superstitious, adding to the intrigue and mystery surrounding the Hawaiian Islands today.

“Big Island Ghost Tours® offers guided tours to some of Hawaii’s most supernatural sites for visitors to experience and learn about the ancient Hawaiian connection to the supernatural & the afterlife. We specialize in Hawaii’s haunted & supernatural, both past and present.”

After gathering at a predetermined location and meeting with our guide for the night, we were then instructed to download some very peculiar and ghostly apps onto our phones, and then we were on our way!

Liliuokalani Gardens Hilo Hawaii

Our first destination had us entering Liliuokalani Park and Japanese Gardens in the pitch dark, where our guide filled us in on the history of this very mysterious and historical park down by Hilo Bay, and which is also located next to enchanted Coconut Island.

Be prepared for your cell phone apps to light up and make some positive and mysterious readings as you walk through the park and around its historic monuments. 🙂

Banyan Tree Drive

Dating back to 1933, the Hilo Parks commission began having celebrities and other influential individuals who, when visiting the island, would have the distinct honor of planting one of these beautiful trees and having a plaque in their name placed alongside.

As we made down the street and walking alongside these now fully mature Banyan Trees, our informative guide explained the history of these Banyans and their legendary significance to many believers of the supernatural on the island.  There are things you simply must not do when walking among these tall timbers!

I did note some very more popular names on the placards such as; Babe Ruth and Emilia Earhart, Richard Nixon and many more.

Continuing to make our way down Banyan Drive, our informative guide explained some of the unusual occurrences and unnatural appearances that have occurred over the years in a few of the older historic buildings on this once very popular street in Hilo.

Coconut Island (Mokuola)

Coconut Island Hilo Hawaii

Located in Hilo Bay and just steps from Liliuokalani Park, this ancient island is filled with mystery, ancient spiritual beliefs and so much more. Once known as the healing island, it was frequented by many to rid themselves of their sins and illnesses among other things.

It was the site of an Ancient Temple which was dedicated solely to healing.

Big Island Ghost Tours Ghost Eyes

Throughout the islands of Hawaii, legend tells a story of the ghostly apparitions of a band of beings or warrior spirits that roam and have been seen guarding the bridge leading across to Coconut Island here in Hilo. 

Our guide made it clear to us that this ghostly procession must never be interrupted and you also must never make eye contact with them, or you may succumb to their powers!

You many never know who’s looking at you! 🙁
