I found some information about the port of Hilo. No Beaches in walking distance. According to my research the closest beach (2.5 miles) is Richardson Ocean Park (black sand beach) adjacent to this beach is Leleiwi Beach Park.These beaches are suppose to be good for snorkeling. Here is a link to the visitor's bureau for the Big Island and the beaches.
Richardson Ocean Center/Leleiwi Beach Park - Hawaii Beaches - Hawaii's Island of Adventure
Be careful with the currents the beaches on the Pacific ocean can have strong currents at times. I hope that helps.
