  • 5Matt P. 2 years ago
    As others have mentioned, a hidden gem mostly used by locals and a few tourists. No rocks or coral in the sand. The waves are great for kids.

  • 5Hana U. 2 years ago

  • 5Johnathan B. 2 years ago
    Never packed. Great little beach to go relax and get a quick dip in. Do have jellyfish from time to time.

  • 5Jason D. 2 years ago
    A great beach for relaxing in the sun and gentle water activities. The beach is protected from waves when the water is rougher so that it makes this beach perfect for those who aren't very comfortable in the water, learning to swim, wanting to swim laps (locals use it for swimming laps,) have small children, or want a relaxing experience. The park also gives relief from the sun for a picnic under a tree or relaxing in the grass. L&L Barbeque has a location in the park in case you don't have food. The park is well maintained, however the bathrooms can be sub optimal at times.

  • 5Terry F. 2 years ago
    Beautiful beach on the other side of Waikiki. Less populated too. Great park connected to it.

  • 5Bert D. 2 years ago

  • 5Katelyn W. 2 years ago

  • 5Shown C. 2 years ago
    One of the best beaches near BYU Hawaii

  • 5Mel H. 3 years ago
    Still my number one beach on the North shore. Ample parking, rarely crowded. Only downfall is no access to amenities.

  • 5Wilson M. 1 year ago
    Bike here. Park at mall and use biki or just walk across the street. Able to bring and cook own food here. Public bathrooms are well maintained. I love jogging here in cloudy mornings. Always bring shades, hat, whatever to keep you from getting sunburn.

  • 5im b. 1 year ago
    The park was nice and big with lots of shady trees and open spaces! The beach is perfect and wasn't too busy. Nice and calm waves which were perfect for our 3 year old to play in while wearing her floaty vest. Even our 1 year old loved sitting on the shore and playing in the water. About a mile away from the Ilikai Hotel. Would go back to visit, for sure.

  • 5McKheizi A. 1 year ago
    I'll make this quick and simple as we all gotta move on with our lives. 🤙 Parking is not a problem ✅ Beautiful views ✅ especially the sunset 🤩 You can see the fireworks of the Hilton Hotel. It starts at 7:45pm to 8pm every Friday. Be sure to watch and record. Fireworks are NOT continuously displayed. Beach is sort of rocky. If you have sensitive feet, I suggest wearing water shoes. ✅ Has shower to rinse off sand. ✅

  • 5Hal C. 1 year ago
    Ala Moana Regional Park is a great place to visit in the evening, watch the sunset and enjoy the beach. I witnessed surfing, swimming, volleyball, running, paddle boarding, canoeing, camping, cookouts, birthday parties, sun bathing and homeless sheltering in tents.

  • 5John J. 2 years ago
    Beautiful beach to relax and enjoy nice calm south Oahu waters. Weekends can get extremely busy but still plenty of room to get a spot. From Hawaiian Monk Seals to Sea Turtles, they all pay a visit to the local patrons enjoying the magnificent views. Some portions of the water adjacent to the beach have areas of coral, so walk carefully or bring water shoes. Local L&L Hawaiian Restaurant nearby in case you get hungry.

  • 5Tae G. 1 year ago
    Absolutely breathtaking views and a clean park! The beachfront isn't super busy, and definitely kid friendly. It's the perfect place to watch the sun set on the water.

  • 5Cathy W. 1 year ago
    I love coming here and putting my hammock up and taking a few hour long nap. If you want to take a nap, you have to walk around like going to Magic Island to get to the good trees and away from the tourists. The fishing here is also amazing but, not to eat, just fish to feed the birds.. don't eat out of the Ala Wai

  • 5H. 1 year ago
    I enjoy walking close to the ocean, and the scenery here is awesome! On weekdays there is plenty of parking and it's not very crowded. Walking here is very relaxing and being able to watch the surfers and boats pass and airplanes fly overhead makes you really appreciate living here on this beautiful island!

  • 5Joe K. 11 months ago
    One of the best parks in Honolulu where you can do just about everything from family outings to aerobic exercises. It opens early in the morning until 10:00 pm. It is also a very ideal place to observe a full moon.

  • 5Ruby C W. 1 year ago
    Beautiful beach and park. Perfect for everyone with family or none, with public restroom and shower. This is the perfect beach for those who want to do their swimming laps.

  • 5Kirt K. 3 months ago
    This park is perfect to run walk see the ocean. Or swim in the ocean It's about a mile and a half round trip swim very calm waters. When I swam through a sea turtle popped out in front of me! I really enjoy this park just hanging around It's a great place for lunch or picnics or family gatherings. They allow barbecues where you can make some great food and enjoy the sunset!

  • 5sonny d. 1 month ago
    We stopped by this beach while on vacation and were pleasantly surprised by it. A great family beach with a lagoon nearby. No strong waves to knock over the little ones. Also, have a nice paved path for running, walking and biking. Having Diamond Head in the background makes it very picturesque.

  • 5C. 2 years ago
    Best tourist beach in Hawaii.

  • 5Lucas W. 2 years ago
    A great beach park for da ohana, couples or just to take a stroll by yourself. Swimming, surfing, stand up paddling, snorkeling you can do it all here right in the heart of Honolulu. From Magic Island the views of both Waikiki-Diamond Head, and the Ewa direction are impressive. Stay for the sunsets you won't be disappointed.

  • 5Allan D. 2 years ago

  • 5Barbara S. 2 years ago
    I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express hotel for New Years. Had fun enjoying the beach. And meeting people.

  • 5randy s. 2 years ago
    So much to do with local friends there. Water is mellow and clear. Lots of fish to see. Ala Moana map is just across the street. Restrooms and showers a plenty. Great park!

  • 5Jen L. 2 years ago
    This is a great people watching park. I also enjoyed walking out onto the jetties and seeing the dark purple helmet urchins rock crabs and feral cats that seem to come out of nowhere. Views of Honolulu at night are magical.

  • 5Avery N. 2 years ago
    Very nice park. Our family of five and our dog had a picnic here. There is lots of space to spread out and run around, and lots of places to sit. It wasn't too crowded, and the bathrooms were actually pretty clean. Nice way to spend the day or just hang out in the afternoon.

  • 5Caitlin S. 2 years ago
    This beach is gorgeous especially for experiencing the sunset. The sun looks massive and super close. It's an experience. It's a perfect day night with L & L barbecue right there. It's great for swimming and plenty of room for kids to run around on both grass and sand. No litter and wonderful parking. Great spot overall.

  • 5Gayle g. 2 years ago
    It's a very nice park. Great for swimming especially if you're not a strong swimmer. It's always busy and parking can be a challenge even though there's a lot of parking. Great place to walk.

  • 5annette c. 2 years ago
    Great place to go walking, jogging, swimming, just to sit and relax to watch the sunset. Nice picnic and party areas. The lifeguards are on duty until 530pm Stay safe!

  • 4Gavin B. 7 months ago
    A nice park with plenty of grass and some good paths throughout. A great place to have a picnic or simply to walk or jog through. There is a small sheltered public beach at the end of the park and a couple of food shops within, though only one seemed to be open. The views are spectacular, especially if you walk out to the end of the point. There's a warning sign which you can easily go past but proceed with caution as the rocks can be wet and slippery and a rogue wave can appear at any time. If you keep within the marked areas, the park is very safe for little kids and the paths provide great bike riding opportunities. Disabled access is very good.

  • 4B. 1 year ago
    Nice park and beach but rocky in the water. Has a busy feel being literally in the middle of Honolulu. Good for Sunsets. Very convenient location but otherwise there are many better beaches on Oahu. And watch out for those ridiculous sudden traffic jams Oahu is so prone to. Ive waited 20 min to go from Magic Island parking lot to the actual park exit...a distance of maybe a 1/8 mile.. Someone needs to seriously investigate Oahu's road construction tyranny/mafia. 'Beyond unnecessary road repairs' combined with a traffic light system intentionally running on early 1970s tech, are the primary culprits behind Oahu's traffic woes.

  • 4Bria R. 5 months ago
    Beautiful park, kayak rentals, picnic benches, grills and an actual parking lot. Nice grassy, shady areas and plenty of sandy beach areas. Right across the street from the mall and tons of restaurants. Quite a bit of homeless people and trash, but a nice park nonetheless.

  • 4James N Gina K. 1 year ago
    A fun park with a nice beach area. Great for the kids as this is more calm waters. Bring the snorkeling gear. You may possibly see some Green Sea Turtles. A nice more relaxing atmosphere if you're looking to get away from the big crowds

  • 4Ipo C. 2 years ago
    Great place to walk, masked up of course! Always nice to walk along the ocean in paradise, such that it is presently!

  • 4Kemal D. 1 year ago
    If you can walk it is best, finding parking is almost impossible. Its in the city center, so if not planning to drive towards north shore, its a good option to relax. There are rocky portions on the beach. So be careful in the water.

  • 4Darlene j. 1 year ago
    11/9/21.While vacationing in Hawaii taking the 42 bus! I found Ala Moana Mall and the park is directly across the street. It has plenty of space to share! The grass area was being used for exercise, sport and picnics! The sand relaxed readers, bathers and children learning stand on their surfing board. The gentle waves of the surf soothes you into deep exhales.

    (Translated by Google) Good place for walking and sports, not many people (Original) 散步運動的好地方,人不會很多

    Beautiful local beach great for swimming. Small unpaved parking lot. I didn't see any restrooms. Big grassy area perfect for games. Wetland area for kids to explore.

  • 4Boramey K. 2 years ago
    Amazing view but other beaches in Honolulu are much nicer, just need to drive a little further out.

  • 4Luisa Cassidy T. 2 years ago
    Good luck on parking, but if you do get parking this is a great place to do water exercises.

  • 4Alvin K. 2 years ago
    great place to exercise and walk around.

  • 4Brian S. 2 years ago
    First time there today. It was a nice place to set up but I'd like to see the people who use it most often take better care of the beach.

  • 4mike d. 2 years ago
    This like every beach listed on oahu's beaches to consider going to was phenomenal did not have any issues not too many people around and if there were social distancing and masking was adhered to great s urf great Sand would highly recommend
