The sunset photo looks great. I visited in the morning but now wish I had seen the sunset. Large grassed area. Lots happening in this park but it is so big it didn't appear crowded. There were walkers, joggers, cyclists, a group doing tai chi, a meditation group, a tent offering water baptism, yoga group, lots of family / community... More

Magic Island is really land fill extending from the existing Ala Moana Park. You park your car and head toward the ocean and you are rewarded by views of popular surf breaks on both the east (Diamond Head) or west (Ewa) sides. When the south swells are large, you can watch surfers catching waves. Ala Wai Yacht Harbor is just... More

It does get a little crowded but the area is huge so it's great to be at just to relax. I like the idea of having a grassy areas right by the beach. There is a path for joggers and large grassy areas just for tossing the football around. Trees offer shades if you are not too fond of the... More

My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary and renewed our wedding vows on the beach at Magic Island in Ala Moana Park. This was a beautiful setting with memories that will be everlasting

Found this beach a few years ago and love visiting it. Never seen this beach busy & would like to keep it a secret!!!!!! It is very safe and there is a lifeguard there. There are no food or drinks facilities so take your own. Just love it here.

We like this beach because it is close to town but rarely heavily occupied. I'm not a strong swimmer so the calmer waters is more to my liking. The water is warm. Beach is groomed and sandy. A good beach for small children. Showers and restrooms are nearby. Lots of parking but the lot is shared with Ala Moana Beach... More

If you have small children, Magic Island beach is one of the best place to visit. It's a man-made beach and blocked so big waves will not come in. Good place to practice snorkeling, too.
