Where the locals go

Quiet and shallow waters. Many locals chilling. Plenty of room. Good place to paddle surf. I would choose this before waikiki beach any day.

Not the same vibe as Waikiki, but if you like wide open space, and being able to enjoy it with friends and family, there is plenty to keep you occupied, and Ala Moana shopping centre across the road!

This is park where locals seem to outnumber tourists. The water here is calm, perfect for families with wee kids to play in. We rent a paddle board from a local shop and kids spent several hours playing with it in the water. There were some locals setting up BBQ stands around the park and playing loud music. There were...

I know this homeless issue is something that Honolulu is trying to focus on but REALLY? You go to a well known beach park right when you really get into town and you see tons of homeless tents. I feel very sorry for these people are EVERYWHERE. Lining sidewalks of closed businesses in Honolulu along Nimitz Hwy.. A car dealer... More

Whenever we are in this area this place offers the perfect place to sit and relax and to enjoy the perfect place to view the ocean and just relax. Great place to walk and enjoy the views.

Got a frozen drink and sat on the grass chilling out and enjoying our first day at Waikiki - lots of families having picnics there too.

I went here 3 times during the week (Stuck in Waikiki without a car and hating the crowded main beach.) It was cute quite and really accessible. There aren't waves, so no need to bring the board. The view (minus the construction) is really beautiful. It's across the street from the Ala Moana Mall as well.

A nice beach near the market place. Some stores like Sears etc. are located near the beach. It is a sort of city centre with some evening music being played in the market.

It was a beautiful beach, bit crowded though.. Its close to the airport. Its good to visit if your connecting flight from Hawaii has a couple of hours layover.
