Magic Island is used in the show "Hawaii 5-0" and is popular for events in Waikiki. But it's just a park next to Ala Moana Beach. It's a nice family place: water is mostly shallow and gentle at the beach, lost of shade in the park. We take our grandchildren here. Be cautious of the homeless in the area across... More

This park is very family friendly. It's right in front of the Ala Moana Beach. It's really nice to have a family & friends BBQ. Very relaxing. Only thing is, the parking can be very full and hectic.

This is a MUST see. The atmosphere and the sunset of this amazing site is breathtaking. The sailboats the people, the water the views, don't miss this opportunity

Magic Island is a great metropolitan green space! If you are looking to swim, picnic or have a birthday party this is a great place for you. Generally there is plenty of parking, but it can be hard to find spots during holidays and on weekends. The view from the park is quite amazing. You will have a direct view... More

WE went to walk on Magic Island and were lucky enough to see the fireworks on Friday night that the Hilton Hawaiian Village puts on each week.

A beautiful area to walk or jog around. Has a sidewalk that goes around it. Have to go early for parking as Ala Moana Beach Park gets full fast. The beach is so nice.

Such a beautiful, calm beach where many locals come to swim. The park area itself is also very nice with a lot of picnic benches and plenty of trees for everyone to seat under. Everywhere you look , there is a great view of the ocean. On Friday nights the crowd gathers to enjoy the fireworks from Hilton Hawaiian Village... More

Busy little patch of "beach/park" down in the heart of Honolulu near the Ala Moana mall...this place is great for BBQs, there are fireworks that are set off near by every Friday (so great place to hang out in the evenings if you are visiting), and there are many fitness classes (including bootcamps, yoga etc) that take place down there...
