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...

Go about an hour before sundown on a Friday, and take some supper and a jacket. Lots of families out there with their picnics, and a lovely atmosphere. Stay until 7:45 and you can see a pretty remarkable fireworks show to the east. We met friends that have been coming there from the windward side, every Friday night for the... More

I always enjoyed taking a brisk walk or a quick run around Ala Moana Park and Magic Island. Especially at Sunrise or at Sunset. Spectacular views.

This is my husbands favorite place on oahu. It is just a short hike from Waikiki but it is so beautiful and very uncrowded as compared to Waikiki. We love this spot so much that we decided to get remarried here in a genuine hawaiian wedding ceremony.

This beach park, is a very nice place to spend some time or day, relaxing and enjoying the outdoor environment. The beach is sandy, and the water is calm in the lagoon area. There is grassy areas to picnic, and shade trees to get out of the heat of the sun if you wish to do so. There is free... More

Yes there are plenty of homeless people, but I would have to call them the smartest homeless people I know because the sunsets here are amazing. The park fills up just before sunset and there is a slow exit, which reminded me a bit of leaving a big sporting event or 4th of July fireworks show... Worth a visit, and... More
