Great family beach

Less crowded alternative to Waikiki Beach. There's a nice park, and a lagoon that is great for kids or anyone who wants to swim in calm waters.

Magic Island has it all. It has beautiful scenery, swimming, place to run, walk or just sit and enjoy. Easy access by bus and plenty of parking is available.

Conveniently located across Ala Moana Shopping Center. Its also next to Ala Moana Beach Park. Great place to just hang out away from the tourist crowd of Waikiki. There are lots of trees for shade here. Plenty of park benches and picnic tables to watch the swimmers, surfers, and the sunset, so make sure to bring your camera. Its great... More

A must do place when in Ohau. A great place to meet people and the Fire Dance on the Thursday nights is well worth seeing Ed.

Great place to bring the family to BBQ and swim. Downfalls - it's always so crowded and parking fills up fast. Suggestion is to be dropped off with your "stuff", park at the mall, and walk to the park.

Waikiki is a beautiful place to visit. In,ivied there for 6 years and revisited. Magic island is a great location across from the alamoana mall to enjoy the weather and on Friday nights there is a fabulous fire works display.

You can take swimmers of all ages, there's a small lagoon area that small kids can swim at without being expose to the open sea. Lots of trees for shade and picnic under. Great place for walking around in the afternoon. Good place to watch the sunset.

We walked around the perimeter on the asphalt pathway. The surf on the south shore today was 6-10 feet. There is protected water for swimming, in fact, a group of people on paddle boards were doing yoga. There is ample parking. There were at least 3 weddings in progress and what appeared to be a fashion shoot. As we approached... More
