It's kind of dirty and scattered with homeless people, there are much better places to be seen around the area

We really had a good time on the tours and would recommend trying all of them if you can afford it. But if not Magic Island was a nice site to see

Family oriented, fun beach park. The area offers two beaches with lifeguards well laid out for families with children. Often there are events happening in the area; parking in fairly good. No fees.

Great place for picnics and enjoying the beach with little ones. Go early to get easy parking and cooler temperatures. That sun will scorch. Still, watch your kids and your stuff! Looks friendly, usually is friendly, but there is still crime even in paradise.

if you stay long enough to watch a sunset, this is an ideal place to do it. lots of people sit along the wall, relax talk story and wait..... very peaceful while watching the surfers as well

This is a very nic ebeach with a long walk way that goes on and on. While waiting for my trolley at Ala Moana, I went here and felt refreched. Big parkland for picnicing, and of course, a lovely shoreline with a long bend.

Water is calm and warm and safe for kids to enjoy on their own. We went there in evening at 5 and enjoyed the sunset. Got few very beautiful pictures too.
