“Locals frequent this beach, Hawaii 5-0 films here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a great beach at the West end of Waikiki, directly across the street from the largest outdoor mall in the country. You'll often find locals here on family outings. Not the best for surfing but great for swimming and stand up paddle boarding. Plenty of grassy areas as well. Many people walk this park as it's quite long and the views are lovely.

“Convenient to Waikiki, lots of activities available”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a great park for viewing boats, walking a little, getting paddle board or surf lessons, hanging out. It is as popular with locals as with tourists. Lots of people swim at the beach, but I recommend going to other beaches. This one never looks clean enough to me. Due to the shape of the bay, the water doesn't get swept out to see well enough, and there's lots of city drainage into the bay. No sewage, but I don't like drainage that sticks around.

“Great parking.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Crowded. Found families sleeping early in the morning in the park. The beaches are kept clean, though.

“Beautiful views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

This was a great scenic beach to visit. We got to see the marina where Gillian's Island was filmed. It's right across from the Ala Moana mall. There was an American Cancer Relay for Life going on while we were there so it was pretty crowded.

“Big Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

It's easy to miss this park becasue you have to look the other way from the Ala Moana Shopping Center. Still, it's a nice place to visit and it is next to the ocean.
