“It is awesme....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Ever since I was a little girl growing up in Hawaii, this has always been my favorite beach. I went to Hawaii, in April of 2013; to take care of my mother. My mother had been suffering from low glucose level for some time. Therefore it was an emergency trip. I only stayed in Honolulu, for six days. I wish that it would have been a longer stay. My mother acted as if she did not need my help, so I escaped to Magic Island every chance that I had. I have not been back to Hawaii, since 1993 until April of 2013. It was an awesome visit.. I will do it again very soon. It was well worth the trip... I will always love you, Hawaii and you will forever be in my heart and soul.. You are my Island, my Hawaii Nei. Aloha

“Magic Island offers best vantage for Diamond Head Pix”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Lovely family park is best for picture taking of Diamond Head. In addition, enjoy a picnic or swimming at the white beach.

“Quiet place in Honolulu where locals go for Barbeques and just to chill or exercise..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Remember beginning of Hawaii Five o? The wave? The balcony? Those shots were taken from Magic Island. The Wave is a few hundred feet off the East seaward end of Magic Island (Which is not really an Island) a man made peninsula which is part of the Channel into the Alawai Canal and the Yacht Clubs. The Balcony is part of the Ilikai Hotel, the white hotel with blue trim, behind the Hawaii Yacht Club.
Magic island has its own little known lagoon at the southern seaward end, On the West side, is Ala Moana Beach Park Beach. Actually I think Magic Island is Part of Ala Moana Beach Park.

“Spectacular colours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Magic Island is my favourite place for an afternoon stroll in Honolulu. You can watch the locals work out or have picnics, and there's always at least 1 couple of newlyweds taking pictures. It's peaceful and a great escape from all the tourists in Waikiki. The small lagoon beach is calm and clear, great for kids. The rock walls offer a great view. The best part are the colours! Red earth and turquoise water... Immensely beautiful.
