Great for a stroll, a jog or a swim

Very nice for a morning stroll, walk, jog or swim at the safe protected beach. Great for the sunset, too. And just right into the heart of Honolulu.

Fine white sand, but not very wide. Trees provide some shadow. Tip: visit Kahanamoku Beach instead (see picture).

When I'm in Hawaii and I want to hit the beach for a little bit or all day, Ala Moana is a good pick. It's a large beach with plenty of space for everyone, I've never been there and felt that it was too crowded. The sand isn't the best, but the closer to the water you get, the less... More

We stopped here after a quick lunch at the food court at the mall across the street. Seemed like it maybe wasn't worth the time to walk around. Lots of locals, but several seemed to be transients, camping out near the bus stops. We didn't head down to the beach sand, which is a way from the street - lots... More

Great place to picnic-gets full so claim your place early! No drinking and closes after 8 as it can be dangerous, not the most beautiful beach on Oahu but lovely still and quite central. Nice facilities to for showers and toilets.

This is an amazing shopping center. Be prepared for lots of walking as this center is huge with lots to offer in the way of food and variety of shops.

This is the best local beach in Waikiki, just a little away from the main shopping area, the shopping trollies come to the shopping centre across the road. Big long beach not too crowded good sand underfoot not to rocky. Love it, and you can sit and watch the Japanese newly weds get their photos taken at the water edge.

This beach is just down the road from the main Waikiki beach and much less crowded. No surf as surf and children friendly. If the sand isn't your thing there is lots of grassed areas to relax on

A daily newspaper arrived at our door each morning which was our source for an Annual Greek festival happening down at the Ala Moana Park that we walked to from the Ilikai. We opted for a nice walk of that beach at the same time in preference over walking the Ala Moana shopping center across the street which would have... More
