It's the perfect place to come to when you want a quiet retreat from the busy end of town. To see the locals do their thing, watch numerous Japanese couples have their wedding photos taken, to just float in the calm warm water, or take a dip after you've had a game of tennis on the nearby courts, it's a...

The beach park could have a lot to offer, but the number of homeless in the park, to me, is a bit disconcerting. Families with kids may not appreciate it.

The park has been significantly cleaned up since summer of 2015 and I was thrilled to see this. It was clean, beautiful and safe again. I was thrilled to see the beauty restored to this area. There is still quite a bit of construction at the mall across the street but that's ok the park is great again!

We found this on our last day in Oahu and if we had found it at the beginning I think we wouldn't have gone anywhere else. No crowds, nice swimming and the food at the snack bar was the best priced, most delicious food that we had our whole time ont he island.

We just wanted to hang at a beach for alittle while after our Catamaran outing , so Alo MOana was a convenient location. The water if not very clear, so it was not good for snorkeling. If you actually want to SWIM, this is the best location I found on my whole trip, as you can swim parallel to the... More

We enjoyed swimming in the ocean and relaxing on the sand. Fairly busy but not as busy as Waikiki Beach proper.

A track winds its way through the park with some excercise equipment also available. Found it great place to start the day with a jog through the park along the foreshore

So beautiful. 3 wedding couples were having their pictures taken there which tells how beautiful. The swimming is great-more like a pool than beach since there really aren't waves. We saw kids looking for creatures in the rocky tide pools and people swimming laps and paddle boarding. Peaceful and gorgeous!

My hotel where I stayed in, wass just in front of Ala moana beach park. So this beach park was one of the first place I went when I was in Honolulu. The sand is remarkably white and the sea water is also clean. The beach, although it was full of people roaming and doing things, but it is more... More

This is a really nice beach, and not nearly as crowded as Waikiki Beach, so it's certainly worth a visit.
