This is my favorite place to go to when I want to relax or even people watch without all the crowds. The snorkeling in the man made lagoon is awesome, fish aren't bad considering it's not natural. If you have a buddy and are a good swimmer you can go past the rocks, just talk to the lifeguard and he will explain the best way in or out and advise you on water conditions. There are tons of weddings in the area during the day and lots of keyless people at night so I leave right after watching the sunset.

I enjoyed the facilities that are available there and the enclosed lagoon makes it easy for children to play without too much concern. The only issue is a common one here on Oahu - parking. Come early or leave frustrated.

We renewed our wedding vows here with hawaiiweddings.net. It was a touching and special vow renewal . Beautiful scenery. Very quiet on a weekday. We saw 2 couples getting married. Went looking for bottled water and ended walking all the way to Ala Moana Mall! Make sure you bring something to drink. Sadly, we ran out of time to come back and enjoy Ala Moana Beach and Magic Island again.

We like to walk early in the mornings, as we reached to end of the island we looked down by the rocks and found a used syringe! Needless to say we did not cool off our feet in that water! On the weekends there is a lot of families that use this park. It smells absolutely wonderful and looks like lots of fun with their canopies set up, coolers, boogie boards and little ones running around. The banyan trees are beautiful. There is quite a few less fortunate people that have made this area their home, but we never had any troubles.
