Just minutes west from Waikiki, this half-mile beach is protected by a fringing reef for calm waters. Extending out from the beach is Magic Island, a man-made peninsula with large seawalls and a shallow lagoon, making it a perfect place for keiki (children) to swim. Tables are available for picnics.
In addition to being a beautiful weekend destination for Hawaii visitors and local families, Magic Island is a popular venue for weddings, holiday celebrations, and special events such as 4th of July fireworks shows and the Honolulu Family Festival.
Magic Island is located on the east end of Ala Moana Beach Park between Waikiki and downtown Honolulu, and more specifically between the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor and Ala Moana Beach. The street address for Ala Moana Beach Park is 1201 Ala Moana Boulevard, Honolulu, Hawaii. Arrive early on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays because Ala Moana Park and the Magic Island parking lot fill up fast on weekends.
