White sands, crystal clear waters, and a peaceful atmosphere where you can rest or play make Ala Moana Beach Park a favorite among the local islanders. The 40 hectares (100 acres) park is filled with jogging trails, tennis courts, and large, grassy areas, suitable for sports and picnicking. Choose your spot under a tree, grab a table, or just spread your towel on the beach and head for a swim. The waters are nearly always calm, owing to the reef that surrounds the bay. The steep ocean bottom is good for long distance swimming or surfing. Non-swimmers, however, should exercise caution. Showers, bathrooms, and changing rooms are provided at the spot. Using our online itinerary creator, Honolulu attractions like Ala Moana Beach Park can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • It's very nice and has both grass and beach. Good mix of locals and tourists. Choose your own adventure kind of place but good luck finding parking. Decently spaced bathrooms and some good food options. Not a bad place to wade, swim, or even low key snorkel but less wildlife than other spots. Bring a plate lunch and enjoy short time or stay all day with a canopy and bbq.
  • Sunday morning get here before 8 if you want an easy time parking. Already somewhat crowded at this time but also good to see so many people out and about enjoying the park. Still some mask wearers but most without (hopefully vaccinated). Four stars just because the construction around the canal side (e.g closed bridges) seems never ending and there are also stretches that smell absolutely foul. Still super beautiful and enjoyable all around tho and a really short and easy loop that's like under 2.5 miles. Pro tip is to park at the mall pretty much anytime after 8:30am.
