Ala Moana Beach Park
Located between Waikiki and downtown Honolulu, this is a favorite (and convenient) beach among locals. This is a great place to swim, picnic, stroll on the beach or to relax. The beach is over half a mile long and the water is calm because it’s protected by a shallow outer coral reef.
The 100-acre park has large grassy areas, banyan and palm trees, restrooms, showers, concession stands, a music pavilion, tennis courts and plenty of picnic tables. This is also a good place to go jogging, picnicking, playing games, sunbathing, fishing, swimming, surfing, stand-up paddleboarding and relaxing.
