Ala Moana Beach Park, Honolulu

4.1
#3 of 11 in Beaches in Honolulu
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.

    Super crowded and hard to find parking. Would recommend getting here early in the day as the park is highly used by locals and tourists.  more »

Where to stay in Honolulu

Most of Honolulu's luxury hotels and oceanfront condos are located in Waikiki, the city's most popular neighborhood. Staying in this area keeps you within walking distance of one of the world's finest beaches, but it also means paying a bundle for your room and board. To avoid high rates and big crowds, consider the budget hotels outside Waikiki's busiest areas. Smaller hotels just a short drive from the city's beaches offer comfortable rooms and good food at a fraction of the price of their Waikiki equivalents.
