Ala Moana Beach Park, Honolulu

#2 of 18 in Beaches in Honolulu
Beach · Hidden Gem · Jogging Path
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.

  • This park has a nice long beach, ample grassy areas, picnic tables, with lots of recreational options from swimming to volleyball, to walking and running.  more »
  • A great beach for relaxing in the sun and gentle water activities. The beach is protected from waves when the water is rougher so that it makes this beach perfect for those who aren't very comfortable in the water, learning to swim, wanting to swim laps (locals use it for swimming laps,) have small children, or want a relaxing experience. The park also gives relief from the sun for a picnic under a tree or relaxing in the grass. L&L Barbeque has a location in the park in case you don't have food. The park is well maintained, however the bathrooms can be sub optimal at times.
  • Very nice park. Our family of five and our dog had a picnic here. There is lots of space to spread out and run around, and lots of places to sit. It wasn't too crowded, and the bathrooms were actually pretty clean. Nice way to spend the day or just hang out in the afternoon.
  • Always a great place to hang out. Run bike swim surf hanging out. Has a lot to do there. Best part is the cops come around every now n than. Never a dull moment if you make it worth while of your time.
  • I love this beach park. There's a nice strip of sand to lay on and tan or chill. If it gets too hot and you need some shade, you can move away from the beach to the more shady grassy areas behind the beach. There's plenty to do... surf, fish, stand up paddle, swim, chill in a floaty in the water, go running/walking, picnic, etc. It's a very popular place so you may not be able to easily find parking on the weekends/holidays but there's street parking on the weekends and they've finally re-opened the newly repaved parking lot. Yay! In some areas, there's lots of rocky coral and rocks as first enter the ocean but once you're in the water is lovely.
  • Had to make an airport run yesterday; my niece desired to take one last dip in the crystal cool ocean before leaving. That's any easy one; so, request granted. Make sure when you go, BE AWARE and RESPECTFUL. This will get you a parking space without drama. It wasn't crowded; and, with the Covid pandemic regulations, locals and tourists were especially cordial and kind. There was a lot of tanning space on the sand, but we weren't there for that. 10 minutes and off to the airport 😆
