Magic Island, Honolulu

(460+ reviews on the web)
Island
Magic Island is a small manmade peninsula in Honolulu, Hawaii, adjacent to Ala Moana Beach Park and the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor. It was created in 1964 as the site of a resort complex, but was subsequently converted to a park. The name was changed to "Aina Moana," but the new name is used infrequently.The park on Magic Island is a popular spot where people gather for picnics, frisbee, socializing, and occasional festival or drama performances. Because it was a preferred location among homeless squatters, overnight camping was recently banned in the park.Each year, the Ala Moana Center puts on a fireworks show over Magic Island for the Fourth of July that draws numerous spectators to the surrounding parks. In conjunction with the show, the Ala Moana Center ropes off a portion of its parking lot for a Fourth of July concert featuring many local bands.The park's hours are from sunrise to sunset daily.

  • Remember when I finished shopping at Ala Moana, after moving in the car immediately met during the last minute. Loko people while walking, were enjoying sunset with friends. It is still beautiful. Because the atmosphere is very good, just a 20-minute time could get mixed up with Loco, come share the excitement. But I do not get into trouble have moved the timing then consisting of black, so you back in the car, etc..
