Magic Island, Honolulu
(4.6/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary and renewed our wedding vows on the beach at Magic Island in Ala Moana Park. This was a beautiful setting with memories that will be everlasting 
  • I would not like Waikiki weekday crowds. When during the day so there is homeless written word of mouth if you are not level. Is a Japanese wedding photography is much more than that, even where to turn to go into the line of sight. Also take photos so use care. But the place that it is. If you have decided to time recommended.

  • Ask your family photos to photographer, was filmed here. Around were couples taking wedding photos. In addition to Diamond Head also looks clean, sticking out from the beach, so East Beach, West Beach is not seen. I went during the day on weekdays, but not buried parking is only half as much.
