Ala Moana Beach

Ala Moana Beach Park is located equidistant between Honolulu and Waikiki and consists of a large park and two beaches, Ala Moana Beach and Magic Island. Located on the Waikiki side of the park is the channel which enters the main harbor in Waikiki called the Ala Wai Boat Harbor. The park and its two beaches are actually located on a peninsula of land that for the most part was man-made. This turned out to be a great addition to the growing local and visitor populations just beginning to burgeon in the 1950's because of the ease of access to the park and its adjacent beaches from the metropolitan areas.
