Where the Locals Go: Ala Moana Beach, Honolulu, Hawai’i

Posted by alainaflute on February 10, 2012

A stone’s throw from the Ala Moana Shopping Center, just northwest of famous Waikiki Beach, a lovely stretch of sand with a local vibe calls you to dip your feet in the water, build a sand castle, or just sit on the nearby lawn with a picnic. Ala Moana Beach Park feels like a great escape from the hustle and bustle of the busy (and often touristy) Honolulu. Thanks to a protective coral reef, the waves here are rather tame. This family friendly beach even has a lifeguard on duty.

Ala Moana Beach doesn’t have the white sand and glamour of Waikiki, but it’s a wonderful spot to enjoy the sun and surf without being elbow to elbow with vactioning beach-goers.

Don’t forget your sunscreen, and have a great day at the beach!

Sister’s Note: two more super perks of Ala Moana Beach Park are that A) you’re right across the street from Ward Center, where there’s a great local coffee joint and a local chocolate shop, among numerous other things and B) there is a mini-peninsula attached to it that is basically dedicated to picnicking.  Said peninsula is called “Magic Island,” and I like to have cast parties there.  I will be writing an article about that later ^_^ -E.G.D.
