Ala Moana Beach Park is an iconic spot on Oʻahu where beachgoers of all ages can swim, frolic, and relax. Boasting an enticing, white-sand beach and sprawling grounds, Ala Moana Beach Park is one of the most popular beach locations for residents and visitors alike.
Typically secluded in the early morning hours and bustling throughout the day, Ala Moana is known for its milder waters that make it suitable for everything from swimming laps to wading in the shallows. Yet surfing buffs shouldn’t discount this beach’s warm waters—paddle far enough past the reef, and you’ll enjoy a variety of surf breaks to keep your adrenaline rushing. Other recreational activities include body-boarding, wind surfing, stand up paddling, and rowing.
If the water doesn’t speak to you, there are a variety of land activities that are sure to suit your fancy. Up for a brisk jog? Planning a beach BBQ? Looking for a place to exercise? You can do all that and more with the park’s winding paths, picnic tables and grills, tennis courts, and exercise equipment. Beachgoers can also enjoy snacks from two food concession stands to satiate their hunger.
