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.Put Magic Island into our Honolulu online trip itinerary planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Honolulu.
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.

Calmer waters so great for kids, plenty of parking, accessible foods, if you go on friday nights stay for the fireworks, awesome view of the fireworks from this park, more of a local place to visit more »
ADA Alert: There is a wheelchair walkway made of rubber mats in the sand next to the first bathroom leading to the Ala Moana section of beach. Walkway goes quite a distance to the shore, but not all the way.
One of the most beautiful places to visit in the Dominican. Took the bigger catamaran as the small one seems to be a bit jumpy to get there. Lots of fishes to explore for the snorkeling.
