Ala Moana Beach Park (Magic Island)
Ala Moana Beach Park is located just outside of Waikiki, across from Ala Moana Shopping Center. It offers a variety of backdrops including beach, ocean, boat harbor, park, coconut trees and a panoramic view of the Waikiki cityscape and Diamond Head mountain.
Nothing says HAWAII like a backdrop of coconut trees, Diamond Head and the Waikiki Cityscape. Since it is located just outside of Waikiki, its a very convenient location but it can also be very busy, especially on weekends (so try to avoid weekends if possible). Early mornings are the best time to get beach photos. Afternoons will be best to get Diamond Head and the Waikiki cityscape background.
