We have been here several times. It is always a pleasant afternoon out.

Sometimes we just walk the paved paths. Sometimes I fly a drone. Sometimes we watch the sunset. Sometimes we listen to music. Sometimes we just... do nothing at all... :)

I used to go there nearly every day to swim a mile in the 70's in graduate school at UH-Manoa. Rode a bike down from Manoa Valley.

Get place to watch the fire works display on a Friday night. This is the spot many locals hang out at.

My husband and I were married on Magic Island. It was beautiful and such a nice location. We met friendly locals as well and were within close distance of everything in Waikiki still.

Our favourite place in Waikiki. Great place to escape fromt eh hustle and bustle on the streets and in the resorts. Lovely swimming area for the entire family, with gorgous shaded areas to relax in the adjacent park. Bring your own food and drinks, or simple tottle over to the shopping mall across the street. Heaven.

I had some time to kill in between appointments and Magic Island was the closest park and beach.

The parking lot was quite empty on a weekday so parked quite close.

I headed to the beach first. Passed by the showers and restrooms.

Sand was soft, beach was clean and water was warm. It was relaxing to just people or boat watch and get my feet wet and sandy.

Heading back to the park it was nice to have the palm trees proving shade which was good for picnics. More walkers and some joggers passed by.

My favorite place to visit when don’t have time to drive outside of town to go to a beach.

A very nice clean and safe park. Seems popular with families and was even busy when we visited later in the evening.

A friend and I spent about an hour here, enjoying the flora surrounding the beach. It is very picturesque and serene. This is a must do for any first time visitor to the islands.

Magic Island is worth the walk to find and around its beautiful park, stunning views of waikiki Bay and closer action to surfers

We went to Magic Island as the sun sets in the horizon. It was a breath-taking away sight. Then at night, as the buildings along the beaches, the sight of them lit up, the sight was amazing. This is a must-visit place.
