The Ala Wai Canal is an artificial canal that separates Honolulu with Waikiki. Created in the 1920’s to drain the excess water from rice paddies and swamps that were considered unhygienic, the canal covers a length of 2.4 kilometers.

The Canal front is ideal for a walk and offers a view of the city of Waikiki. Often you can find locals boating in the canal and see the Waikiki Surf Club prepping their rowing skills.

Ala Wai Canal Reviews & Ratings

  • While staying at a hotel near Ala Wai Canal, I have used its pedestrian paths for morning walks. I found it fairly peaceful compared to the flurry of activity nearer the beach. Some of the scenes were beautiful.

  • Ala Wai boulevard along Ala Wai canal is one one of the best place for morning walk in Honolulu. If you staying in any hotel in Waikiki, you must go and enjoy the walk and devour the scenic beauty and nonchalant ambiance of the place. A nice blend of nature and human endeavour to amalgamate its creations in concrete!! Whatsoever, The Mother Nature in all its benevolence, and I was there to bath in its kindness (April 8-15,2019)

  • Best place to swim
