Summer in Hawaii is the perfect time to venture into the great outdoors and enjoy a picnic or outdoor BBQ with family and friends. This summer, trust Royal Star Hawaii to get you where you want to go, including one of our favorite spots below for picnics, BBQs and casual get-togethers.
Ala Moana Beach Park
As one of the island’s largest public parks located in the heart of Honolulu, Ala Moana Beach Park is a favorite for visitors and locals alike to enjoy an outdoor summer gathering. Perfect for joggers, bikers, swimmers and park-dwellers, Ala Moana Beach Park is also a prime spot to host a beach BBQ complete with sunny skies and picture-perfect views.
Though officially a part of Ala Moana Beach Park, Magic Island is often regarded as its own separate park, and is known for its proximity to grassy fields and the beautiful Magic Island Lagoon. Here you’ll find ample space to lay out a picnic blanket, drop your coolers and kick back with your family and friends for the perfect summer evening under the stars.
Kakaako Waterfront Park
Another favorite spot in Honolulu is Kakaako Waterfront Park. Just a short walk away from the Children’s Discovery Center and the bustling Kakaako district, this popular coastal location is one of the smaller beach parks where families with young children can come to bike, toss a frisbee and fire up the grill for a summer BBQ they’ll never forget.
Maunawili Valley Neighborhood Park
Venture to Oahu’s east side for a summer picnic at Maunawili Valley Neighborhood Park. This hidden gem located in the heart of Kailua is a beautiful gathering place complete with tennis courts, basketball and volleyball courts and a fun children’s playground set. It’s also a popular spot on the windward side to enjoy a midday summer picnic!
One of Oahu’s most historic locations, Moanalua Gardens can be traced back to Prince Lot Kapuaiwa (King Kamehameha V), who made his home here in the mid 19th century. Today, Moanalua Gardens is known for its enormous Hitachi tree, a monkeypod tree with an iconic umbrella-shaped canopy. You can often find families gathered under the monkeypod tree, enjoying a picnic in the cool summer shade.
