Kewalo Basin is part of the City of Honolulu. For information on the many things to see and do in Honolulu, please refer to that article.
Like Honolulu, Kewalo Basin has a warm semi-arid climate with warm weather and sunshine throughout the year. Temperatures do not vary much, ranging from 20 °C (68 °F) to 32 °C (89 °F) due to the influences of the Pacific Ocean.
Ala Moana Beach Park is adjacent to Kewalo Basin. This 100-acre free public park has a beautiful 800-meter (over 2000-foot) gold sand beach. Created by dredged materials, the sand was brought to the park in the 1950s. The beach is protected by the outer reef created when the swimming channel was created, so its calm waters are popular with long-distance swimmers. Visitors to the Park enjoy sports and picnics. With lifeguards on duty, the Park offers showers and restrooms, picnic tables, tennis courts, a music pavilion, and food concessions. Popular with Honolulu residents, this Kewalo Basin Park is busy with families on weekends.
