I loved being able to view Ala Wai Yacht Harbor from my condo. It’s beautiful, but when you’re actually walking along side it, it needs a good cleaning. There is trash everywhere!

This harbor is ok, it provided ample spaces for boats but there are lots of homeless people and the trash was everywhere. We took a boat ride from here otherwise would not have gone.

This marine beside Magic Island looks picturesque during the day, but particularly at night. Unfortunately it is filled with floating rubbish which detracts significantly when you get a little closer. Despite this, many small fish seem to survive. A few hotels front this marina; apart...More
