Alex O'Loughlin sits in a park and talks to an interviewer.

Hawaii Five-0 star Alex O'Loughlin shares a glimpse of his magical Hawaiian life in this Watch! production.

Hawaii is one the most beautiful places on earth and holds a special kind of energy—or Mana as the locals call it—that you have to feel in person to truly appreciate. Just ask resident Alex O'Loughlin, who made Honolulu his home seven years ago—and never wants to leave.

When the Hawaii Five-0 star isn't playing Detective Steve McGarrett on CBS' hit reboot, he immerses himself in island life.

While it isn't always easy to tap into the spiritual side of Hawaii when you have a busy shooting schedule and family at home, Alex makes sure to pause for a beat and take in all that natural beauty.

In between takes for his Watch! photo shoot, Alex shares how Hawaii inspires him. Aloha!
