Description: Beyond Pearl City is Oahu’s Leeward Coast, home to spectacular beaches...
Beyond Pearl City is Oahu’s Leeward Coast, home to spectacular beaches like Makaha and Yokohama. But the biggest magnet is Ko Olina Resort with its glorious coves for swimming and sunning. Ko Olina’s newest addition is Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa that sidesteps typical Disney fantasy and focuses on celebrating the reality of Hawaiian culture, history and traditions. With the help of Mickey, Minnie and the gang decked out in aloha attire, the resort has a fun vibe that never lets you lose sight that it’s all about the Hawaiian Islands. At Ko Olina, you’ll also find two of Oahu’s most popular luaus at Germaine’s and Paradise Cove, plus a selection of ocean excursions departing the resort’s marina.

If you are on the west side of Oahu, this is a great place to enjoy the sun, sand, and lovely gentle turquoise waters. These 4 lagoons are shaped like Mickey and Minnie's ears. Very round, very sweet. Lagoon 1 is for the public with big grassy areas and a beautiful beach area, although the Beach Police won't let teens... More

The lagoons are beautifully situated amidst multiple lovely resorts. The walkways/facilities are clean the beaches are sloped down w/ nice sand and a great place for smaller children as the surf (lack of ) is very gentle. Parking is limited go early.

Wonderful lagoons. You feel like a mermaid sitting on the beach and watching the waves crash on the rocks. The water is calm in the lagoons. Perfect for children and snorkeling, though I did not see much in my limited time snorkeling but perhaps I did not find the right spots. By Aulani, there is a floating device for the... More

Liked that it was gentle for small kids. Would have liked umbrellas. The water is gentle with no coral to hurt your feet

I like the fact that I didn't have to worry about too many large fish swimming in the lagoon with me.

The lagoon was nice and the beach was nice and clean. No waves in the lagoon. On the Lagoon Disney rented paddle boards and other pool stuff.

Stayed at the beach villas resort in April and got to snorkel in the awesome lagoon out front. The best snorkeling! Lots of fish, more so along the rocks. Nice and protected. Only got rough in there a few times from the waves coming in. Great beach for the little kids.

All the lagoons are awesome. You can go to the one on Aulani which is busier than the others. The one next to it is quieter and looked liked locals used. The one in front of Marriott not as crowded as Aulani. They were all beautiful and you can rent boogie boards and kayaks. Kids seemed to be having lots... More

Lagoons were very pretty and easy to access. Water was colder than I expected but once you get used to it, the water was nice and calm to snorkel. Didn't see a lot of sea life, but did see some near the rocks and opening to ocean. Also checked out the cool looking crabs on the rocks!

Ko Olina Lagoons; located in Kapolei, HI provide some very nice, well developed beach areas. A couple issues know in advance, first being that the parking is very limited, we probably drove about at least 20 minutes before finding a place to park. Second, this is a very pricey area, , and your lunch, or snacks, or you easily be... More
