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. « less

The lagoons are amazing with deep water to snorkle in and fish everywhere. The sands are great and the waters are calm. Can't wait to go back and snorkel some more.

All four lagoons are amazing. Beautiful sunsets. Giant salt water pools. Good snorkeling and watching out for the flying fish coming out of the water. Just a very relaxing place to be can't wait to go back next year

Lagoons are ok but rather sterile that said they provide a safe environment to swim and have fun. Use the water sports facilities.

It has calm waters and the resorts provide all the drinks, food, and spas you could want. See turtles and monk seals before having a drink at the Ihilani bar.

Don't love huge waves but love the ocean? The Ko olina lagoons are exactly what you are looking for. Four coved out lagoons with rocks blocking the waves, leaving you with calm blue waters. Don't love sand? Park your chair on the grass lining the beach area. Public restrooms. Excellent sunset viewing past JW marriott: watch the sun set into... More
