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

Absolutely beautiful has to be one of the best places in Hawaii, not over crowded plenty of area to relax on the waters edge. Watching the weddings is a bonus on the beach.

The man made lagoons offer clear calm waters perfect for snorkeling, kayaking, or standup paddleboarding and nice wide beaches.

Although the ocean was frothing and pounding just outside of the lagoon, swimming and gloating in the lagoon was both pleasant and relaxing. Great place for getting so some rays and relaxation.

When dreaming of a Hawaiian vacation, this is the place you think of. Beautiful waters, sandy beaches, gorgeous sunsets. Several resorts share these lagoons. We stayed at Disney’s Aulani and it was just perfect. Early December and the water was comfortable. The air temperate was ideal. There were no crowds. Other parts of Oahu are a bit more commercialized and... More

One of the best coves you will ever swim in. Also if you swim out far enough where the rocks are located you can enjoy snorkinling

Two lagoons in front of huge resorts, one in front of a condo, and one adjacent to the small marina -- you can walk among all four lagoons, pick your favorite, and comfortably hang out there all day. You can eat (not cheaply) at three of the lagoons, and park using several options (hotel, valet, public, etc.). It's an easy... More

This place gets crazy crowded on the weekend so when I'm visiting my son's family we try to go through the week. The lagoons are great for the family. Clean area. Bathrooms available & the scenery is just stunning! We always count how many weddings are going on when we're there. Beautiful place for a ceremony with great backdrops for... More

Stayed at Disney's Aulani and relaxed everyday on the beautiful lagoon beach. Word of caution, the lagoons get fairly crowded on the weekends by visitors and locals.

parking is hard to find, but if you valet at one of the resorts (make sure to eat at one of their restaurants and have your ticket validated) then parking is very reasonable and you can walk to all 4 lagoons for sunset. Love eating at Longboards as you can watch the sunset from your table and enjoy good food... More

This is a series of protected lagoons with sandy beaches on the south-west side of the island. Beautiful view of the ocean (especially the sunset!) and excellent protection from wind and surf makes this the perfect place to relax. Also good for smaller children to play in the water safely.
