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

Lovely area for a stroll down towards the harbour. The lagoons are primarily used by visitors of the various resorts and hotels and a lot of the beach furniture is for hotel guests only.

Great place to swim, if you like to be in the ocean water. It is much quieter and can always get a lounge chair.

Kids playing requires adult to be vigilant ... Relax, read, sit & stare out ..... Regardless of the day ... Clouds cuts down on sun & glare

Ready to get lazy? There is such a peacefulness to Ko'olina's lagoons that if you don't throw on your snorkel and get to exploring, you may just find yourself sleeping the day away - especially if you find a spot under the shade! If you are lucky enough to stay at the Ko'olina resort you will have access to their... More

Fun, clean and warm water! Great place to spend the day and a fun alternative to the hotel pool! Walk around -- there are many lagoons to see and experience! All are gorgeous and have their own feel!

This was one of my favorite beaches that we visited while on the island of Oahu. The water is blue and clear, there's some great snorkeling, and best of all, there are little huts in certain lagoons which provide shade. I loved the lagoons because they break up the tides so there's not a strong current or under current. I... More

Parking is very limited so go early or later in the day or prepare to wait. The sand is soft and clean. The water is so blue and calm that's perfect for those who are not strong swimmers. Not much to see in the snorkeling department but excellent for practice. The trees and surrounding areas are very peaceful and quiet.... More

I go back every year, it's just beautiful. It has everything you need without the hustle and bustle of Waikiki.

Clean sand, plenty of lounge chairs, though very hot under the sun without an umbrella and very mild water since there are water breaks keeping the surf out.

Lovely beaches and wildlife--blue water is so gorgeous. Sometimes a little busy and traffic but worth the effort. Enjoyed the turtles on the north shore too
