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.

Went to the Lagoons to swim with my little cousin who is 3. Great and safe place for him to splash around. I liked to swim deeper into the lagoons and check out some of the awesome fish I could see darting around. I also climbed up onto the rock walls that protect the lagoon from the ocean. Defiantly a...

Ko Olina is the perfect place to relax on a beautiful sunny day. There are 4 different lagoons. A section of the first three lagoons are sectioned off for private resort use. The second lagoon Honu has several beach umbrellas made of bamboo for your use. The fourth lagoon Ulua is a public beach. There is a walking trail that... More

We were staying a Disney's Aulani and enjoyed walking along the 4 lagoons every day. Many locals we come to enjoy the parks along the lagoons. There are also wedding chapels, you may get lucky to see a wedding. Great spot to spend a day.

We always go here with visitors and also just us to relax and enjoy the water and sun. You can bring prepared food in but you cannot cook there as there are no bbq's. Wealways go to lagoon 4. It is at the end past Auolani. Sometimes it is hard to find parking. Patience is a must.

We are staying at the Marriott Vacation Club as Marriott owners, but they also rent out the condos to non-owners. We have stayed at Marriott's on the Big Island, Kauai and Maui and this is our favorite place. The grounds are meticulously kept, condo units nicely appointed and two good restaurants. There are other restaurants within a short walking distance.... More

You don't have to be a guest at any of the resorts to access the lagoons. It's quite clever how they've provided a safe and easy beach lagoon on previously rocky, rough shores. There are plenty of bathroom facilities with showers, limited parking, but it is there if you look, food stalls or restaurants at the resorts.

Beautiful and swimable lagoon. Marriott has its own area of the lagoon for their guests, but on either side of their area is beach area for the public. Cabanas can be rented which we did on our beach visits.
