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.

Beautiful, scenic ocean views. 4 lagoons to choose from going from small to large. Can be very crowded on weekends and holidays, limited parking. Get there early. No pets or umbrellas allowed. Wonderful for swimming, children, limited snorkeling. I have seen turtles and amazing fish in the lagoons. Restrooms and showers available at all of the lagoons.

Wasn't impressed with this place. But if you keep driving up north along the highway to the very end there are some very beautiful beaches with tide pools and nice little waves.

Nice man made lagoon but too many activities jammed into it...kayaks, boogie boards, stand up paddle boards, snorkeling, swimming, platforms, etc., etc.

The lagoons are great for seeing sea life. The beaches art clean. Access is easy with the exception of Lagoon #1, which has limited parking.

I love driving over to the lagoons on a sunny afternoon with a girlfriend, just munching on healthy snacks, sun tanning and jumping in the calm waters to cool off. The beaches at the 4 lagoons are kept pristinely clean. You can rent lounge chairs from three various hotels or just bring your own foldable chairs. At the 4th lagoon,... More

The Ko Olina Lagoons are are great place for families (particularly families with smaller children) to hang out. The lagoons are protected from the waves and surge, and there is plenty of sea life for snorkelers. If you just want to relax, this is a great place to do it. The lagoon in front of Disney's Aulani hotel has more... More

The water was calm and protected. Great workout activities and the hotel staff serves while you lounge if your prefer.

the lagoons were very pretty, great for swimming and beginner paddle boarding. The beaches are crowed near the Disney resort. There is aTarget close by for necessities. Also nice local shops and restaurants. Only con- expensive resort area.

Love these lagoons. Don't have to worry about not having enough chairs to sit on.....otherwise have more than enough room to spread your beach mats.....Not too crowded...very relaxing...perfect place to have picnics....only downside is it is hard to find parking if you get there late in the day.

Stayed in our friends timeshare. 2BR, 2BA Suite. Fantastic! Large resort but elevators were fast!! :) Pools were great too. Staff was exceptional. They were very friendly and helpful. Beds were super comfy and it was easy to fall asleep and quiet. Love the Quiet Pool but wish they would restrict to adults only. The kids have 5 other pools... More
