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.

This place is so pretty. We went there for early morning walks with our family. It's a perfect place for kids, because the lagoon is protected and it's like a swimming pool. We loved it, the kids were safe and that made me HAPPY and RELAXED. I wasn't so relaxed I could zone into a book, but I could happily... More

First time there was a pleasant experience. I enjoyed a wonderful day with my son and truly thought it was one of the nicest and safest beaches in Oahu for young children, however we returned 2 days later and it was like I went to a garbage dump! The smell in Ko Olina was horrible, like oranges and dog poop.... More

Nice place. Staying at the beach villas so it was close. The lack of fish in the lagoon was a big disappointment. It is very good for swimming and playing in the water. very protected. not very crowded when we went due to the intermittent rains and a weekday after locals schools started. Water was murky due to the rain.... More

Your typical ocean side Marriott. The grounds and rooms are beautiful. The beach is great but i missed the waves coming in. The lagoons make good for a salt water pool. great walking paths. We did eat at Long boards twice. The food was very good. Salad$10, Burger and fry $18 $9 drinks. But the view was priceless. We did... More

Peace and tranquility compared to Waikiki. The Lagoons at Ko Olina offer a beautiful and protected beach experience. If you want to go surfing or diving this may not be the place for you. However, if you want to be able to relax and take a safe dip into the gorgeous Pacific then check this place out. Parking is limited,... More

The wife and I spent our 25th anniversary at the Marriott here in Ko Olina. The Lagoons are right off the property so we swam and sunbathed in and around them every day. I loved the fact you could swim in peaceful waters while the surf pounded just a few hundred feet away on the rocks. I highly recommend renting... More

Travelling around in our hire car we stopped here to check it out. Seems to be quite up market with some fancy hotels with these lagoon areas providing circular pools which are fairly shallow so would be good for families. There were shops and coffee houses and restaurants where we stopped for coffee. The area seemed to cater for deep... More

Man made coves. Calm for the kids. Clean and mostly clear. Part of each cove is hotel and then public. There are some fish to see if you snorkel, but it's dangerous to try and swim out of the lagoons. Not open wavy beach. You will have to drive elsewhere to find that.
