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.

We visited a lot of different beaches in our last spring break to Oahu and I can say that Ko Olina is one of the most organized, cleanest, prettiest beaches we went to. However, it does have a "staged" quality to it, and if you are looking for something more natural or rugged, this beach might not be for you.... More

This is a wonderful place to take your family and even out of state guests to. Lagoon four is the perfect place to go. Local as well as tourists are using the area, swimming, sun tanning, walking and jogging. There is a small parking lot which fills up very early in the morning. Otherwise, you will need to pay $10...

No crowds, calm water, beautiful views. Love this. Snorkeling in lagoon 2 is pretty nice. Jogging paths. Palm trees, grassy lawns.

Wonderful protected lagoon beaches. All are great. Parking is a limitation, so get there early if possible. The fourth lagoon (farthest) has the largest parking lot. First lagoon (next to Aulani) is the most crowded but is the largest lagoon out of them all. Bring your snorkel. You will find fishes.

We stayed at the Marriott Ko Olina Resort and Spa and had the privilege of experiencing these beautiful lagoons every day. They are breathtaking! Take the time to either watch a sunrise or sunset, it is out of this world!

Paradise, 4 lagoons to chose from. only issue i have is you cannot use your own paddle board. Even though there is no sign explaining that. The Hotels monitor that and low and behold you can rent them from their rental huts.

Visited Lagoon 1 at the Disney Aulani resort. Free public parking is limited to about 10 spaces. Parked at the Disney garage (pricey!) and wandered through the property to reach the Lagoon. Lots of empty resort chairs so no one asked us to leave though we were not resort guests. Might be a different story if the resort was full.... More

Beautiful and clean. Great for kids since the water is very calm within the Lagoons. Parking is difficult and worth going there at least once.

I live about 30 minutes from here, and I visit frequently. The 4 lagoons are calm to swim, SUP, snorkel, etc. The beach, bathrooms, and landscaping are maintained very well. It's a great place for little kiddos and parents because the water is so calm. The most parking is at the 4th lagoon (if you're not arriving very early or... More

Ko'olina is a good place to take small kids to enjoy the ocean without having to worry about the waves and currents of some of the other beaches on Oahu. Located on the leeward side of the island, Kapolei is near by for shopping and dining. Although the Ko'olina area does have shops and restaurants, the prices are going to... More
