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

Enjoyed the beach at lagoon # 3. My husband and I snorkeled in the lagoon and saw some very pretty fish. The area is well cared for and can be crowded. There is a bar at lagoon 3. But the sunset was breathtaking.

We had a great time mostly at lagoon 2. I was totally relaxed letting my 5 yr old daughter play at the waters edge. In addition, we were able to take her snorkelling with no worries and with lots to see. She was so excited to see fish. She often would squeal as fish came into her view. The other... More

It is a great location for relaxing or family fun. There are many lagoons to choose from. We took a book and sat on the sands, occasionally taking a dip to cool off. We watched birds fly in looking for their next meal. It was funny watching a bird try to pull a worm out from a hole. As it... More

Great for smaller kids as the lagoons are calm and safe. Beautiful grounds nearby and a nice walking trail along all 4 lagoons.

The lagoons are a great family beach. The rock levies reduce the large wave to small swells by the time they reach the beach. Crystal clear water and soft sand.

This is a great beach to go to. It is so quiet there.. its probably one of the quietest beaches I have ever been to. The water is also nice to go in, the waves are not huge in the Lagoons, but they are big outside of the lagoon.

We walked the path along the lagoons most days in the late afternoon. The waves were spectacular! We enjoyed the paved path and many people jogging and walking. Stopped at Longboards at the Mariott one day for a drink to go!

Beautiful Beach. Parking is a little bit tricky, but you can find a few free spots. The water is clear and calm and the view amazing!

There are four lagoons and each of them are identical with one another. There aren't many people, so I liked it a lot. And of course, it was very very beautiful and peaceful. Anyone can go and sit on the benches. Definitely worth driving from Honolulu.
