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.

This looks like a private resort, but like all of Hawaiian beaches there is public access and free public parking. The water is gorgeous and enclosed by the lagoons. Very pleasant experience.

We Snorkeled Lagoon 2 and 3 and we were pleasantly surprised by the diversity of life around the rocks in both lagoons. This is a great place for families... smaller kids can swim in the relatively protected lagoons, and older kids can try snorkeling in the deeper waters near the rocks.

I have to say I was skeptical. I usually like to go to beaches off the beaten track, locals only kinda places. But, we have little kids, the winds were high on the east coast, we had to head for the leeward side and calm water. I didn't want to go to man-made lagoons, but, off we went anyway. And,... More

I feel so relax watching the beautiful scenery of this place. It is absolutely breathtaking. A must see when you visit Honolulu. Too bad I was here on our last day, I wasn't able to enjoy and swim at the beach, but we were just sitting at the one of the benches. It was a really nice windy afternoon walk.

There are 6 lagoons at Ko Olina. All man-made, with wave breaks, sandy beaches, laying areas, and restrooms. Each lagoon is also attached to a hotel- beautiful hotels. The area is very clean- not a piece of paperor debris anywhere. All the amenities you need for a day at the beach with children. The wave breaks are perfect for learning... More

We stayed at the Beach Villas, which are located in front of Lagoon 2. Get there early, we're talking 7am, if you want to sit under one of the permanent thatch umbrellas. Otherwise, the lagoon is large enough to plop yourself down anywhere not too close to other folks. Take your snorkel gear too as there are fish and even... More

There are 4 man made lagoons in Ko Olina. The southern most lagoon (nearest the harbor) is not very desirable to visit in the afternoon, as it seems to be the most crowded and has the most locals playing loud music and drinking. This logoon has a great walking path however, and makes an awesome place to go for the... More

As a sheltered place to suntan and swim these lagoons can't be beat. The secret is that they don't belong to the resorts: anyone can use them...if you can find parking. We came to check out Aulani in advance of our stay there, and wound up spending the afternoon at one of the other lagoons. Far quieter and just as... More

there are 4 of them. #1 is adjacent to the Disney Resort and the "under construction" JW Marriott. Very busy lagoon. #2 was perfect for 2 ladies who just wanted to relax with less noise. #3 and #4 were also good. There is a great walkway from #1 to #4.
