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.

Nice lagoons

Nice lagoons with gently access. No wave, so perfect for young children or just for snorkelling. Not so crowd!

My family stayed at the Ko Olina Marriott. The lagoons are beautiful. I would walk along the ocean walkway past the lagoons which was fantastic.

This review is for the public ko olina park. 1. Great beach if: a. You have small kids. Lagoon very calm. b. You don't know how to swim. Low tide mid waist. No waves. c. Families who want a green area to play as well. Large grassy area right off the lagoon. 2. Not good if: a. Want a romantic... More

The lagoons are a great place for kids to swim. The water is calm and warm, though it can get pretty cloudy. Not great for snorkeling.

Easily one of the prettiest places on the west side of the island. The lagoons are warm and sandy. I snorkeled a bit and saw a few tropical fish, but not many. Parking is a challenge -- expect that you may have to wait awhile in your car before a space opens up. You walk through the hotel lobbies to... More

We rented a villa at the Ko Olina resort and had use of a golf cart. Using the golf cart we could go between the villa and the lagoons in just a few minutes. It was much easier to find a parking place for the golf cart. People queing up about 4 PM for parking spaces. The lack of parking... More

The lagoons are amazing. The ocean is easy to enjoy here since it is a man-made lagoon and it would be perfect for small children. The lagoons were pretty quiet, so it was a great place to relax in the sun. There are restaurants and hotels near by as well, which makes the location really convenient.

If you want to just enjoy the waters in Hawaii and relax, this is the perfect place to stop at. I would park at the 1st lagoon to make it easier on yourself. The water is usually pretty clear and relaxing. Really nice spot for beginner snorkelers as well.

FYI, this is not the North Shore. These lagoons are on the west side of the island, and largely man made. They are designed to provide a relaxing spot for weddings, swimming, and lounging. I can only speak for the one used by the Disney Aulani resort, but if you are looking for a break from the pool area it... More
