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 stayed at Marriott Ko Olina but visited all four lagoons during our stay. The Marriott lagoon was terrific as were all but our least favorite was the lagoon with the Disney Aulani property because the area used by Disney was packed with people. Snorkeling was decent in the Marriott lagoon and the water was calm and very kid friendly.... More

Can't go wrong at all with this place! Top notch! On hot days the beach does get warm but hey jump in the water and cool off. Only problem Is I saw was no umbrellas offered and you have to use their rentable cabanas (which are so hot inside) what I thought was Interesting is all other resorts along the... More

We stayed in Disney's Aulani resort and used these lagoons most days. They were warm, clear and a blast. Would definitely recommend. Bought some cheap snorkel gear and loved it.

We were at Lagoon 2, Marriott Bar- they had some tasty cocktails, the water was lovely. The sun was out, clear as can be, just cooled off in the lagoons and sat back and relaxed on the beach with the cocktails... Really, what else could you ask for? :)

We stayed at the condos at lagoon three. They are nice and quiet, not too crowded and well maintained. The Disney resort is nearby, but we weren't affected by them. Nice coastal path to walk.

We have been coming to the Ko Olina lagoons for a number of years now and still enjoy our stay every time. The lagoons themselves offer a very nice set of beaches with safe swimming opportunities for all ages. For those who are looking for really good underwater viewing of the fish the conditions are just okay because the water... More

Perfect place for swimming and snorkeling, as they are protected from the stronger sea currents. All beaches are public in Hawaii, so don't let the fact that there are huge resorts around the lagoons deter you from visiting them! However, beach chairs may be owned by the resorts so it's best to check before trying to claim them for the... More
