Parking is hard to find, and is a one car-one car in type of wait. The beach is nice to relax in, and not busy like Waikiki. It was a great place to relax at the beach!!!

The lagoons at Ko Olina are a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the clear, warm water. During the fall they are quiet and not crowded.

Don’t come here if you wanna relax. There’s like 50,000 kids and families all over this place at any given time. It’s not relaxing at all. Save your sanity and go to a regular beach. Any beach is preferred over this cheap lagoons

We never miss a chance to visit the Ko Olina lagoons. So beautiful with lots of places to eat in the hotels that line the walkway around them.

I highly suggest trying Paradise Cove Beach which is just down from lagoon #1. You can access the public beach path via Ali'inui Dr. Public parking is limited, but if you're walking, you're all set. Hundreds of colorful fish... More
