Ko Olina Lagoons consists of sandy beaches along four picturesque lagoons—Hanu, Naia, Kolola, and Ulu—situated in a luxurious resort area. The lagoons were fashioned by human hands to provide a nice beach and safe swimming area for kids and novice swimmers. The semi-circular shape of the lagoon and the stone walls create a protective barrier from the open sea and also creates a nice snorkeling area. The surrounding well-manicured lawns are nice for picnics.
Sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling, bodyboarding.
Sunset is particularly enjoyable at Ko Olina.
Need to Know
Rip currents sometimes form near the lagoon openings to the open ocean. Be careful when going near these openings, and avoid them altogether if you are not an experienced swimmer.
