Ko Olina Lagoons
The four lagoons at Ko Olina are perfect places for spending the day with friends. The lagoons themselves are protected, fairly calm, and a great place for beginning swimmers. One of the downsides of these man-made lagoons is that there are no coral formations, but a major plus is that there are tons of fish that swim through here, including butterfly, goat, Moorish idol, tang, and wrasse. If you aren’t staying at the resorts, there's limited public parking at each of the lagoons, with Lagoon No. 4 having the most number of spaces available. If you can’t make it out there early to avoid the crowds, just head to the No. 4 area and take a short walk along the connecting path. Each of the lagoons is pretty similar and has comparable snorkeling opportunities, so pick the least crowded one and have fun!
