Secret little spot absolutely gorgeous! Went with my 8yr old and it was quiet and secluded. It is surrounded by rock so waves are minimal. Water is shallow and near the rocks is some snorkeling, while we were there a wild monk seal found a napping spot on the beach right next to us! Also sea turtles were abundant swimming... More

This luau was fun but the music was extremely loud and the information given prior to the evening was not thorough. To enjoy the evening better, get there early and leave the kids home.

Discovered this beach through a recommendation from a family member. I was told if I wanted to see turtles up close, then this would be the best, and this beach did not disappoint! This small cozy cove is behind the Paradise Cove Luau. When driving here, there is limited parking (type Paradise Cove Public Beach in Google maps), about maybe... More

Hidden behind the entrance to the popular Paradise Cove luau is a natural lagoon that had lots of sea turtles!! Really fun to see! They come up to you, but just remember -- don't touch them!!! It's a little rocky on the right hand side...bring water shoes if you can.

Quiet, clear waters and you are sure to see sea turtles! We also saw a Hawaiian monk seal that was being watched and protected. We got lots of pictures and really enjoyed this area!

This is a tiny tucked away beach in Ko Olina. The beach is nice but there isn't much territory. If it is crowded (which it can get in the afternoon) you might have a hard time finding a place to set your stuff. Snorkeling is very good here. Not too big so a good spot for beginner snorklers. Plenty of... More

Paradise Cove is a local beach that many people extoll for the snorkeling. The day I went the water was rather cloudy, and the number of people made the experience less than enjoyable. It is relatively small, so you feel like you are constantly bumping into or avoiding people. While there were sea turtles there (which is a main draw),... More

We visited this beach twice, turtles swim right in to the bay just feet from you. We also saw a sea lion basking in the sun on the rocks. Pretty good snorkeling too.

Great family beach, small but nice. We saw some Sea turtles swimming here, as well as a Hawaiin Monk Seal on the beach. :) Great Snorkeling as well.

We went multiple times during our week long stay and saw multiple sea turtles each time. It was so cool!
