Where to Catch Some Sun

Ko Olina Lagoons

The Ko Olina Resort is popular among families for its four white sand lagoons, with clear waters and little waves. They are open to the public, but parking is limited, so it is best to arrive before 9 a.m. Otherwise, expect a 15-to 45-minute wait.
 
 

White Plains Beach

The drive to White Plains Beach takes you past what is left of Barbers Point Naval Air Station and land that is being redeveloped into Kalaeloa, a community within Kapolei. Residents take advantage of Kapolei’s only surfable beach, which has a clear view of Oahu’s south shore, to Honolulu and Diamond Head.
