Lagoon #3 at the Ko Olina Resort is located behind the Marriott's Ko Olina Beach Club and offers the same super protected waters as all four of the Ko Olina lagoons.

All of the 4 lagoons in Ko Olina are man made and nicely protected from the ocean by breakwaters so this makes them a great place for the kids as the surf will usually be low to nonexistent, though there are no lifeguards here. That also makes the snorkeling here pretty good on most days and you'll find all sorts of fish to view. The fish are a reminder that the lagoon is still open to the ocean so this has all of the potential dangers of any other beach in Hawaii as well.

There can be a stronger current near the breakwaters, especially the center opening where the water exits the lagoon for the ocean which is roped off so you know to stay away from it.

There is a lot of sand to play on here and a decent amount of grass (some with shade from trees) along with public showers, drinking fountains, and bathrooms. Everything is very well maintained because this is in the upscale Ko Olina Resort.

If it's too busy then try Ko Olina Lagoon 1 (Kahola Lagoon), Ko Olina Lagoon 2 (Honu Lagoon), or Ko Olina Lagoon 4 (Ulua Lagoon) because they're all very similar. All four of the Ko Olina lagoons are connected by a very nice concrete beach walk.
