This man-made lake, located by to the Hilton hotel, is a great place to relax. If you have children is ideal to let play in the water. There are plenty of activities to enjoy for all ages. You can even have a picnic in the grass area close by.

This is a lagoon, i.e. an area of shallow water separated from the ocean by sand. Specifically, this one is an artificially made lagoon, run by the Hilton, but open to the public. There’s a parking lot adjacent to the lagoon, but since we were staying at the Illikai Hotel it was just a short walk from the hotel. The waters are calm and the location was perfect for our young kids (ages 3 & 5) to play without fear of them getting thrashed by waves. They had a lot of fun playing in the water and chasing after the fish that live in the lagoon. Of course, where there’s fish, there’s waste, but I’m told the water goes through a filtration system operated by the hotel. The water is a little cold, but the Hawaiian sun warms you up in no time. Speaking of the sun, there’s not much shade at the lagoon aside from the surrounding trees at the edges, so bring sunscreen or rent an umbrella. The sand around the lagoon is hard, almost rocky, so I’d also recommend bringing water shoes or sandals. You can rent water bikes, paddle boards, and beach loungers from the nearby vendors. You can also walk further down the boardwalk to reach the beach, other hotels, more shops and restaurants. Overall, it's a great place to play and lounge if you’re staying at one of the nearby hotels. Just remember to rinse yourself off if you go into the waters here.

Calm waters mean even little kids can master SUP balance and shallow waters make learning from your errors a breeze. Board rentals and lessons both available.

Lovely place for a swim with kids. Water much colder than the actual sea. Suggest a nice spot on the grass to avoid $70 for 2 chairs and umbrella. We hired water trike. Lots of fun. Great place for easy access to beach or lagoon.
