How to Get There
Paradise Cove is located at the Ko Olina Resort, above Paradise Cove Beach, 24 miles (39 kilometers) west of Honolulu on Oahu. Round-trip transportation from Waikiki is included with many luau packages, and parking is also available at the venue.
When to Get There
Paradise Cove is open daily year-round. Performances are sometimes, but rarely, postponed due to weather. Oahu has a mild, tropical climate with hotter days in summer and a rainy season that typically runs from November to March.
Ko Olina Lagoons
Less than a mile from the Paradise Cove Luau, four picturesque beaches line the man-made Paradise Cove Lagoons. With powdery soft sand and rock walls to keep out any turbulent waters, the calm, protected lagoons are ideal places for families to relax and swim.
