We got lost looking for this beach its hard to miss with no signs of actual laniakea beach, so slow down & look out for heaps of cars on the side of the road n lots of people coming & going with cameras, there are signs on the beach that tell you about the turtles, no touching or feeding, &...

The Sea Turtles are truly fascinating and there's sure to be turtles here year round with an occasional Monk Seal. But parking is scarce and dangerous. You have to park alongside the Kamehameha Highway, either 50 yard to the North or 150 yards to the South and walk along side the roadway to the Turtle beach. The speed limit on... More

It´s amazing to see the huge honus (turtles) struggle from the wáter up to the beach to rest. We have been to "Turtle Beach" on several occations and every time we are impressed to see the basking turtles.

AKA Turtle Beach. We were not up close enough to touch them. Volunteers rope off the area immediately around each turtle. If you are lucky you will see them move, walk, or flip the sand. Maybe even enter or exit the water. The turtles return to this beach and are watched by locals & tourists alike. I was expecting to... More

The beach is very nice but my favorite part of this area is the opportunity to see the sea turtles. My grandson and I "adopted" a sea turtle that frequents the area through a non-profit which is one reason it is special but it is a beautiful beach. Like all north shore beaches, parking is a challenge, more so in... More

It used to be a secret beach where you can see turtles, but now more people know about the beach, and getting very hard to park especially after the parking area opposite of the beach has been blocked. We found it's best to park on the west side of the beach (if you're driving from Haleiwa, the other side of... More

This is probably one the prettiest beaches I've been too and I've traveled to many different countries and have seen some awesome beaches. Definitely a must go.

One of the most beautiful beaches on the island. The water is really calm here, so it's perfect for all types of beach folks. Lots of activities going on in the water, so it's fun to participate or watch. Even though this particular beach attracts a lot of visitors, it's still very relaxing. Must go and enjoy! :)

The beach is not easy to find. Topographic position 21.618267, -158.085835 (please use to the GPS) Parking can be hard to find. Cars park along Kam Highway. Just be careful where you park - don't park in the no parking zones. Be careful when crossing the road to the beach side. The turtles can come pretty close to you. You... More
