See (not touch) the beautiful, majestic animals in their natural habitat. Some come and rest on shore, most were just playing in the waves. We saw over 20 along this short beach. Don't forget your camera

Went to this beach in Sep 2014. Perfect place to check out green sea turtles as there are always some resting on this beach. Parking can be hard to find so a lot of people just park along the beach side and do a quick stop to check out the turtles. But you need to be careful, we saw some... More

The beach is not easy to find. When you see a lot of cars parked along Kam Highway, you've found it. Be careful when crossing the road to the beach side. Laniakea Beach has a sandy side and a more rocky section. You can see the sea turtles coming to shore to feed on the seaweed near the rocky section.... More

My mother loved this beach when she was here. It as the perfect beach for her to bob on a boogie board for hours. The beach also has a nice shaded area for those of us who cannot handle lots of sun. This is a beach you should plan on spending all day at! Plus the mokes are a beautiful... More

Beach is fairly easy to find. Parking is all alongside of the road. When we went there was lots of people parked and walking along side of the road. Just be careful where you park - don't park in the no parking zones, or in front of someone's driveway etc. Few minute walk and we were at the beach. It's... More

It was just about sunset when we reached Laniakea Beach. When I saw the volunteers, I knew there would be honu (turtles) on the sand. We were rewarded with both a male and a female, who had been covering herself with sand. These gentle giant creatures cannot fail to impress. The evening was cool and we were treated to an... More

I love this beach - discovered it by accident about 13 years ago, before it got very popular and the guardians started being there. We go to Hawaii every year for a few weeks and I go up to this beach 2 or 3 times a week just to watch the turtles and enjoy the experience. Not so good in... More

Having visited Laniakea Beach earlier this week with my family, I can say that I very much enjoyed the experience! The beach is famous for its turtle sightings, and I was not disappointed. Several turtles showed up and we were able to see them swimming in the water (best time: in the afternoon). Many people snorkel in attempt to see... More

If you want to see turtles and relax on a nice beach, then this is the place to go! There were a few huge turtles when we went, and the water and sand are just amazing! I recomend you drive there yourself, and you will see the most beautiful scenery ever! Also, make sure you park of the right side... More
