Came to this beach to surf and didn't expect to be surfing with the turtles! The turtles are on the near the shallow beach so we didn't expect them to be far out in the water but they were! Respect their space and do not touch them. Enjoy the experience! We were in the north shore during weekdays and would... More

When I arrived was empty and I was lying on the sand when suddenly I felt something by my side, there were full of turtles going out from the water. You can have a view and get near them however you are not allowed to touch them since there are plenty of volunteers controlling. Very clean place.

I could sit for hours in their presence.... (visit every time we stay on the North Shore).... be respectful of their space and they will not mind you one bit!

Please keep in mind, now that the barriers are down it's still considered no parking there! You will get ticketed! I've ALWAYS seen turtles sunning on the beach there!

Loved it here. So beautiful and the beach was amazing. The sand was soft, the water was clear and warm. The parking can be tough but was doable. Would definitely go back!

This beach was recommended by a friend. We really didn't expect to see much but it was truly awesome. This beach is ALL about the turtles. They feed on the red and green algae on the rocks and were at least a dozen across a 200 ft stretch of beach. There are some local volunteers there to keep the turtles... More

Great place to snorkel with turtles, but beach is sparse and crowds can be large. Mid-week early in the day is the best bet to have the place to yourself!

Upon meeting a friendly local at one of the more popular beaches, she suggested this northern beach to see some sea turtles since we were traveling with small children. We are so glad we went. Although it was was overcast and raining, the turtles didn't mind or disappoint! We found most turtle action near the rocks to the left part... More

I came super early because I have no patience for rolling around to find parking. The beach had so many surfers- but they were so far deep with the big waves. The beach is small but the water is so blue and beautiful. It was cooler when I went so the turtles weren't sleeping on the sand but I did... More
