we were so surprised to step out of our car, walk straight down to the beach and see turtles just sitting their right on the tiny sandy beach between all the rocks. Volunteers were on the beach protecting the turtles and controlling the crowds but all were well behaved. A chance to get really close up to the turtles.

Not your typical North Shore beach in the winter. Tiny waves because of the break, perfect for little kids and first time snorkelers... great fish to view! We took our 1.5 year old and 3.5 year old and they loved it. The staff from Turtle Bay were so accommodating and friendly. The beach had some wild cats and roosters around... More

This is a good place to go on the north shore because the reef blocks the crazy winter waves and the kiddos can safely swim. There are several kinds of colorful fish to see and we even saw a sea turtle eating about 30 feet from the beach. They have reasonably priced lounge chairs and cabanas and the beach was... More

We stayed at the resort, but there is free parking for the public & snorkeling equipment for $4/hour if you want to enjoy this just for the afternoon. Even with huge waves in November, the little bay was calm enough for snorkeling. I was disappointed that the hotel doesn't have signs to remind everyone -- don't touch the coral! (Which... More

Nice beach, not too far from hotel grounds, not too many people unless you go when there are paddleboarding and kayak tour companies there

This is a great spot for all ages! We just wanted to check it out and end up spending a couple hours in the water with the kids! We wanted to snorkel but we had left all our gear at the car - didn't want to get it! Swimming with the kids was just as fun! Family spot! We loved... More

While it was November and the surf is up there is a breakwater that controls the tides in the area somewhat. Water was a clear blue and there really were turtles and other fish in the swim area.
