Although on the same grounds as the high-end Turtle bay resort, the beach is public - so we went a couple of times...we were renting a condo about .5 mile away - so a bit of a walk. We were there over the 4th of July holiday- and they had a large festival with music, etc. and a beautiful fireworks... More

Beautiful protected cove - chairs to rent if you don't have your own. Nice placed to swim, relax and snorkle. Bar on site for food or drink.

Turtle Bay has to have one of the best beaches we have ever traveled to. You can see through the water. The sand is beautiful. The turtles are awe-inspiring.

This is more of a standard beach as it has great sand, well protected so no waves. No snorkeling to speak of. Free parking. You could tell you were in a resort area which is either good or bad depending on your view. There is a nice jetty which is jagged so you have to watch where you walk. We... More

Turtle Bay is a chill beach. Good for walking, snorkeling, and enjoying the northest coast of O'ahu. You can get there easily from Waikiki by taking the bus. It will just take you 2 hours to get there. In a car you can get there in maybe an hour and a half or faster than that. It was a nice... More

This is a wonderful North Shore beach with snorkeling, stand up paddle boarding, and relaxing with friends and family. The parking offers beach access if you are not a guest at the resort and the beach is clean and friendly. We enjoyed the sunset and dinner!

My gf and I were in the parking lot, just walking around, and Lyons approached us in his golf cart and offered a lift... We asked him to point out a few popular spots around the resort, and what we got was much more. Lyons def went the extra mile and took us on a personal tour of what felt... More

This was a very relaxing beach area. It was not crowded and it had wonderful views of the ocean. Be sure to take a camera with you.

Turtle Bay Beach and Resort is pure heaven. When you stay at the resort you get free snorkeling gear for two hours each day for two people. The bay is fun to snorkel around in and you see a wide variety of fish. There are also turtles, which we didn't see this time, but many people did. The water is... More
