Six adults, all with snorkels and fins itching to find some shopping, good food, sun, water, pretty fish, a nice place to lay our towels and a mean piña colada. We headed to Turtle Bay and were not disappointed. Bonus, humpback whales breaching out beyond the breaking waves. We all swam and snorkeled in the cove and came out of... More

Turtle Beach was lovely. Safe for everyone.snorkelling was safe and a place where beginners could learn safely. We even saw a turtle and lots of fish. I was good to lay out on the beach in the lolls outs. My only gripe is that one day there was a young boy with a spear gun. I thought this was a... More

Because we were there with our grandkids (eight and seven) and most of the beaches on the North Shore are better for surfers than swimmers it was nice to find the great little beach beside the Turtle Bay Resort. It wasn't very big, but there were seldom many swimmers there. Perhaps they thought it was strictly for the use of... More

Along with Hanauma Bay, Turtle Bay was our favorite snorkelling spot in all of Oahu. The public beach at the resort was free to park at and well maintained. The snorkelling was great, with a large variety of fish and a significant number of them as well. Apart from the snorkelling, lounging on the beach was great, and for anyone... More

Beaches in Hawaii have to provide public access and this one is not crowded. Scuba and surfing are some of the activities available. And yes there are turles in the bay.

There are miles and miles of soft, white sandy beach at Turtle Bay. Great whale watching too. If you walk along the shoreline you'll find some nice shells too.
