Right next to the hotel so nice for learners to surf and plenty of room for all to enjoy. The beach on the other side of the hotel is a better for having a dip / swim / paddle as the entrance is sandy rather than rock. It is not further to travel just on the opposite side of the... More

It's a very nice public beach, adjacent to the turtle bay resort, but open to everyone. The parking situation is very problematic because it's the same parking for hotel guests and beach visitors so you need to wait or circle a lot in order to find a spot, or park far away and walk a lot up to the beach....

The resorts beaches are public beaches, although you would never know. They are not crowded and are very clean! Some may be a little rocky from lava rock.

Nothing beat snorkeling with sea turtles. There are all kinds of beautiful fishes in the water as well. If snorkeling isn't your thing, you'll have a lovely time just relaxing under an umbrella. The pool is fabulous too! Go for the mai tais and the water slide. I might be an adult, but we had a blast using the slide... More

The resort has five miles of beaches to explore, swim and surf on. The hotel has a protected beach so that even little ones can enjoy without the fear of heavy north shore surf.

A public beach with every sort of patron, from nice large families, to others who look homeless, to the guy fishing for his dinner. Situated smack dab in the middle of Turtle Bay Resort, this popular and crowded beach is fine for a beach but there are others close by that are much better, and less crowded, including Hidden Beach...

Lovely beach that is full of sea life. My wife and I spent nearly 2 hrs snorkelling with one particular turtle that seemed to enjoy swimming with us. The waves were calm and the water clear, it was such a lovely, healing sort of experience. Unlike the Hanauma Bay near Waikiki, th place was not crowded at all. Great place... More

Protected and safe for sea-swimmers like me ( who prefer this to pools) and who over years, may have developed a slight fear of sharks. Never did I feel threatened. Not overcrowded either even with lots of children staying at the hotel.

The hotel beach is safe and calm and perfect for families and everyone. Clear, warm water soothes the body. The snorkeling isn't bad either and is best in the morning.
