A bit rocky and okay for relaxing or taking a quick swim, but snorkeling had pretty poor visibility.

We were staying in holiday accommodation about 20 minutes further around on the North shore and decided a day of snorkeling and relaxation was in order. Arrived early-ish and reserved the perfect spot under an umbrella with all the lounging chairs we needed for our family group. It was just a wonderful blue sky day.....couldn't help but be happy!

Turtle bay was very cool friendly people. Could not get food late at night or drinks tried to get a Banana Arma and they did not know what I was talking about. The drink they made up was very pineapple. Accommodation was pretty good but needs some renovation work done to give it a face lift

Sweet beach, mostly frequented by hotel guests after a day of outings and locals who want to chill. It's listed as a prime snorkeling beach, but conditions weren't good at the beach while we were there. Hanauma and Shark's Cove were way better.

Beautiful beach, but most of the corals are dead. There was a resident monk seal that swam around and decided to beach and sun bathe. Not enough umbrellas provided by hotel. Definitely bring your own if you have one.

Very nice beach. We enjoyed this beach when we stayed at Turtle Bay Resort. My kids enjoyed it and was able to snorkel. Not too much waves over the summer, which Ilke for the kids.

excellent staff. Many activities (for fee) on site. Beautiful beach Salt water pool. Clean, modern rooms. Couple of caveats: do not play with the 4-5 feral cats - they bite. The resort is not so big on air conditioning as we are in the NE, you may have trouble getting your room to a temp you'd prefer. Also, be sure... More

We come to this beach when we're in the area and it has a lot going for it. You can park in the free hotel lot right nearby and just walk over. The sand is just right... not too fine where it will blow all over like at Kailua Beach. The lagoon is sheltered by reef so it's a good... More
