“The Walk!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012

If you are staying at Turtle Bay and want to go on a great beach walk here are the directions. Head out from the hotel down the drive. When you get to the end of the parking lot, head north on the black top path along the golf course that goes in the trees. This path will take you north to the beach on the other side of the hotel. It is quiet and no one else is there. A great walk, a perfect place for pictures and you probably won't see another person!! Imagine all the people in Waikiki and you have a quiet secluded beach on the North Shore no one else bothers to walk to.

“quiet and sheltered”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

While surfers like the massive breakers, the beach behind the breakwater was tamer for swimmers. And there was a beach bar for drinks and noshes right there!

“Tourist Beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2012

The reason I go to Hawaii is to get away from crowds and the "hotel" atmosphere. It is nice that Turtle Bay provides a beach for it's guests, but it isn't all that convenient. Their towel policy is a pain. If you forget your card or don't bring back towels on time, you are not given the benefit of the doubt of being a hotel guest. If you don't get to the beach early enough, all the chairs will be gone, and then you are out of luck. Finding food or a drink close to the beach is almost impossible. While there is a bar very close by, they don't sell sandwiches to take onto the beach. I suppose the beach is nice for small children as there aren't many waves, but it is crowded with every tourist snorkeling and swimming. The snorkeling is okay, but there are definitely nicer beaches to see on the North Shore.
