Turtle on the First Attempt
Dec 2021 • Couples
We saw a turtle on our first walk down to the narrow beach. Be sure to walk to the trees and go through the simple trail. Do NOT try to walk down on the slippery rocks. People were generally respectful of other people and everyone gave the turtle a lot of room. Her name is Kanoa means Free One. She’s 65 lbs and came to that beach in April 2021. She’s a juvenile. Parking was easy across from the beach. There were no broken windows and many people parked their cars there.

Turtle Beach did not disappoint!
Oct 2021
Stopped by on two different days and ended up staying almost the entire day the second time around. Not only a nice beach (less for swimming, more snorkeling) but we came to see turtles and got lucky with sightings in the morning and again late afternoon when 3 green sea turtles came to shore to bake in the sun. Great volunteers who cordon off the area and make sure the wildlife isn't disturbed. Give the turtles space and let them rest, my photos are taken with a long zoom lens. Great day and mix of wildlife watching and enjoying the sun and waves crashing on Oahu's North Shore.

Turtle Heaven if ur Lucky
Oct 2021
We thought there were always turtles on this beach but we learned there is not. There are always local turtle life guards there to make sure when they do come to shore that no 1 touches them. So that's why some get upset but it's the LAW so don't do it. Anyway we finally got lucky our 3rd time stopping by. Parking is easy, it's where all the surfers park so it's the area that's packed like always. There are many paths to go down to this area. Many people are dumb and walk on the slippery rocks and fall and yep here comes the Ambulance.

Anyway, when they are there it is a BEAUTIFUL experience! Our son LOVES turtles so it made his entire trip. We got to see 3 on shore and many in the water near shore. The tide came in and took 1 of the turtles back out to sea.

It's a good spot to snorkel too. Small beach so not for hanging out. There was a stand there that sold some cool turtle necklaces.

Good place to see turtles
Aug 2021 • Family
It's a cool place to see some sea turtles. There were no tiger sharks and the turtles haven't been relocated to Waikiki. No car windows were smashed. Solid snorkeling and worth a stop. Traffic on the North shore is terrible after about 11a so get there early.

We went there to see those humongous Sea Turtles and it wasn’t a disappointing trip. Beside the beautiful beach, I was more impressed on those Sea Turtles resting on th beach. A nature that needs to be protected & preserved so generation can enjoy them. Highly recommended and be careful and respect their haven area🤙🏽🤙🏽🤙🏽

Gridlocked waste of time

Crazy traffic all the time, when you try to park cars will not stop and let you cross the street so you have to dart through traffic. If there are even turtles at the beach there will be a huge crowd and volunteers rope it off and make you stand pretty far back. Honestly you can see turtles in waikiki no reason to come here.

Laniakea: not fun nor safe.
Jun 2021 • Family
I drove by and was shocked at how small the beach is and how dangerous it is to climb down to the sand. The reef is exposed so the swimming is horrible, and turtles are available to see at much safer beaches. The available sand was so crowded and people are parking across the street illegally and running across the street, bringing traffic to a crawl. A kid got hit right before covid. So dangerous. So many better beaches to go.

Don’t go here. Waste of time.
Jul 2021 • Family
High theft zone, cars constantly broken into.No turtles here-relocated to Waikiki. There’s many beaches you can see the turtles especially if you get in the ocean. Beach is very Rocky terrible for swimming especially for families. Not worth the drive or dealing with the traffic. Better off going to Waikiki!

HORRIBLE
Jul 2021 • Family
Car got broken into and I was threatened with my kids watching. DONT GO THERE UNLESS YOU WANT TROUBLE!!!!! All this for one turtle we saw. Traffic was crazy and took 2 hours to get there only to have window smashed and back pack stolen. Trip Advisor needs to take this down or they could be held liable in some way shape or form.
