Nice beach

Friendly place for first time snorkellers. If you are lucky you will spot some turtles while snorkelling.

As a hotel guest, you'll get complimentary towels and umbrella. For the public, I believe there is a fee. When I was there, the beach restaurant was closed, but there were some trucks instead. There is also a snorkel rental place. The snorkeling wasn't great, but if you want great snorkeling, go to the Caribbean or other locations in the... More

The only way to experience Hawaii away from the traffic and noise. Somewhat of a long drive but worth it.

Turtle Bay resort is nice, however, during every time it rains, the runoff into the beach at Turtle Bay makes the beach completely brown and gray. Also I was not impressed with the turtle bay beach at all even without the runoff. There are so many other beaches I would rather swim in or snorkel in! I can't believe how... More

My husband and I traveled to Maui for our 20th wedding anniversary, and our two teenage kids flew out to meet us in Honolulu a few days later. We spent a few days there before finishing our vacation on the North Shore at Turtle Bay. Our kids didn't want to leave Honolulu, and they couldn't imagine the North Shore would... More

Perfect name for this beach. You can see turtles from the moment you walk into the beach swimming in the water. Slippery rocks so please be careful.

Turtle bay Resort has two beaches the one opp the parking lot is really rocky. The one to the left of the resort looking toward the sea is the Turtle back beach, its the better of the two for swimming.

If you want convenience and access to food/drinks, then the Turtle Bay Beach is definitely nicer (better parking and rental options) than most of the isolated beaches on the north shore. However, if you are willing to give up some convenience for better beach area, including better slopes and transitions from beach to ocean, we would recommend many of the... More

You can't sit on their lounge chairs unless you are a guest. Water was very murky and barely any fish. Wasted my time here.
