The beach was great for little little kids. Tiny waves, calmer waters for kiddie snorkeling, etc. The resort workers will ask several times if you are guests....all of the chairs are for guests only. There is a seal that frequents the beach. The kids loved to see that. We also had the fish and chips from the food truck restaurant... More

I prefer this beach over Waikiki. It is much less crowded and relaxing. The kids also saw a lot of fishes and turtles swimming.

Uncrowded and calm, perfect for young children and those who want to relax and enjoy the water. There are plenty of beach chairs and space and the sunsets at the beach are spectacular.

Fantastic sandy golden beaches. Crystal clear seas. There is a amazing restaurant on the beach where you can get the most wonderful dishes. It a great place to watch the sun set.

The beach at Turtle Bay isn't one of its strong points. The strong waves hitting it keep the broken coral on top in the shore break making for some rough sledding. We like to stroll along the edge where the sand is finer. There is a good water entry down on the east end by the wall. Watch out for... More

We spent a couple of hours here, as Surfer the Bar is supposed to be pretty good. Parking is free. The Turtle Bay Resort has a towel hut for their guests, and has a water cooler with lemon water. I was able to get water from there and from the bar. The umbrellas and loungers are for their guests as... More

Rather one is looking to plan a destination wedding, a family getaway, or a private vacation for you and your significant other, Turtle Bay Resort is the place for you. The staff is very friendly, the food is amazing, and view and tranquility is heavenly. This is how a Hawaiian vacation should be spent.

Lots of people who are not very confident with water can enjoy this safe swimming place. Too hot, too crowded. No marine life spotted.

I was looking for snorkeling on Oahu, having hit most of the hot spots, and this came up. it is the beach fro the golf resort at Turtle Bay, parking was free, and restrooms, rinsing stations were available. It was a nice stop on the way to Laneakea turtle watching. the fish near the rocks on the right are friendly... More
