“Finally saw some turtles!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

Went there today and there were 4 on the beach and 3 or 4 more in the water just off shore! The volunteers there are very helpful and provided us with a lot of info. Very nice ladies.

“Turtles and traffic”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

A good place to stop and see a turtle or two. Just look for all the crowds/people/busses as you leave Haleiwa.

“Turtles galore!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

Nestled on the North Shore of Oahu is the picturesque Laniakea Beach, not the easiest place to find and when you do the parking is horrible. The only parking is on the opposite side of the road there is not a lot of spots and crossing the road can be dangerous. We went on Thanksgiving Day and were not disappointed. In the first ten minutes there 4 massive turtles came out of the water to sun bake. There is one simple rule that everyone needs to abide by and that is do not get too close to the turtles. Whilst we were there several on lookers repeatedly told visitors not to touch these majestic animals. We were told that we came at the right time, we revisited the beach the following week and didn't see any turtles.

“Don't get your hopes up!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

Well, we struggled to find this beach along the North Shore of Oahu. My daughter finally said she found it, so we struggled along bumper to bumper in the traffic to, hopefully, see more turtles. The surf was up that day. We thingamajig we found the beach, but, alas, no turtles that day! What a disappointment for us. So, I'm just saying "don't get your hopes up too high on this one!

“Do not miss Brutus and the other turtles”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

He and other turtles are often on the beach guarded by volunteers . Over 20 stay in this area and frequently come ashore. There were 3 turtles on the beach last Monday during our visit and many more swimming and sunning when I visited last May. Nice beach but I don't recall any restrooms. Be careful crossing the road from the parking area.
