Owner description: While you could certainly hike along these trails, there’s something special about exploring this exquisite oceanfront setting high in the saddle. Experience the majestic natural beauty of Oahu’s North Shore while horseback riding at Turtle Bay Resort. A picturesque trek along trails tucked within this 880-acre resort is a great way to enjoy the area’s spectacular beaches, tropical forests and sandy coastline. Group trail rides, evening rides, sunset jaunts and private outings are available.

“Beautiful & easy ride, great guides”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

You have a choice of places to ride and I'd recommend Turtle Bay.

Fantastic leisurely ride fit for novice and intermediate riders. The ride up the coastline of Turtle Bay's huge 800+ acre resort is amazing. The guides even point out a sweet place to snorkel. There aren't many fish close to shore but if you go out a little you'll see some fish along with turtles.

Guides were fantastic and provided lots of interesting along the way including telling us about all the famous celebrity horses you're riding. One's from "at close range". A few horses have been on TV shows.

“Fantastic Sunset Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

My group of five (ages 18-29, two who had never ridden before) had a wonderful time. Our guides, Kylie and Carlos, were super-friendly and helpful without being condescending--which we have found in some guides on other tours. They shared information about the sights (and told us every time we hit a movie-filming locale, which was neat!) and were happy to just chat with us. They also hopped off at different scenic views to take pictures of us. The tour itself offered spectacular scenery along the coast and into the forest areas. We covered a LOT of ground, which was nice since Turtle Bay is so huge and there is so much to see. This is a great way to see a lot of the resort's beautiful acreage in a relaxed way!

“June 24th-July 2nd”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Our ride at Turtle Bay Stables was very relaxing, the guides were extremely friendly and helpful. We loved our "Aussie" guide she was a hoot ! With us both being experienced riders it was nice to sit back and relax on "push button" horses, if we had our children with us we would have been very comfortable taking them on this ride. Our only complaint was having to wear helmets...neither of us enjoyed it, but understood their liability issues.
