My time spent at Turtle Bay, Oahu was way too short! The beach is gorgeous and is the backyard of a resort. I went there on my second day here and we just walked around and waded in the water a little.
We were lucky to be there for the sunset and it was absolutely incredible. And I have the pictures to prove it.
I definitely want to go back and spend more time there.
What you need to know:
Turtle Bay is the only resort on North Shore (fun fact). And there will never be another one if the law holds up. You have to park in the resort parking but lucky for you, parking is free because it’s a public beach.
Also lucky for you, since you’re at the resort, you have access to the restaurant and bar as well.
I gather that Turtle Bay got its name because you can snorkel there are sea turtles. Since we didn’t get to snorkel I can’t give you any tips on that but I have heard from other people, that they saw turtles here.
Verdict: Do it!
I really hope we can go back and some point and actually get in the water. It’s such a gorgeous beach, I don’t see a reason not to lay out and snorkel.
