Turtle Bay Beach, Kahuku

4.2
#2 of 12 in Things to do in Kahuku
Protected from big waves, Turtle Bay Beach is a lesser-known spot for snorkeling. The calmness of the water allows for great visibility of the coral reefs and tropical fish below the water's surface. The public beach also offers a good chance of spotting the endangered Hawaiian green sea turtle, a highlight for many visiting the island. The resort on the beach has been used as a setting for many TV shows and films, like "Hawaii 5-0," "Full House," and "Forgetting Sarah Marshall." If you work up an appetite swimming, snorkeling, and sunbathing, there is a restaurant on the beach.

    The beach faces directly in front of the namesake Resort but is accessible to all. White sand and beautiful colors make this definitely a place to visit even if the north shore there are others more beautiful. We haven't met the turtles, which we admired at Laniakea Beach
