Recently stayed at one of the condos at Turtle Bay, so we ventured onto this beach. While it's convenient and nice for those staying at the resort, it's probably not worth driving to if you're on the other side of the island. North Shore is full of beautiful beaches.

I spent several days reading and sleeping on the beach. At night we left our sliding glass door open so we could listen to the waves. It 's absolutely beautiful!

We omitted to check up on what time of day the turtles would appear and went there at about 1 pm. There were no turtles but what we got was a pleasant afternoon on a nice beach. Stay away from crowded Waikiki and come here for a relaxing time instead. Fine sand, clear water, island breeze and minimal crowd. Utopia!

The beach was well taken care of and clean, however it was very packed and it was not very big. The water was clear but hard to get to because of the rocks and how many people were there

Because it's off the road and part of the resort this beach is often overlooked. However, it is a real gem in an otherwise rough north shore. Good snorkelling right off the beach and a picturesque setting to spend some time.

Love this beach for kids and snorkeling. No big waves but enough smaller ones for the kids to play in. Great snorkeling over the reefs.

I wasn't sure what to expect but, the beach was clean. I just prefer more waves. My 12 year old daughter loved it. She went snorkeling and floated on a blow up toy. Perfect for smaller children. In need of more shade options.

This beach has plenty of sand, a nice cove to snorkel with ample parking and easy access for the public. This beach is on the right side of the resort as you face the ocean. The beach on the left side has much larger waves, less sand and is used for surfing. Snorkling is good because the cove doesn't have... More

Often crowded, its still a beautiful, protected bay with great underwater life, a restaurant on the beach, fish in the water, and sometimes a fat seal on the shore.
