When the weather is nice, its great snorkeling. When the weather is bad, it has good surfing. The beach was picked up by staff each night and was clean in the morning. The beach was great for walking.

We came here today to enjoy the north shore area. It was a great day. The waves were calm and my kids got to see many fish. The crowds were not busy here today and we did manage to find free parking.

Turtle bay this time of year a bit colder and windier. We are from Seattle so we enjoy it but a bit disappointed not being able to snorkel. We definitely will come back.

Although it was overcast the whole time we were here, the beach is just beautiful! We plan on coming back next year.

Awesome! Worth the trip! Great price. Great fitness facilities. A world a part from Honolulu. Really bad food but other amenities made up for it.

The family and I stopped by here today and there is certainly nothing special about it to bring us back again. There are much nicer beaches in the world.

No, all beaches in Hawaii are public access. The Turtle Bay Resort has plenty of parking spot for beach goers.
