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.

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

We just visited the Turtle Bay Beach, didn't stay at the resort, but I certainly would! It's beautiful! And the bay is great for snorkeling!

Seas were somewhat rough, this was protected enough for a snorkel, as to be expected visibility was low, but still good.

Nice beach, but Waimea bay is better especially In the month of December when the waves are huge. Hh

This is a kids friendly beach because the waves were not big like other beaches in North Shore. There are a lot of kids playing in the water as well as adults. Non-hotel guests can also come in and enjoy it so it gets crowded.

We did not stay at the hotel in Turtle Beach, but we did visit this beach several times during our stay on the north shore. A lot of the beaches on the north shore are surf spots and not really conducive for family beach days. While my son is a surfer and likes the waves, we needed a spot to... More

Small sheltered cove just to the east of the resort , this is a public beach and there is marked parking available for public beach users at the resort. We brought our own umbrella shade and it's a calm spot to swim . We saw a sleeping seal
