Turtle Bay Resort is located about a 10 minute drive from the Polynesian Cultural Center, home of the most authentic Hawaiian Luau. Where a feast fit for a king, the royal ceremony of ancient luaus is recreated. Gentle waterfalls, hibiscus blossoms, palms and a meandering lagoon form the backdrop of what the Kahili Awards called "the most authentic luau in Hawai'i." Arguably the best luau in Oahu, and a definite hit with visitors and locals alike.


Surfing is full of colorful, charismatic and creative characters whose contributions to the world span far beyond the waves. Talk Story brings their tall but true tales directly to you.
