Map of Hawaii Islands


*UPDATE May 24

Turtle Bay Resort and all of Hawaii remains safe for visitors, except for the lower Puna region of the island of Hawai'i, AKA the Big Island.

“All of Hawai‘i is open for business and welcoming visitors with the hospitality, aloha, warmth and picturesque settings visitors seek in our islands. This includes Hilo, Pāhoa and the Kona and Kohala coasts on the island of Hawai‘i. The one area that people need to avoid is lower Puna where the eruption is ongoing," said Hawaii Governor Daniel Ige.

Three Places to Spot Sea Turtles at Turtle Bay

Turtle at Turtle Bay

Turtle Bay is often visited by several different marine mammals and endangered species. Reading our name, you’d assume Turtle Bay is home to several sea turtles and it is. It’s most common for snorkelers and divers to see the honu (green sea turtle) in nearshore waters. The honu are often spotted basking on shore or swimming and feeding in the water.

Please Be Respectful
When you do encounter one of these beautiful and peaceful creatures, be respectful. They are protected under federal law. Do not harass or touch them. Keep at least 15 feet away from them and don’t block their access either to or from the ocean. When you do spot one on shore, avoid making loud noises and do not use flash photography.

Here are three places you can spot sea turtles at Turtle Bay, all locations are located a mile or less from your hotel room.

Kawela Art Gallery Spotlight: Marc Hemeon

Marc Hemeon Wave Painting

You’ll notice some new, eye-catching art on display in our Kawela Art Gallery.

According to artist Marc Hemeon, Life, as it turns out, happens in waves.

“At the most fundamental level, creation is made possible by waves of light, sound, magnetism, and thought” explains Hemeon. “Our lives happen in waves too. The wave of our youth, the wave of relationships and lovers, the wave of children and family, the wave of career and work — each wave lifting us up, knocking us down, and moving us along on our journey through the sea of life.”

Hemeon’s art tells those life stories.

Turtle Bay Welcomes New Horse

Turtle Bay Stables Red Barn

There's a new horse in town and Turtle Bay Resort's employees are pretty giddy about it.

"We are so excited because he is going to be an excellent addition," said Turtle Bay Stables Director Alicia McCumbers.

His name is Boogie, and he's an 11-year-old Quarter Horse Paint Gelding. Boogie was born at Kapualei Ranch on Molokai. He came to the island of Oahu several years ago to train as a rodeo horse in Kahaluu with a young boy.

"He did rodeo but he’s so mellow his previous owner, now 11-years-old seemed to grow out of him. He needed a more rambunctious horse," said McCumbers.

As soon as Boogie saw his new home at Turtle Bay Resort's stables, it was obvious he was pretty giddy to be here too.
