Although the incredible natural beauty and relaxed, friendly lifestyle of the North Shore have been described as “Hawaii as it used to be”, there are many reasons to enjoy a summer vacation in Oahu's North Shore at Turtle Bay. Here are seven that quickly come to mind.
1. Fresh and Refreshing Seasonal Fare
There are five places to dine within the hotel itself, and two additional resort choices within a few minutes walk. All seven restaurants, bistros and bars feature fresh-picked fruits from local farms, including Turtle Bay’s own farm, and fresh-caught seafood selected by our chefs from the docks and fish markets along the North Shore. The quality and purity of the food are among the reasons Time/Life recently judged Hawaii to be the world’s healthiest place to live. Not “one of the healthiest” but “the healthiest” (PERIOD)
Last February, the world marveled and cast their collective attention to the North Shore of O’ahu. With 40-foot-plus walls of water marching through the lineup at Waimea Bay, the Eddie—surfing’s most prestigious big-wave event—was given the green light as competitors in the invite-only contest pushed themselves over the ledge and raised the bar in big-wave surfing. And after a close call that nearly saw the event cancelled for the year, news broke late last week that The Eddie would run this year, if conditions permit.
The biggest night in surfing is right around the corner. That’s right, Surfer Awards, the surf world’s annual gala, is returning to Turtle Bay Resort on December 6. For more than five decades, Surfer Magazine has organized the awards show, which sees the publication’s readers vote on their favorite male and female surfers, as well as a host of other awards, including best movie and best maneuver.
