Pineapple, light rum and coconut cream… oh my!
There’s something about a Pina Colada that takes you away to a tropical paradise in one simple sip. But what if it was possible to make your pina colada experience even more incredible? Believe us, it is!
We are taking one our fan faves up a notch and giving it a special touch - guava.
This is one of our bartender Vince's favorite cocktails to share with Turtle Bay guests who visit him at The Point Sunset & Pool Bar.
“I call it, the Guava Cupcake because it tastes like guava cake to me. It’s fluffy and delightful,” said Vince.
The North Shore is known for its beautiful beaches, epic surf and friendly residents. But did you know it’s also known for its world famous shrimp trucks?
Here are three North Shore Oahu shrimp trucks and shacks we recommend you take a shrimp stop at next time you visit us at Turtle Bay. All of them are only about a five minute drive from your hotel room. You could also rent bikes from the North Shore Outpost located near our tennis courts if you do not have a vehicle.
