Three Perfect Kid-Friendly Activities on Oahu's North Shore

Posted on Tue, 2015/05/05 - 2:29pm by Jeff Mull

We know that traveling with a family isn’t always the easiest of endeavors. But when you arrive on the North Shore, you’ll find that entertaining the entire family couldn’t be easier. In our handy list below, we’re featuring three perfect ways to ensure that your keiki (Hawaiian for children) make memories they’ll never forget.

Surf Lessons While the North Shore may be known for its harrowing waves like Pipeline and Waimea Bay, it’s also home to a wealth of lineups that are perfect for beginners and those looking to learn. Our favorite is located right in front of Turtle Bay, at a break called Pool Bars. There’s an in-house surf school  at the resort, which makes learning and getting a board oh-so convenient, and the wave itself is known for being gentle and hospitable to beginners.

Tide Pools When a low tide sweeps the sea back, a new world appears amid the newly exposed reef. Tide pools, as they’re typically known, are an amazing way to show children marine life. Sea urchin, fish, and even octopus. When it comes to tide pools, you have to check out Pupukea, near Shark’s Cove. Just a short drive away from the resort, your children are sure to marvel over what they find in the exposed reef. 

Turtle Bay Pool It’s no secret that kids love pools. Especially ones with water slides. At Turtle Bay, we’re proud to say we have both. For those days when you just want to kick back, grab a cocktail and a burger, and hang with the family, you simply can’t beat the pool at Turtle Bay.

we are planning a stay around Christmas time. Wondering what you have to offer for young children? Ours will be 2 and 4 years old. They are not able to swim yet.
