Into  the  North  Shore  Lifestyle

While many travelers prefer the convenience of tour groups, guides, and buses, this can be an impersonal approach to discovering a new destination. Often those who invest the extra time and energy to explore on their own, find many more memorable experiences.

Check out Luminary of the Life, Fred DeAngelo's Play List:

I like to SUP (stand up paddle board) at Kawela Bay, one of the most secluded beaches on Oahu. Located near Turtle Bay Resort, the beach is uniquely protected by the reef that diffuses high waves during the winter months when other North Shore beaches get pounded by high surf. Kawela Bay’s near shore waters are calm and free of currents year-round which is great for swimming, snorkeling and SUPing!

On Sundays, I try to drop by one of the many roadside fruit stands along King Kamehameha Highway. You can find fresh seasonal bananas, coconuts, mangos, avocados, star-fruit as well as my favorite lumpia. Be sure to ask for it when you visit.

We have a great staff at Ola at Turtle Bay Resort and we are really like an o’hana (family). Everyone works hard and plays hard which includes supporting the restaurant’s community service projects. As a team we regularly gather to clean our adopted stretch of highway fronting Turtle Bay Resort. Drop by the restaurant and find out when our next outing will be. You are more than welcome to join us!

I am definitely biased, but let’s face it….it’s hard to find a better place than Ola to enjoy pūpū (appetizers) and cocktails! As one of the only restaurants in Hawaii located literally on the beach, you can kick your shoes off and enjoy our great food with the sand between your toes! Try our seared beef poke and the kalua pork & goat cheese nachos – ono (delicious)!
