About Turtle Bay

For over 50 years, Turtle Bay has been a gathering place for generations of families and friends to share lifelong traditions. Since it opened its doors in 1972, Turtle Bay has been the only resort of its kind on the North Shore of Oʻahu, becoming synonymous with the unique experiences and natural wonders that can only be found on this side of the island.

The transformation of this oceanfront resort captures the natural beauty of its surroundings and deftly embodies relaxed luxury, inviting new and returning guests to experience its genuine aloha and Hawaiian hospitality. Set on a peninsula, Turtle Bay is the only full-service resort on Oahu's North Shore. The main building is designed with three wings of 408 guestrooms and suites, all offering unobstructed ocean views. Steps from the water's edge, the resort's 42 oceanfront bungalows is an oasis within an oasis. Providing the ultimate escape for rest and relaxation.

The ʻĀina (Land) and Moana (Ocean)

At Turtle Bay, nature is our sanctuary, offering endless adventures and escapes. With 1,300 acres, including 650 acres of conservation space, our commitment to stewardship is unwavering. From secluded beaches to lush forests and rocky coastlines, explore, pause, and breathe in the beauty of our expansive landscapes.

Explore beyond our stunning beaches. Dive into ocean adventures like surfing, snorkeling, and kayaking. Whether you're a thrill-seeker or seeking family fun, there's something here for everyone.

Located between Kahuku’s majestic Mauka (mountains) and the endless expanse of the Makai (ocean), lies our sprawling 468-acre Kuilima Farm. This expansive farm serves as a vibrant hub, providing high-quality produce and cultural learning opportunities. 

This lush paradise has more than 50,000 native flowers, shrubs, trees, and other floral and fauna (many of which can be found nowhere else). Ōhai, Ālula, and Pohinahina are just a few Hawaiian species blooming within the resort.

Protected Species & Wildlife

Turtle Bay is home to an amazing diversity of native species and wildlife:

  • The resort's namesake the Honu (Pacific Green Sea Turtle) are frequently seen in Kawela Bay, sunning themselves on the beach or swimming along surfers and kayakers.  
  • The endangered Hawaiian monk seal can be found on our secluded beaches but keep your distance as these beautiful creatures are on the Federal endangered list. According to some sources, there are only about 1,100 left in the wild.
  • Committed to conservation, we're part of the Hawaiian Island Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary. From December through May you can see them frolicking just off our shores. 
  • This is where over 70 bird species live, including the Moli (Laysan Albatross), ‘Alae ‘ula (Hawaiian Moorhen), and ‘Alae kea (Hawaiian Coot).

While admiring these animals from a distance, please adhere to conservation laws. Dive into unforgettable experiences like surfing, kayaking, and bird watching tours to connect with Hawaiʻi's vibrant marine ecosystem.
