Getting Here & Around

How to get to Turtle Bay Resort

You’re never far from adventure at Turtle Bay Resort. It’s where avid surfers visit to catch the waves of Hawaiʻi's legendary surf breaks. Families of all generations gather here, spending quality time together while making new memories. Golfers love being close to championship courses, teeing off while feeling the gentle ocean breeze. Only a 55 minute ride from the Honolulu International Airport, you’ll be off your plane and saying Aloha to Turtle Bay Resort in no time.

You can get around by car rental, shuttle, or Oʻahu’s public transportation system (TheBus). Please note, taxi and rideshare services are limited on the North Shore, so plan ahead to secure transportation from the resort.
