Getting Here & Around

How to get to Turtle Bay Resort

You won't be too far away from new adventures at Turtle Bay. This is where avid surfers and onlookers come to see Hawaiʻi's legendary surf breaks. Where families of all generations can get closer to nature, together. Where golfers who love being close to championship courses can tee off in paradise.

Only a 55-minute drive from the airport, travelers can get around the island by car rental, shuttle, or Oʻahu’s public transportation system (TheBus). Please note, taxi and rideshare services are limited on the North Shore, so you'll want to plan ahead when you're traveling to and from the resort.

Car Rental

Pick-up from the Honolulu International Airport (HNL) makes it convenient for you to start exploring the island as soon as you arrive. Rental cars are in high demand, so we recommend reserving one in advance.

From the Airport

Once you leave the Honolulu International Airport (HNL), you’re less than an hour away from your oceanside getaway. If you’d prefer to take your time and soak in the beauty of the North Shore, you can get here through the East Oʻahu route.
