Let's Talk story Category: North Shore
The North Shore is known for its beautiful beaches, epic surf and friendly residents. But did you know it’s also known for its world famous shrimp trucks?
Here are three North Shore Oahu shrimp trucks and shacks we recommend you take a shrimp stop at next time you visit us at Turtle Bay. All of them are only about a five minute drive from your hotel room. You could also rent bikes from the North Shore Outpost located near our tennis courts if you do not have a vehicle.

Grab a bike and get ready to explore the legendary North Shore of O’ahu, Hawaii. Turtle Bay Resort is the only resort on the island where you can explore 1,300 acres of tropical paradise and traverse more than 12 miles of North Shore biking and hiking trails.
The North Shore Bike Park is located on property and has the equipment you need to go on your own biking adventure! There are even professionals that can teach you how to mountain bike if you don’t know how. Not into mountain biking? The North Shore Bike Park has cruiser and fat tire bikes you can rent as well.
Below we share two biking adventures, one for the cruiser and one for the mountain biker, we recommend on O’ahu’s Magical North Shore.

You hear our name, Turtle Bay Resort, and assume that there are turtles (honu) here. Of course you’re right! Turtle Bay Resort is one of the prime locations to see honu on the beautiful island of Oahu.
The two types of sea turtles most frequently observed at Turtle Bay Resort are the green sea turtle and Hawksbill sea turtle. The green sea turtle is listed as a threatened species under federal and state law. Hawaiian green sea turtles have shown a good population recovery in recent years, although they are still plagued with a papilloma virus that causes disfiguring tumors. Hawksbill sea turtles are sighted much less frequently than the greens.
Here is a guide to sea turtles on Oahu.
