You’re on vacation at the famous North Shore of Oahu - You want some killer photos to capture all your memories. You may also want to blow up your social media feeds with jaw-dropping photos that make your friends and followers jealous!

Here are seven of our favorite North Shore Oahu photography spots to catch a great photo and you don’t even have to leave our resort.

1. The Point

The Point is located right off our pool bar. It’s a great lookout to enjoy the sunset with one of our famous mai-tais in hand. Our surf lessons take place here, so you can catch your friends hanging ten too.

2. Kahuku Point

Kahuku Point is the most northern point on the Island of Oahu. You’ll have to walk a little more than a mile on our trails to get here. Once at Kahuku Point, you’ll get a great view of the hotel and sand dunes. You can also take pics along the way. You may even encounter a Hawaiian Monk Seal napping on the beach.

3. Kawela Bay

On the opposite side of Turtle Bay Resort, you’ll encounter the pristine Kawela Bay. This Bay is about a mile and a half trail walk from the main hotel. Kawela is home to several sea turtles and is also the location for our outrigger canoe adventures, shaka kayaks tours, and surfing lessons.

4. The Turtle Bay Logo

When you first arrive at Turtle Bay Resort, you’ll notice a larger than life wave logo overlooking our pool area. It’s a great spot to capture a pic of the ocean view or even better, do a fun pose with the logo like our friend Kai Lenny.

5. The Banyan

Located near Kawela Bay, is our legendary banyan tree. The tree is truly a sight to see, with massive roots and a path through it where you can walk and soak in all the natural beauty. The Banyan has starred in several movies and TV shows, including The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Pirates of the Caribbean and Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates.

6. The Stables

Who doesn’t want a selfie with one of our friendly horses? The stables are located about a quarter mile from the main hotel and are home to dozens of happy horses, two ponies and our Canine Ambassador, Pono. All the furry friends have the ocean as a backdrop, yellow flowers, and a big red barn.

7. Your balcony

You don’t even have to leave your room for a photo that will make your friends envious. Open your balcony doors and snap a pic. All of our rooms have ocean views. Some offer a view of the sunrise while others offer a view of the sunset.
