#ThirstyThursday: Guava Cupcake

Turtle Bay Resort Guava Cupcake cocktail

Pineapple, light rum and coconut cream… oh my!

There’s something about a Pina Colada that takes you away to a tropical paradise in one simple sip. But what if it was possible to make your pina colada experience even more incredible? Believe us, it is!

We are taking one our fan faves up a notch and giving it a special touch - guava.

This is one of our bartender Vince's favorite cocktails to share with Turtle Bay guests who visit him at The Point Sunset & Pool Bar.


“I call it, the Guava Cupcake because it tastes like guava cake to me. It’s fluffy and delightful,” said Vince.

Three Stops for Shrimp on Oahu's 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.

The weather is always delightful in Hawaii, but there’s something special about the summer on Oahu’s North Shore. The ocean is calmer, making for perfect snorkeling and stand up paddle boarding conditions. The temperature is perfect for cooling off with a local treat - shave ice, and the sunsets make the end of a spectacular day of fun in the sun even sweeter.

Here are our top 10 favorite summer activities to enjoy on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii.

1. Snorkel with sea turtles
