A Destination that Inspires Discovery

Connect with the people, culture, and adventure of the North Shore.


The Spirit of Aloha washes over everything here. It’s the spirit of the islands, the people in our community, and the land that surrounds us. It’s what sets Hawaiʻi apart from the rest of the world. And makes our dreamlike location on the North Shore of Oʻahu a real standout. When there’s so much to explore, you have to go deeper. That’s where the fresh perspective is.

    We went horseback riding and had an amazing time! Raul was a great guide, giving us history and current events, he also really seemed to care about the people and the horses!

    If you have kids between the ages 7-17, Jr Waterman Adventure with Rocky at Turtle Bay Resort is a must. It was the highlight of our daughter’s Hawaii trip. Rocky made sure she overcame her fears of surfing at her own pace and made her fall in love with the waves and surfing.

    The photo session at Turtle Bay was really great... our photographer Selah really took the time to capture beautiful pictures. The background was stunning with only the ocean... opposed to others where the beach was so crowded.
