Biking, Hiking & Trails

With more than 1,300 acres of tropical paradise and five miles of unspoiled secluded shoreline, it’s no wonder Turtle Bay is the only resort on the island of Oʻahu, Hawaii, where you can enjoy miles and miles of hiking, biking, and jogging trails to explore. Travel the length of the Turtle Bay Resort property, between Kawela Bay and Kahuku Point, close to the sand or through lush greenery. Pack a swimsuit, towel, sunscreen, water, and snacks to make a day of it, taking swim or snorkeling breaks along the way. 

Bikers will love the North Shore Bike Park and its professionally developed mountain biking trails, with wide ocean-side trails for the leisure rider. Twist and turn through the lush jungle vegetation or cruise along to find gigantic banyan trees, secluded beaches, and much more.

Keiki Cove at Turtle Bay Resort

Keiki Cove

Keiki, the Hawaiian word for child, is a protected little cove where the water is shallow and calm year round, perfect for small children to wade into the ocean. Located next to the 17th hole of the Palmer Course, dozens of couples have said “I do” here and the area is one of our most popular wedding reception locations.

Kawela Bay

This pristine bay may look familiar when you see it, as the star of several movies and TV shows, including Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (just to name a few). A short stroll from the sandy shore takes you to our famous banyan tree, which has also had a role on the big and small screen. Shaka Kayaks Sea Turtle Tours, surfing lessons, and outrigger canoeing adventures take place here.

Distance from hotel: 1.2 miles, 15–25 minute walk

Banyan Tree

The Banyan Tree

A mystical and otherworldly place, this single tree is an amazing expanse of multiple trunks and vines. You may have spotted it in a few major movies and TV shows, including LOST and Pirates of the Caribbean. Older banyan trees have “prop roots” that eventually grow into trunks as large as the original, and many banyans live to be several hundred years old.

Kahuku Point

Legend has it that Hawaiian royalty, or Ali’i, walked these shores, giving this stretch of beach its name. Kings’ Walk begins after Kuilima Cove and covers the full distance of the shoreline to the end of our property. Catch the sunrise with someone special and you may spot a Hawaiian Monk Seal, sea turtles, and native Hawaiian plants along the way. If you get hot along your trek you can always take a dip in the refreshing ocean along the way.

Distance from hotel: 0.25–1.5 miles (one way), 15–25 minute walk
