This beach is right next to hotel and pretty uncrowded, the beach rents chairs, loungers, snorkeling gear. It is well protected so pretty nice for family as well.

We've come here twice (on two separate trips) and saw turtles each time. Come in the late morning or early afternoon for your best chance.

Haven't stayed at the resort yet. We took a walk around the property and cruised the beach. Walked around by the cottages and saw a bunch of turtles swimming . Pretty cool.

Clean beach big waves fun time. I wasn’t a fan of the vendor selling 25 dollar burgers though. They weren’t all that .

Swimming in the ocean here feels safe and there is a good area for snorkeling. It’s family friendly and you can rent equipment if you don’t own it. The rental is spendy though.

Turtle Bay beach is ok. There are so many other better beaches. That it is sad to spend your day there. Unless you are eating at Roy’s on the Beach.

Great spot to see some turtles, go snorkling or just sunbath at the beach. It wasn't crowded at all when we went on a July afternoon. Beautiful beach and nice water. Be careful of the rocks, you may want to wear some swimming shoes!

Each time we drove by we saw sea turtles; amazing sight! There seems to be the right food for them in this location due to the rock/coral that seemed unique near the shore. I was very disturbed to find people getting too close to the...More

No, all beaches in Hawaii are public access. The Turtle Bay Resort has plenty of parking spot for beach goers.
