We went here in the morning when exploring the north part of Oahu. It’s a small and idyllic beach but the most amazing thing was that we were able to see a turtle. It was very calm and relaxed at the beach for a while...More
If you're headed to the north shore, Laniakea Beach is a must!
You need to park across the street and there is A LOT of traffic so you really need to be careful!
Once on the beach you'll get to see lots of huge turtles...More
Hands-down, sure-fire place to see turtles on Oahu! Never fails us and we always stop here when visiting Haleiwa. This time, we were lucky enough to see several HUGE turtles on the shore, with, unfortunately, some very rude and clueless tourists invading their space. Wish...More
Honestly I come here all the time just to see turtles and people are parked across the street even though it says no parking in a lot of the areas....Sadly on this trip there were no turtles at all the whole day...according to the volunteer...More
The beach felt crowded because there's not really a lot of places where you can sit comfortably with the other people hanging out watching for turtles. There were people snorkeling in the water, watching for turtles too. We spotted a couple turtles in the water,...More
We too saw a number of turtles without even trying too hard. We approached the beach from a residential street slightly west (or southwest) of the main beach so had it largely to ourselves.
This is really a must-stop location on the North Shore.
I honestly had no expectation of seeing a sea turtle, but lo and behold, one did come up on the beach for us to see! The snorkeling is also unbeatable here. This beach, also called Turtle Beach, is on the north shore (not to be...More
This beach is beautiful and perfect for snorkeling or just laying in the sun. There are lots of turtles and tourists ignore the rules to touch them so don’t be that guy! There are turtle monitors watching as well.

The turtle guardian said that the turtles are there year round but are more abundant on the beach in summer. The ocean there has high surfs and currents, and swimming there is not recommended. The volunteer said that between 11 am to 3 pm is usually a good time to see turtles, but it is not guaranteed. She has seen turtles at all hours. She also mentioned that sometimes, she can go for two weeks without seeing a turtle on the beach. You cannot touch or feed the turtles. They are protected.
