Not a beach for swimming, but the tide pools were amazing! Great place for a nature adventure. Walked on the lava rocks and saw all sorts of crabs and tropical fish. It was like a mini snorkeling experience without getting wet

When the weather is nice, its great snorkeling. When the weather is bad, it has good surfing. The beach was picked up by staff each night and was clean in the morning. The beach was great for walking.

We came here today to enjoy the north shore area. It was a great day. The waves were calm and my kids got to see many fish. The crowds were not busy here today and we did manage to find free parking.

Turtle bay this time of year a bit colder and windier. We are from Seattle so we enjoy it but a bit disappointed not being able to snorkel. We definitely will come back.

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