Turtle Beach, or Laniakea Beach
Print Leave a comment
Turtle Beach, or Laniakea Beach, is a pretty beach where recently turtles have come to rest and to feed off the seaweed-covered rocks. It used to be sad to watch the turtles being disturbed but now there are wonderful volunteers who stand at the beach, answer questions, and keep the turtles safe. Thank goodness for these great volunteers! Now you can enjoy the turtles knowing that they are safe.
There are two or more turtles here on the beach most days. The most there have been is nine! It is wonderful for kids to see turtles up so close. Kids will enjoy playing in the calm, warm water. It's a great beach for a shallow-water swim, and the beach is covered in shade- wonderful! Driving by the horses across the street just south of here is also fun for kids.
If you're hungry, head over to the cute surfer-dude town of Haleiwa. For a playground for your kids, check out Sunset Elementary or Haleiwa Beach Park. Don't miss out on a sunset cocktail over the water at beautiful Turtle Bay Hilton. And for a summertime swim in perfect waters, head to Waimea Bay.

|So long as you get to the beach on a sun shiny day get the camera ready there will be a lot of turtle photo ops. Also don\'t go at 7 in the morning... The turtles must sleep in... You won\'t see any at that time of the day. |
I had a great time!!!! Oh ya. Be careful crossing the road the cars whip along that stretch of road.
