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 .

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.

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