Visit Turtle Beach

Laniakea - Search Nearby - Added by Erik Holmes

You're almost guaranteed to see turtles with easy access to the beach and plenty of parking. It's also a really amazing wave during the winter season.

Laniakea beach or Lani’s, is a world-class surf break located on the North Shore. It is also referred to as “Turtle beach”, because this natural sanctuary attracts so many of the endangered Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle or “Honu”...making this the perfect place to see a few up close.

If you're driving toward Waimea Bay, Laniakea is the first beach you'll see on your left. You can't miss it - there are always a bunch of cars parked along the road. Find a spot, cruise down the long beach for a bit, and post up for the day. During a winter north swell, the waves can get pretty amazing. If you're interested in checking out the turtles, head to the north end of the beach where there is a protected cove.

Please be sure to respect the turtles, and give them their space. Please don't touch, feed or alter the turtles natural behavior in any way. To learn more, click here and here

If it's a nice day, be prepared for the crowds, but you'll definitely see the most peaceful and amazing turtles!!! Bring a camera and some snacks.
