Turtle Beach North Shore Hawaii

November 16, 2011

My wife and I recently went to the North Shore on the island of Oahu to check it out since we haven’t been there for a while. My friend, who is an avid surfer, has a house out there and we got a chance to hang out over there. We did the typical tourist things when visiting the North Shore which included going to Sunset beach, turtle beach and getting some shave ice. I’ve never been to turtle beach before and wanted to check it out and it was amazing. There were two huge turtles lounging on the beach with people surrounding them to get some pictures. The good thing about turtle beach is that there are people supervising to make sure people don’t get to close to the turtles and to protect them. If you have a chance to visit the North Shore make sure to check out turtle beach. Here is some video I found of turtle beach so you can get a sense of what I’m talking about.
