Activities Around the Island

Oceanfront Villas with a Pool and Jacuzzi

Ocean Villas pool and jacuzzi. Great for relaxing in the warm sun under the sway of the palm trees!

Turtle Bay Resort Oceanfront Villas Oahu

There are 5 miles of beaches and beach trails for hiking, biking, swimming, snorkeling, boogie boarding, and surfing.  Walk past the hotel and past the cottages down to the point and then onto the beach beyond that – I’ve seen a turtle in the water there almost every time I’ve gone!

Oahu Golf Course Turtle Bay Resort

The 2 Golf Courses on the resort are amazing! The George Fazio and the Arnold Palmer both have ocean views and are PGA and LPGA courses with tournaments going on all the time!  You can rent clubs and schedule your tee time through the concierge at the Turtle Bay Resort Hotel by calling (808) 293-6000.

Horseback Riding Oahu Turtle Bay Resort

I think the best horseback ride is the private tour at the Turtle Bay Resort.  It takes you through the undeveloped area of the resort, past a WWII bunker and right onto the sandy beach, where you can see sea turtles and watch the waves!  Reserve through concierge at (808) 293-6000.

Kualoa Ranch Oahu

We think the most beautiful part of the island is the valley in Kualoa Ranch. You can only see it if you take one of the tours the ranch offers and you will want to book this in advance since they sell out fast! They filmed the TV show Lost there, as well as 30 or so movies as well!

Waimea Fall Park Oahu - Hiking in Oahu

Waimea Falls Park is about a 10 to 15 minute drive from the villa. There is a small entry fee and they give a little hiking map and you can walk along trails of partially manicured and partially wildflowers and trees to Waimea Falls – the walk is really beautiful, but it is more of a stroll then a hike.  You can choose to take the paved paths along the manicured gardens or the trails through the natural growth.  Their phone is: (808) 638-8511, but you do not need reservations.
