Just a short walk from your villa on Turtle Bay property, there is no shortage of activities you and your family can partake in. Land activities include golfing on one of the two ocean-front golf courses, horseback riding along the beach, and biking along the coast. If you are looking for something a little saltier, set foot in the beautiful ocean. Turtle Bay resort hosts surf lessons for those who’d like to learn, you can dive under the water with a SCUBA instructor and rent paddleboards or kayaks if you’d like to stay above water.

Attractions can be found all over the island of Oahu. Not too far from Turtle Bay is The Polynesian Cultural Center which invites visitors to learn about the different Polynesian cultures in the Pacific by visiting each of the villages set up in the center itself. They even host different luaus and shows that are unique to each village.  


If you are still looking to stay on the north side of the island reserve your spot for the North Shore Zipline. This zipline is Oahu’s longest and tallest dual zipline. This 3-hour adventure takes you through the forest over a series of Sky Bridges, rappels, an ATV adventure, and, of course, ziplining. As you venture through the forest, you will learn about Hawaii's rich history and culture while enjoying panoramic ocean and mountain views.  


On the other side of the island, you can pay your respects at the Pearl Harbor National Memorial. The museums and grounds are free to visit but if you’d like to go out and visit the USS Arizona Memorial, a reservation with a small fee will be required. If you are interested in going to see the USS Oklahoma and USS Utah memorials, a reservation for the Ford Island bus tour is required as it is located on an active military base.
