Turtle Bay Resort
Per night from USD $490 USD $70
Turtle Bay Resort is a luxury resort located on the North Shore of Hawaii’s main Oahu Island, the area home to some of the most famous surf breaks in the world, with Sunset and Pipeline just down the road. From the challenging big wave surf to extraordinary cultural history, Oahu’s North Shore is rich in many opportunities for sightseeing, adventure, exploration, rest and relaxation. With almost five miles of beachfront, Turtle Bay Resort is the perfect place to take in the azure beauty of Kawela Bay, Bay View Beach Lawn and, of course, Turtle Bay.
Pipe is a legendary wave that demands a surfer’s respect. It is the final stop of the Triple Crown of Surfing as well as the ASP World Tour. It’s a super fast, ledgy left hand reef break with one of the best tubes in the world.
The same take off zone as Pipe, but a right hand barrel that breaks over very shallow reef. It’s hollow, fast and powerful.
Off The Wall
Mostly a hollow, fast and powerful right tube, with some lefts but closes out on the inside.
On the west side of the resort, a hollow, fast and powerful right reef break when the swell is up, and a fun longboard wave that can take you over a hundred yards when its smaller. On the east side of the resort there is a right called Rainbows that gets fun when there is more east in the swell. Further east from Rainbows is Baggers, a very long and hollow left tube over shallow reef.
This wave is an amazing right hander with rippable walls and long barrels. When it gets really big, there is a left called Freddies on the south side of the same bay, and behind them both is a big wave spot called Phantoms.
One of the first recognised big wave surf spots in the world and holds swells up to 30ft.

Always remember respect is a crucial element of the Hawaiian surfing experience; and with reason – the islands waves pack punch; ocean conditions here are obviously step up from your local beach break. The local surfers, too, deserve and demand respect. Right in front of the parking lot of the same name, are several shifting peaks that work on everything from a west to a windswell wrap from the east. It’s basically sand bottom beach break scattered with random fingers of rock. Beach Park is generally a good place to start if you are beyond a beginner, but still getting used to things.
