Laniakea Beach, Haleiwa

4.1
#2 of 8 in Beaches in Haleiwa
Laniakea Beach may be one of Oahu's top surfing spots, but its star attraction remains the native "honu," the green sea turtles. The seaweed growing on the rocks scattered around this small beach is a source of turtle food, and you can often spot these creatures just basking in the sun or sticking their heads out of the waves. Although they don't seem to mind the incessant throngs of camera-toting tourists, state and federal laws protect these turtles, so remember that you cannot handle them. To learn more about their habits and peculiarities, approach one of the volunteers providing information and patrolling the beach.

  • Sandy beach with parking all along the roadside but TURTLEs on the beach. Just amazing. Worth it for this alone... though it does cause traffic jams as people rubber-neck their way past.  more »
