Turtle Bay Resort
Oahu’s famed North Shore (home to arguably the best surfing in the world) is worth more than just a day trip. This is the rural, remote side of the island, where houses are shrouded in jungle and hole-in-the-wall restaurants serve some of the best local food you’ll find. It’s also home to Turtle Bay Resort, still fresh off a $45 million renovation that updated all 410 guest rooms and expanded its fitness and spa facilities. Families will appreciate the vast number of activities on offer, from horseback rides (the resort has its own equestrian center) and Segway tours around the property’s 850 acres to mountain biking and surf lessons.
