Kawela Bay

Top choice beach in Turtle Bay

West of the Turtle Bay Resort, a 1.5-mile shoreline trail runs over to Kawela Bay. In winter you might spy whales cavorting offshore. After walking round Protection Point, named for its WWII bunker, you'll find Kawela Bay, with its thicket of banyan trees as seen on TV's Lost. For the best swimming and snorkeling, keep walking to the middle of the bay. Kawela Bay is also accessible via a footpath from Kamehameha Hwy.
