Turtle Bay Resort, Oahu, Hawaii
Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, the iconic Turtle Bay Resort is the ideal destination for a summer getaway with 1,300 acres of beaches, gardens, and still-wild public spaces. Turtle Bay Resort has launched new nature-oriented programming including guided bird-watching tours, horseback riding, and The Jamie O’Brien Surf Experience. In time for summer travel, the resort is launching new immersive experiences at the on-site Kuilima Farm, in partnership with Pono Pacific. This season, guests will be able to tour the farm to learn about the history of the area, taste a variety of items straight from the ground, vines, and trees, and pick their own or visit the farm stand to bring back items to enjoy as well. For families looking to immerse themselves in the island’s culture, the resort has launched a Paniolo Pāʻina dinner series paying homage to Hawaii’s cowboy culture. The weekly Pāʻina dinners celebrate Hawaii’s rich ranching and cowboy heritage – complete with a roast dinner and other traditional Paniolo ranch dishes, hula lessons, storytelling, and entertainment.
