Spanning 1,300 acres of beautiful oceanfront, the newly transformed Turtle Bay Resort welcomes family travelers to Oahu’s iconic North Shore. What has been a local landmark for nearly 50 years recently underwent a complete transformation, reopening its doors last year to offer families paradise incarnate in the form of the ultimate Hawai’ian vacation.

From a multi-island helicopter tour where you can see the iconic sites of the islands to a picnic at the top of the stunning Moloka’i Seacliffs to a stargazing excursion to view the constellations far from the lights of civilization, the resort offers plenty of ways to keep the family on the go during your stay.

 

You can take surfing lessons from a pro — professional surfer (and North Shore native) Jamie O’Brien runs the resort’s surfing program, or enjoy a ride on the beach on horseback — there are even pony rides for the little ones. When it is time to relax, take your pick of one of several pools, including Keiki pool, complete with slides for kids of all ages, or you can head to one of seven local beaches for swimming, snorkeling or exploring the tidepools.

Turtle Bay Resort is the only full-service resort on the North Shore, ensuring that during your stay, you will want for nothing. Seven different dining options offer locally inspired cuisine, ensuring guests enjoy plenty of variety to keep even the pickiest of family members happy. In addition, the resort offers the Paniolo Pā’iana option. This weekly entertainment dinner combines the island’s unique cultural heritage of island ranching with dining. Served outdoors, this traditional meal features a roasted pig, live hula dancing, activities for the kids and the unmistakable beauty of a Hawai’ian sunset.

 

By incorporating the island’s incredible natural beauty into every aspect of the resort’s design and pairing it with carefully curated experiences and activities, the newly redesigned Turtle Bay Resort creates a warm sense of ohana (Hawai’ian for family), from the bonds you grow as a family to the warm hospitality you receive from the hotel’s dedicated staff.

Ecotourism for Families in Southern Europe

As ecotourism and responsible travel become more popular, destinations look for ways to promote their rural and natural areas and preserve local ways of life. Agritourism — staying in farms or rural houses — is perfect for family travel, offering a chance for children to meet and interact with local people. It is not only a highly sustainable form of tourism, but also a more relaxing vacation compared to trips trudging through cities with children in tow.
