Brief Directions

On Oahu's North Shore, heading north from Haleiwa, Laniakea Beach will be on the left hand side before you get to Waimea Bay.

Description

On a recent Sunday afternoon drive along the North Shore, I stopped in at Laniakea Beach (locally nicknamed “Turtle Beach”) and found this beautiful honu on the reef. She wandered around, snacking on the bright green algae and seaweed, until she was facing into the sun, with the sweep of Laniakea Beach in the distance, and a wave breaking on the reef behind her.
