It is a popular tourist spot for viewing turtles that eat the grass growing abundantly on the rocks lining the shore, and busloads of tourists come and go waving cameras as they follow the guide keeping to his schedule. From the car park you walk through a sandy area of coconut trees to the rocky area where the turtles inhabit the rock pools

Hawaii is the home to five species of sea turtles. Olive ridleys, loggerheads, and leatherbacks are usually only encountered in deep offshore waters. But it’s common for snorkelers and divers on all the islands to see the honu (green sea turtle) in near shore waters. Green sea turtles, however, nest in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, a remote protected area where they thrive. Come discover Hawaii’s Sea Turtles!
