We drove up to Turtle Bay Resort and walked on the public beach in an effort to find a sea turtle, but spotted nothing. This was really disappointing. Oh well!

There are many lava rock outcroppings on the beach and there is lava in the water. Best if you wear beach/water footwear to protect the feet. There is a very nice beach that is about a leisurely 15 minute walk to the west!
