June 20-21 Turtle Beach on O'ahu

NICE RESORT, SHAME ABOUT THE HILTON

semi-overcast 27 °C

Very overcast start to the day, so we did some food shopping at the small Hawaiian town of La'ie and then drove a few miles to Hale'iwa, supposedly an historic town but in reality just a tourist trap and a waste of time. On the way back, we thought we'd have a quick swim at Waimea Bay but the car park and all the road nearby was completely full

Anyway, by now the sun was out and back at Turtle Beach there were a couple of good swimming bays and a great beach bar called Ola Restaurant

The resort is very large, well-maintained and quite attractive until you see the original "fuck you" Hilton Hotel perched on the low cliffs above the bay
