Very fun to see turtles on the beach especially since our kids are too young to go snorkeling to see turtles. There were around 30 turtles on the beach and was fun seeing some coming up onto the beach and others going back out to...More
Unfortunately there were too much wind and high surf to allow the local surfers to work there magic on the waves. We were able to see some great waves and the Green Sea Turtles that come up to the shore were incredible to see. That...More
We were able to visit this beach on the last day of our holiday. Fantastic views of the waves, surf, and beach. Not a recommended place for swimming but a nice place to walk the beach or sun tan. Friends had recommended this spot and...More
Hawai'i is the only place in the world where turtles come ashore to rest, not just nest. When we were there we saw probably 50 of them, and a volunteer naturalist kept people away from them but also answered questions.
A sandy beach, except for the south end, where it's hard for the untrained eye to separate the boulders form the many green sea turtles that sun on the shore, especially in the evening. It's eye-opening to see just how clumsy these beautiful creatures are...More
As many have stated it would seem that dusk (just prior to sunset) seems to be when you are most likely to see turtles in great numbers. However, I think that there are some on the beach at any time during the day.

Delayed answer. The surfing app question has been answered quite well. Surfers are there whenever the wind is blowing, which is all of the time. This is one of the VERY best wind surfing beaches in the world. The greatest number of surfers will be found on the weekends, of course. Many live in Paia. I once met an Arab prince, complete with his body guards, while using the facilities there. He was there for the wind suring & was actually quite good. He spoke, dressed & smelled like most surfers.
