My wonderful husband and I celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary on Oahu. We dubbed our trip #Poppyversary and in this series, I’m letting you in on all of our adventures on this fun island. Our first day was full of awesome and began with an exploration of Haleiwa Town. We hung out at local beaches afterward, then headed to the magical Turtle Bay Resort for an evening we shall hold dear for years to come.
We made it over to Turtle Bay Resort just before sunset, allowing us time to explore the impressive space for a bit. Just off the beaten path, we found our own little spot to watch the waves and relax.

I highly recommend checking out the beach at Turtle Bay, as it’s great for swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing, walking, watching sea turtles, etc. If you’re staying at Turtle Bay Resort, I believe they offer many excursions and amenities for you to choose from with their “Oahu Guidepost Travel Professionals” helping you find what’s best for your vacay adventures.
After our beach time we got ready for our sunset cocktails and dinner at the resort. Our first stop: The Point, which is one of the most spectacular spots to watch the sunset on Northshore.
Our food was excellent, and the service met our every need. It was quite windy that day, so while we would’ve enjoyed our original seating on a calm day, we were concerned that our food my fly away and asked to be seated at the bar instead. The staff happily obliged, and we continued our meal at the newly renovated and uber-cool pool bar instead.
Before our farm-to-table dinner at the Kula Grille, we explored a little more of the resort.
If you’re looking for fine dining on the Northshore, look no further than Kula Grille, the resort’s farm-to-table restaurant. Our meal was absolute perfection.
Our waiter was attentive and helpful with every question we had for him. Where was this chicken raised? What was his name? (Okay, I kid, that’s a Portlandia reference for you hipster folks.)
Our experience at Turtle Bay Resort’s pool bar and restaurant was unforgettable. We hope to experience more of the resort in the future, but the food alone was worth the drive from Waikiki!
