Laniakea Beach Turtle Beach North Shore Hawaii
Aug. 14, 2018Leave a comment
Good morning! Welcome to the North Shore in Hawaii! What drew me to this place were the gigantic green sea turtles! Sadly, I wasn’t lucky enough to spot a green sea turtle. 🙁 Perhaps next time when I’m in Hawaii. Hopefully, very soon!
The green sea turtles are federally protected under the state law of Hawaii and the Endangered Species Act. Please do not harass the green sea turtles. They are beautiful creatures, by the way. I absolutely love marine animals. I’ve always been captivated by the beauty of marine animals.
If you’ve been to Laniakea Beach or Turtle Beach, have you spotted a green sea turtle? If you have, lucky you! 🙂

There’s a small parking lot across the beach area. Be careful when you cross the street. Lots of cars driving by. Parking is free.
Off to the North Shore in Hawaii!
At Laniakea Beach
Even though it’s a small beach, I still think it’s pretty and unique! What do you think?

I wish had seen a green sea turtle. Just once in this lifetime it may happen. A girl can only dream…
Have you been to Laniakea Beach? How did you like it?
- Laniakea Beach is also known as Turtle Beach.
- Do not harm the green sea turtles or harass them.
- Parking is across the beach. It is very small and tight. But don’t worry, you’ll find a parking spot.

I’m going to take everyone on a tour at the Byodo-In Temple in Hawaii!
What is the Byodo-In Temple?
The Byodo-In Temple is a Buddhist temple. It is non-denominational. This temple is dedicated to the first Japanese people who immigrated to Hawaii. It is a replica of a Buddhist temple in Japan, but a smaller version of it. FYI, this temple is not a practicing Buddhist temple, and everyone of all faiths are welcomed to the temple! Also, please be quiet and respectful when you’re in this area. It is still a religious place.
It is located in Kaneohe, Hawaii. Address: 47-200 Kahekili Highway Kaneohe, HI 96744
Parking is available. You’ll see it as soon as you drive in. Entrance fee is $5.00 per person (general admission).
This is what you’ll see when you drive there…and arrive…

You can read facts about koi fish here.
There is a gift shop where you can purchase food for koi fish.
The smell was unbearable. lol.
I highly recommend wearing mosquito repellent, or you’ll be eaten alive!
Into the temple we go! Take off your shoes!
Take off your shoes when you’re in the temple. You can put them back on when you’re outside.
