Laniakea Beach, Hawaii
Also known as “Turtle Beach”, this beach is located on the north shore of Oahu and is famous for green sea turtle sightings. Year round, turtles come to feed here, even surfacing up to the shore to enjoy the sun! Avoid visiting in winter as the waves are often too strong for the turtles to navigate in.

It offers an impressive locking device to secure your items, while the soft light lining protects them. It comes with convenient carry handles too!
Coral Coast, Australia
You can see sea turtles throughout the year on the Western Australia’s Coral Coast. Go swimming with turtles at Ningaloo Marine Park or admire them from a cruise ride at Shark Bay Marine Park.
