Turtle Beach - Laniakea Beach

Update: 7/19/08
"Honey-Girl" a regular visitor to Lani's beach was found dead. The turtle was apparently slaughtered for meat and left on the beach. There is currently a $5000 reward for anyone who knows who killed the turtle.

The Hawaiian name for turtle is "honu" or in nihongo "kame"

Right off of Kam Hwy on the North Shore you will find Lani's Beach. The beach is better known as 'Turtle beach" because many turtles come there to rest. Protected by state law, it is illegal to touch a honu.
