When most people think of Oahu’s North Shore, they think big wave surfing, palm trees, gorgeous beaches, and golden tans. Turtle Bay Resort is all of those things—840 acres, five miles of coastline, and only a few minutes away from the world’s most legendary surf spots—and much more. Boasting 665 acres of nature preserve that will never be developed (as per an agreement by both Oahu residents and local & state governments), activities designed to give visitors an authentic Hawaiian cultural experience, and a unique “bring your office to the beach” program known as “Workation,” Turtle Bay Resort gives all kinds of travelers reasons to visit.
This week, Peter Greenberg Worldwide broadcasts from the Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore of Oahu. We’ll be joined by Danna Holck and Tom “Pohaku” Stone, locals who are working together to make sure visitors to Turtle Bay receive an authentic Hawaiian cultural experience. Then we’ll hear from Marty Thomas, a former pro surfer turned managing director of the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing, about where he loves to surf. Plus, to shed some light on the most utilized form of travel worldwide, Dave Leach, CEO of Greyhound, explains why Greyhound has been in business for 100 years and hints at what they’re doing to keep travelers coming back. All this and more, when Peter Greenberg Worldwide broadcasts from Turtle Bay Resort.
