It's quite a trek to get there on very bumpy un-surfaced roads and dirt tracks. You can get there by car but it won't be in good condition after this trip - better to use a 4x4. Turtles only usually come out at night so during the daytime it's just an unkept beach with a few huts on. When we... More

We drove up the coast to turtle beach and were quite surprised with the nice sans and gentle waves on the beach.

Visited as part of a local quad bike tour, beautiful location. It was lovely to see the little baby turtles. The sea here is by far the clearest most idyllic I've ever seen so make sure to take a dip.

This is a lovely sandy bay where turtles come to lay their eggs. There is nothing here just a small sandy cove, there is an information hut and that's it

A beautiful beach, great for snorkeling at the right hand end. The Conservation station is really a shack with pictures of turtles and turtle information in it - OK but nothing more. Road is at least 5 miles on dirt tracks, a normal hire car can get there but it is very bumpy so 4 wheel drive would be ideal.

So glad that this is a conservation area - keep it safe for the turtles. Clear, clean water and a lovely sweep of golden sand. so good to find an unspoilt place like this.
