Turtle Island is what it says, an Island shaped like a turtle where the Turtles are found during the day, you can hire a boat & go by yourself or go on a Turtle spotting trip all reasonably priced on the beach.

A must during a visit! get there by boat (including Keri caves and turtle encounters on the way) was 15 euros per person, best thing to do is to go to the beach and buy the ticket there!

Had a private boat trip for a wedding party to see the Turtles and be able to jump in the sea off the boat in the beautiful blue surrounding the island. Well worth a trip to see the turtles. Would highly recommend.

Hire your own boat from just outside the hotel, €40 an hour but well worth it, we hired it for 2 hours and were able to take our time. Able to drive around other side of Cameo island too. Very beautiful
