nice to see the turtles, but the enclosures seemed too small, it's a beautiful location directly on the beach near the church

Liked the turtle exhibits. Disliked the promotional films in the cinema which seemed to be focused on retailing merchandise.

The work that is being done in Projeto Tamar is really valuable, better to say that it is priceless, all their statistics and achievements are great. BUT the way that things are being presented there could be much better.

I was always curious to visit Projeto Tamar having first heard about it during my science lessons back in primary school. The set up is good, nice gift shop, a little coffee bar. In terms of the turtles themselves I wasn't sure what to expect - certainly not the enclosures they have! Ok, one is amazed by the different types... More

If you are in Praia do Forte you must go here. Such a great project. Make sure your check the schedule of the days activities, we were able to go back at 5:00 and watch them retrive the hatchlings from the nest then released into the sea. Very cool !

Great place for kids to get in touch with sea animals. The infrastructure improved a lot since our last time there.
