Visiting the Turtle Sanctuary

The road leading to the sanctuary is abit lonely and quite a walk. Would recommend you drive or cycle to get there from the main road.

I felt this place is too small to explain the full details about turtles. Indoor descriptions could be better and outdoor ponds just very average. Should introduce feeding time and get the visitors to be involved in some interactive activities

I am very excited about this holiday times where we had the opportunity to visit the turtle conservation center located in Cherating. Children can see turtles live here. This place is situated next to Club Med Cherating. No admission fee is charged

Visited the turtle sanctuary but unfortunately it wasn't release time. Still enjoyed reading the informative info at the beginning and being able to watch the turtles at our own pace. Definitely coming back during hatchling release time and nesting time! Can't wait!

Stopped at the turtle sanctuary enroute from KT to KL. We'd spent the previous night at the Legends Resort & didn't feel like swimming in dirty pool or filthy beach there - but were looking for something to give the kids (x3, aged 7-9 years) some stimulation & fun before sitting in our minivan for a few hours.
