Turtle island just a con, we hired an overpriced boat to get to the island. Looked like it was ain’t even an island. The glass bottom boat was not up to much. They said we would stop at the coral reef and that did not...More

Staying in Bali for our honeymoon and decided to visit what we were told was a Turtle Conservation Area. Upon arriving at the starting point it was apparent the area was a tourist nightmare. Pushy peddlers trying to sell us junk the moment we got...More

This is a disturbing place to visit. Giant sea turtles suffering in filthy water in tiny concrete tanks, miserable. Other animals caged in awful enclosures, a poor cockatoo chained to a perch. Couldn't get out fast enough. The other turtle place on Kuta beach seems...More

Do not visit, this is not a nice place for animals. It's just sad and they will try and get more money out of you.

Most loved experience with my kids. Loved the opportunity to get up close and personal with animals. Arriving by boat and included with snorkel and glass bottom a must.

What happens in that location is pure animal abuse! All the animals are kept in terrible conditions and they are badly treated for the pleasure of visitors. The trip came as part of a package and we all definitely regretted taking it!

Unfortunally the bad reviews are all very true, since 2012 mind you. Very VERY sad and ugly place. Wish we read about this place before going.
