Feeding time was fun

It took a while to get there by bus but was worth the effort. Not a huge place but they have lots of turtles and turtly info. Try and be there for one of the feeding times.

It is a small reservoir but great to spend some interesting and educational time with kids. They get a good opportunity to view the sea turtles up close and understand the importance of nature's preservation. The place is nicely maintained with few kids activity spots. Staff are very nice and welcoming.

First of all, quite small place... So don't expect to spend hours there. But still would recommend if you have kids and want to do something else then go to the beach. It's informing a lot about how littering etc kills many sea turtles every year and I hope it saves many turtles by spreading information and raising awareness about... More

Small, but nice place place to visit where they take care and keep turtles found in bad conditions on the beaches nearby. Average price. Money is used to maintain this non profit association. Worth a visit.

You can do the whole thing in one hour, if you love animals this is a must! Be sure to see the documentary about this place at the visitors center, maybe you can pet the head of a big seaturtle, and you have to buy souvnirs, they are cute and you can support this programme by buying some.

this is not an expensive place to visit however there isn't much there also the turtles are in pretty small tanks so I cant say I was overly happy with the way the animals were being kept. Having said that the aims of the project are really strong and the fact that they are growing turtle numbers is really good.... More
