I am so glad we visited the Turtle Conservation and Education Centre. The staff give you a short tour and tell you about the rescued turtles. You can then feed some smaller turtles cabbage leaves and walk around the centre. The centre has a donation...More
Before we arrived we had read reviews of turtle island and made sure this conservation and education programme was not in any way cruel or a money making machine. The site is small and takes only 30 mins to see and hear everything. There are...More
These people do amazing work! The staff is super friendly and speak good english. Be aware that this is not a zoo, so don’t expect a lot of animals and a petting zoo! It’s real conservation, helping turtles overcome the dangers they face from humans....More
This place was awesome. My girlfriend and I didn't expect much when we went there but for a short drive from Sanur it was totally worth it. We saw loads of turtles, big and small and we even got to adopt one! An experience that...More
Entrance is free and we we're able to adopt baby turtles for IDR 150,000 each. You receive an adoption certificate, turtle bracelet and pick your turtles.
We didn't release the turtles as they are released at 5am the next day but the people at the...More
This was my favourite activity of the whole holiday! Such a beautifully run place with genuinely passionate, caring and knowledgeable volunteers. It was quiet when we went, so we had a volunteer to ourselves who showed us around the centre (it's only small so doesn't...More
Definitely worth a trip, you can't help but come away feeling a tad sad for the larger ones who can not be released into the wild again due to their injuries (usually human related!). They hatch eggs here too, and you can sponsor a turtle...More
I paid to have two turtles released but the opportunity to go with them to the beach no longer exists, although this seems temporary. Access to the beach is blocked due to roadwork so you pay but then leave with just a certificate. Best put...More
The turtles are released depending on when the eggs hatch and therefore there is no set day. When it does happen they will make an announcement on Kuta beach at about 4 or 5 pm which can be heard from a distance. You go to... More
The turtles are released depending on when the eggs hatch and therefore there is no set day. When it does happen they will make an announcement on Kuta beach at about 4 or 5 pm which can be heard from a distance. You go to the Bali Sea Turtle Society site opposite the beach, pay and get a turtle in a container to release. When everyone has their turtle they proceed down to the water, line up and let the turtles go under supervision. This can all take a bit of time as they are quite disorganised but worth the experience. Look at the Bali Sea Turtle Society FaceBook page for the latest, if you are in Kuta though just pop in and ask them. If you walk to the beach via Kuta Market turn right before you hit the sand and walk along the path and you will find the Turtle Society on your right.

Welcome to the Bali forums! As you will also be travelling to the Gili Islands you should keep in mind that Ramadan starts the end of May and Idul Fitri is June 25. If you post on the Lombok forum you can ask any questions about how that might affect your trip, if at all. In 8 days in Ubud you can and should do lots of trips in a car with private driver to see a lot of things, volcanos, lakes, temples, etc. Depending on the location of where in Ubud district you are staying, you...More

Want to share transport to Bali Safari & Marine Park & TCEC? (2 Replies)
Hi, I'm wondering if anybody is interested in sharing the cost of a driver/taxi from Seminyak area to Bali Safari & Marine Park on Sunday 8th or Monday 9th June? I'm also planning to visit the Turtle Conservation and Education Centre at Serangan on the way back. I'm a 34yo New Zealander travelling solo in Bali. Thanks! Amy

Hi there, thanks for your message. I didn't realise they had a shuttle service and that it was free. The taxi was going to charge 400 for about 8 hours... I'll investigate that. Thanks so much.
Day 4 (lazy day in Sanur) and Day 5 - birthday out with Kade (5 Replies)
Combining two days as Saturday was pretty uneventful! Saturday was a prescribed lazy day so I don't have much to report. Lots of time in the pool, lots of time on the sunbeds. I don't think I could ever do a pool in a resort, I like my privacy far too much. We did have a couple of great meals this day though. Lunch at Warung Coconut Tree - I had nasi goreng and husband had sate. Both were good. Highlight was my mocktail, made from rosella tea, lemon and soda. Delicious! We decided...More

Awesome, glad you had a great Birthday :). Funny thing about Jimbaran people bag it but on one trip I had one of those missions that I wanted a crab as big as my head. Looked everywhere even the fish markets at Jimbaran. Couldn't find one anywhere. Was walking past one of the Warungs on the beach and saw this massive crab. Not quiet as big as my head but pretty close. Told them how I wanted it cooked and it was one of the best crabs I have ever had. Maybe it was something to do with...More
