Overall a good family experience. Showering is required before you enter the water but changing facilities are basic so best to put your swimming wear on before you arrive. The staff are helpful and keen to talk about the turtles. I am not sure about the overall conservation value as the turtles are held for public release rather than let go as soon as soon as they are ready but the staff seem to genuinely care so it is probably more complex an issue than it seems. Beware the very slippery steps into the water!

We went in October 2021, I was thoroughly disappointed by the entire experience. the location was full of people, the water was murky, and dirty, the stench of the water still haunts me until today. the turtles are actually quite scary and one even took a bit of nip on one of my friends. it's one of those experiences one needs to see to fully understand.

we where there yesterday in our rental car, family of 6, we rent a van for 30usd pr day, and with google map you find everything, and save lots of money instead of paying tour operaters 40-100 usd pr person to go to this attraction, where entarmce is only 10 usd.
they are doing a fantastic job here its a 100% 10 star experience, where my kids 5 and 7 was swimming and feeding with lots of big turtles, This is a must go wauw.

Having the opportunity to swim, touch and feed the turtles were absolutely amazing and at $10 per person not too much for the experience. It was too crowded and they try and sell the use of snorkel gear for extra $5. Take your own if you have but it is not needed. Would also recommend they manage the number of people.

We had a good time "swimming" (more like touching the turltles). I personally felt like it was too crowded. The place is small. I was actually worried about the turtles (I hope they do not get stressed). I 've heard that morning hours are less crowded. Entrance is $10 per person whether you swim with the turtles or not -snorkeling gears not included.
suggestions: Limit the number of people in the water at a time.

Very good facility, they do an amazing Job there! With the entry fees, they educate the local kids about eco-system and the sea-turtles! Go there and support them! You can feed the turtles, take amazing pictures and we even had the opportunity to go into the water and swim with the turtles!
You get a lot of information about the four endemic sea turtle species and and other sea turtle species! They save hurt turtles that were caught accidantly, and give them time to heal there!
In opposite to the Baraka Aquarium- which is close to Mnarani Conservation Pond- they set all Turtles free on every 20th of Feb.
Eco-social project that is very worth to be supported!

We walked over from our hotel at low tide. Great walk on sandy beach with occasional seashell finds. The turtle sanctuary was a delightful find. Ally was our very helpful, informative guide. We learned so much, saw the turtles and even fed them seaweed — how much fun that was. We so much appreciate the work being done here and were so glad to have been able to be here. Definitely worth it.

A small complex near the beach. They rescue turtles which are accidentally caught in fishing nets. The main goal is to release them back to the wild. There is a guide who will give you some explanation and a chance to feed the turtles. It is possible to get in the water and swim with them. But I really do not see any sense in doing that.

Turtles were great and the tour guide gave us very nice explnation, but the whole complex is very small and there is not so much to do there. If a larger group comes you will have to wait for a while to get your chance with tourtaises
