Nice place with a lot of tourtles. When we were there, there was around 30-40 tourtles. Entrance fee is 10 000 TZS/per person. There will be guide telling you information about this place.

The dedication and enthusiasm of our young guide was compelling. Real efforts are being made to help sea turtles, sharing knowledge of the types of turtles and their habits.
