This was a small spot on the beach that had a box with turtles in and a donation box. I was very disappointed!

It's nice and very touching. Sad as well to see. Brief introduction and history in English. You can leave a donation if you wish. About a 10 minute walk along the main beach front from the boat departure / arrival area

It's a place where we can see the turtle in small size.... There's a staff taking carenof them and there's a box donation for the turtles. Other than it, nothing.

South of the harbour you can find this small turtle sanctuary right by the beach. Small pools with different ages of turtles. Donations are welcome. Worth a visit if walking by.

We were sitting in a Barung just up from the turtle sanctuary last week and the eggs were under where we were sitting. The babies started to hatch in the middle of the day. It was fascinating. We watched the first one make... More
