Was great to see the collection of turtles (including babies) and a reasonably interesting information section, but would have been good to have a volunteer/guide available to answer questions (how old the turtles were? when would the be released?)

Small place, good only because we get to see baby turtles n to release them into the sea for RM50. Some turtles seem so weak n reluctant to go into the sea, breaks my heart....

I could see two big Malaysian sea turtles.Eggs are like a pingpong balls. マレーシアの大きな海ガメを2匹見ることができました。たまごは、卓球のボールのようにまん丸でした。母ガメが、一生懸命、卵を産んでいる様子はなんとも神秘的でした。

Don't come on Mondays. It's closed. Donations are welcome as no admission fees are given. This place looks like a Malay kampung house. There's a mini museum where one learns about turtles & other sea creature like the dugong. Very interesting & informative. Behind the building, there are some pools where big turtles are placed as well as many cute... More

A must see and its free. A lovely stop for the nature (more specifically turtle lovers). Great place for kids, teens and adults to learn about turtle and the conservation. The eggs are collected from known nesting sites and are hatched at the sanctuary and we were privileged to see the younglings up close and personal. Tips are highly suggested... More

Situated next to Club Med Cherating, this facility is one of the few in the country which allows the public to see turtles outside their natural habitats. Consisting of a small museum, the facility also has a few ponds for the various types of turtles found in Malaysia. Ranging from hatchlings to adults, it's therapeutic to watch them swim around...
