One of the beaches in Cyprus where turtles come to lay their eggs every year.

Throughout the year it is a lovely beach, but during mid-May to mid-August, the loggerhead turtles come to lay their eggs.

If you do come to the beach, observe the warnings, requests and do NOT bother the eggs.

Go to the turtle island by jeep.
Amazing how many turtles are breeding there.
Beware: you can only see turtles by night.

We visited this beach with some friends to see how the turtles hatch and find their way into the sea. Unfortunately we saw something terrible. This place is supposed to be under protection so as the turtle eggs could hatch with safety. So instead of that we saw that there were some tanks where many turtles were alive inside as a tourism attraction!! This is the most terrible thing somebody can do to these turtles. This was awfull and as far as i am concerned is illegal also. Somebody has to do something immediately. If I could rate this place with zero stars i would have done it. AVOID IT

We went to the beach today and although I wanted to see how the people protect the turtles here I still can't believe what I saw. They had baby sea turtle in a tank. In a tiny tank...... No one was there to supervise them and the kids could just tap on the glass all the time. What is wrong with them? They should protect them and not enslave them. This is not the right way. I will never go back there.

The views are amazing, however it is a very long steep walk up and down to the beach! I'm not tall but it felt like I was lunging up and squatting to get down to the next step. Didn't see any turtles unfortunately but it did say that we went too early of months for hatching, there is a little hatch that tells you information about turtles and different types of them which was useful and interesting
