Levera Beach is the major tourist attraction of Levera National Park, which is accessed from the east coast road through River Sallee and Bathway. While the 750m beach at Levera is attractive in itself, the main reason to visit is to view critically-endangered Leatherback Turtles nesting. These massive animals use the beach from March through to August, but the best time to visit the beach is May or June, which sees the peak of nesting activity. The turtles come up to the beach during the night, so visit in the peak months to avoid waiting around until the small hours! A research project is in operation on the beach throughout the breeding season, and so by booking a local guide, visitors can see a very rare sight and also learn a great deal about marine turtles' biology and conservation.
