Visited here whilst mooching around the island on a Golf Cart. Quite a small attraction but worth it for the $3 entrance fee. Lots of turtles of various ages to see. Conditions appeared good and clean. Great to see nestung areas outside!

$3 entry to see all the turtles! Was awesome! You can feed the bigger guys outside! But you cannot touch the babies! SO CUTE!

This a a clean, well run place for anyone of any age. Kids and big kids will love this. We saw eggs, hatchlings two days old and various type of adult turtles. Don’t miss it!

A place where to know about many turtles species, how they live from the eggs to the adult stage, and very important how the government, agencies and peoples dedicate their priceless time to protect them.

Great place!! Cheap to get in and you get to see some amazing turtles! The baby turtles are adorable! And you can feed the older ones. They do great work here, even have an area where babies are waiting to be hatched. Would come back...More
