Been to bali a few times, but found something totally different on our last day. Paras Paros is a little hotel on the island on Sarangan, reached by car , 20 minutes from Kuta Sanur, or the airport. So different from the commercialism of kuta , etc....a tiny fishing village adjacent to Benoa harbour. (didn't stay there, just visited)... $AU... More

The people here are doing great work and very passionate about what they do. Although we didn't get to handle any it was amazing to get so close to these beautiful creatures.

Go have a look and make a donation. You can even hold a sea turtle. Sea turtles are having a hard time everywhere and the conservation center are helping out where they can.

The TCEC is doing it's part in helping sea turtles from going extinct and as a charity organization, depends strongly on donations.

There is another conservation place on the beach at Kuta that is good from May-July if you want to release turtles as well as find out about the plight of the turtles in Bali and are not worried about the open public place with 50 students. This place has older turtles as well which are interesting as well as indoor... More

Good place to see how local fishermen educate people about the turtle and their habitat conservation. They showed us different types of turtle in different ages. You can ask the fisherman which turtle can be picked up for a closer look, and it will be a great experience for the kids

Make time to visit the turtle conservation and education centre when you're in Bali. It will take you approx an hour and there's not entry you only have to donate 20000k each. Our guide was so knowledgeable about the turtles and even with the language barrier he knew how to explain about each of the turtles situation. It's amazing what... More

The people working there do a great job! They took us for a short walk around and explained how the centre works. The turtles were amazing! You can feed them and for a donation adopt some baby turtles, take them to the beach and then release them into the ocean. A Great organisation rescuing and saving ocean turtles!
