We did the guided visit but the guide was not very keen on adapting his speech to a larger audience, namely kids and teens. Otherwise, nice place to see turtles, some of them being really big. Nice place but not a must

You can see turtles in a large pool and different kind of tropical fishes. There are not lot of aquarium but the visit is nice. You can join a free guided tour. The centre isn't interactive enough, you won't stay more than 2 hours.

This place gives interesting facts about ocean furtles and tortoises. The turtles live in a nice pool which is equipped with a huge clean concave obersavtion window. We enjoyed watching their feeding and social behaviour.

The Kelonia Turtle Center has lots of turtles and quite informative pannels, but it is not very attractively presented and stays under the expectations. Ok, if it's a rainy day to pass time, but no more.

This is such a cute aquarium where you can get up close to the turtles. It is completely dedicated to the rehabilitation and education of the plight of turtles. Entrance isn’t expensive at all - less than a Big McMeal. Definitely worth the visit!

Had a great few hours in Kelonia, I would recommend for families with children or adults. There are indoor and outdoor exhibitions. There are great underground viewing tanks where you can watch the turtles swim.
