Great work they are doing, but the center is only worth a short visit. Seeing the nest markers on the beach and the volentary watch men is great. Wonderful that people dedicate their time and effort in helping nature..

Nice place to visit if you happen to be in that area visiting the beach with the turtle nests. If you are lucky you can see many species of turtles rescued.
