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.

Small place but for those who like animals must visit! You can see not only turtles, but other animals for free. If you want you can donate to support the project!

We visited expecting a turtle rehabilitation centre. There were a few fish but no turtles. We expected more. We have visited other rehabilitation centres in other parts of the world who seem very o be better organised and equipped!!

These guys are really working hard to save the turtles against all odds. Please respect the turtlenests and don't go close. Also, ask the people in blue t-shirts about the turtles. They will be happy to inform you about them.
