This is something you HAVE TO DO! Absolutely amazing to get this close to the sea-turtles, and something you could maybe struggle to do yourself, by hiring a pedalo, but still possible

This beach was amazing. You could see where the turtle eggs were laid which was really cool. The sea was okay but full of boats making swimming less fun. Views were amazing and I would recommend

Tanks are empty in turtle centre and no turtles seen. Only some fishes were seen. Good place to visit if you go to beach, otherwise not worth if visit.

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..
