Lovely place with very dedicated, knowledgable volunteers. It’s free to enter but there is a donation box at the entrance/exit. A good half an hour is enough for the sanctuary but if you have time be sure to have a walk in the olive grove....More

Along with the turtles in Zakynthos the boys absolutely loved this place and want to go back. It's down a challenging road, hope nothing comes the other way. We were met by Leo who told us about the sanctuary and what we could do. He...More
