The animals that are on this island do lead a very sad life. There is a snake with its mouth constantly taped shut. Animals in very small cages with nothing to keep them happy ie no branches. The turtles are kept in very dirty water. a lot of them are sick. This place exists solely for the tourists at the... More

We went across to turtle island on a spontaneous tour, you only need about an hour or so there, was fun to get up close and personal with turtles and other animals. Wouldn't say it is a must but if you have spare time definatley worth a visit

We were enticed by the 'turtle island snorkelling' promotion after spending a few days in Lembongan with amazing snorkelling. Upon arriving, it was obvious we were in the Chinese tourist trap. No personality, no smiles, just pumping everyone through. The guy driving our boat didn't even say one word to us. We arrived at the turtle conversation centre first which... More

This place was advertised as a conservation. Upon arriving, the pools were very small and dirty. Clearly the turtles would have been much better off in the wild. There were few other types of animals as well. One of the saddening sights was a snake with its mouth taped up so it could be used for photo ops. Our guide... More

This is a sad place where animals are treated very poorly and are showcased for all the gullable tourists who pay a hefty amount of money to visit. This combined with scuba diving in the dirtiest of waters was such a major disappointment. I was shocked at how the animals were being mishandled by chinese tourists.

My wife and i were very excited when we were about to reach the farm as we expected that there will be wild turtles on beaches...we totally did not mind about the lousy so-called glass bottom boat and the fee they charged us - 1mil rupiah for the whole trip...but, on the contrary, those turtles were kept in dirty man-made...
