Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The kids loved it so much, they smiled all the time. Worth the trip to see them happy. The little turtles were adorable.

We got there by taxi half hour away which cost 900 baht return. Entrance was 60 baht (£1.50). Only stayed an hour or so but well worth it. Watch the baby turtles playing and feeding etc. Has a few tanks with the age of the turtles but others could be added. The staff looking after the turtles seem very decicated to their work. Don't use deet spray near the tanks because it can harm them (also sun cream) I got told of for it, fair enough. Again more signage needed. At the entrance is a boat that was left from the 2004 tsunami where it was taken inland. Small shop and also a cafe.

We went here as part of a conducted tour.

Turtles, small, medium and large in separate “ponds”.

Cute, passive and not much else!!!

The most important aspect about this place is the fact that it is a sanctuary for the survival of the species, although many of the older turtles can not be returned to the natural environment!!

A little underwhelming.

The work is very underrated, we paid like 3,-€ for the entrance.
It’s sad, that there‘s nobody to tell you something when you don’t go with a tour.

There are different aged turtels, they are injured or they breed them so they don’t die out.

They let the most of them back to the ocean after 6 months to 1 year.

We visited here on a private tour, but unfortunately, our driver couldn't speak English and there wasn't enough signage, so we really didn't know what was going on. The turtles were cute and looked healthy,

We were really glad to have visited this conservation attraction and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone with the slightest interest in conservation.
Although there was no one to explain what was going on there were a couple of young volunteers who were able to tell us something about the operation here. Entrance is free for Thais, but 60THB for foreigners irrespective as to whether you live in Thailand.
The project consists of a series of holding tanks with turtles ranging from recently hatched to much larger types, some of which, I believe, had been rescued having been caught up in discarded fishing gear or who had tried to eat plastic carrier bags believing them to be jelly fish. They really are fascinating with amazing patterns on their shells. Some had been injured and were receiving “treatment” from one of the volunteers.
Stroll down to the beach to see models of a turtle and a shark made out of plastic bottles washed up onto the beach.
Also on site is a very good cafe which also sells turtle based souvenirs.
Highly recommended.

It was an amazing experience to see the turtles just swimming around and being so majestic and up close to them
They are in pools around the property and there can be a lot of turtles in one pool
I loved just being able to watch them swim around

This is simply a dozen tanks each holding lots of different aged turtles, and that's it no staff and no information on how or what they do at all. (Don't waste valuable holiday time).

A great visit to see the fantastic work that is being done to conserve the turtles
A very knowledgable guide took a
Us around and explained the process for protecting and ensuring the majority of babies survive and on the revue of some injured adults
A bargain at 60 baht each so we left extra donations
