These guys are very passionate about turtles, but make sure you approach them as they are not very outgoing (they are more animal focused offcourse. Nice facility given limited funds they have, they do an amazing job and lots of rescued turtles to be seen there, all with their own story. Must visit if you go to Bali!

The guy who took us around the little center was really nice and answered all questions we had. Then we released a little turtle on the beach next to the center. Short visit but nice to do for a change

Don't expect a fancy place, it's an education centre where they help turtles. The guy that took us around was very helpful and knowledgeable. The baby turtles were very cute. Unfortunately for us they had no turtles of age for release as I was looking forward to adopting one and releasing it. However you can't be too upset when they... More

These guys are doing their best for the turtles of the area and making it very inclusive for the locals too. We got to release a baby sea turtle back into the ocean and my 7-year old son is now planning on becoming a marine biologist. Keep up the good work guys.

Someone told us they would be releasing the turtles and we made our way to kuta beach for the event. A man was explaining the shelter and the conservation of the turtles. There were only 61 turtles on this particular day although there were 4 more clutches to hatch any day. Walking down to the beach with the baby turtles... More

I fed some turtles and saw many big turtles. There is no fee to get in but it's nice if you leave some tips for the centre.

It was very educational for the kids to see the little baby turtles and they where able to adopt a Tuttle and get a certificate. They also got to feed the tortoise's. We would go back next time.

Some of these reviews are not for this place and I'm glad I went to check it out myself rather than relying on the drastically different experiences. First off, you're visiting a facility that is on an island and relies on volunteers and donations so I'm not sure why a lot of people visited expecting a national aquarium type set... More

I have to admit, when I saw this quite basic facility, I didn't think this would be much of an experience, but I was certainly wrong! Ok, the centre is small and there are only about a dozen pools for turtles, but these creatures are either awsome or cute! Well worth a visit! There is no entrance fee, but donations... More

We went to see the baby turtles. From the reviews I thought we would be releasing babies. This only happens on specific days, so my kids were a little disappointed at that. But we did get to hold some, amd feed some so that cheered them up. Very cute. Had a good time. The guide was excellent.
