The sanctuary is small but demonstrates the work they are doing for the turtles. There are some tanks on public display. Others not, although staff allowed me to take my son to this area to have a look.

We got lucky on the way back to our camper and managed to slip in a few minutes before it closed. Would loved to have time to go back properly, but it was brilliant to see what we did in the short space of time.

Disappointed that this wasn't open, there were no signs to say why it was closed. Lots of other disappointed visitors there, we could only see the tops of a couple of turtles. Don't make a special journey to go as it may be closed 😕

we weren't expecting too much, but still got disappointed. Only one pool (out of about 14) is open for visitors. There's display about turtles in the region. It's free of charge.

You can watch different stages of breeding young turtles and growing them up before they are given back to their natural environment in the Atlantic Ocean.

We visited here one lunch time. Ok so it’s not a big day out, but you get to see turtles close up and it is all for a good cause. I think it’s great that they are doing so much to help the conservation of...More
