Plentiful of information about all kinds of turtles! Large aquarium with huge sea turtles! Less attractive for young kids, but still great to see those giant sea creatures! Good to stop there when you are in the area! Nice juice bar with refreshing choices

Good for kids to get some basic notions on ecology and on turtles and to approche them. But for adults a bit a waste of time. But interesting to help the turtles care unit and rehab.

The turtles are very well cared, it's not an aquarium because they use to return the turtles to the sea when they are sane. We needed an english guide, they don't have... And we didn't see the little turtles, it would be a unique thing!...More

A very well run facility, with lots of displays and informative signs. Unfortunately they're all in French, so makes understanding the descriptions a problem if you don't speak French

I have been to few turtles sanctuary in Malaysia, compare to those, it is more organize and well facilitated, all the turtles are well taking care. However I just feel like the turtles are no more freedom, and being locked in the big "pool" to...More
