  • A very simple excursion. Book up-front (we did earlier the same day), turn up at the allotted time (in early evening before it gets dark) and get a bucketful each of 16 or so one-week old baby turtles...  more »
  • It was a 15-minute walk from Club Med's facility. When we visited, we were cleaning the water tank. It was only to see without touching the turtle. I thought that it was good to go by the walk level when there was time without expecting so much.

  • Great place for kids to see and learn more about turtle. It's free but you can contribute some money in the contributions box. The gallery shows information on many turtle species. Near the beach where you can walk around.
  • The place definitely feels and looks as its age. The exhibition is interesting as it tells you more about the marine life in Malaysia, although I'm not sure when was this as it definitely hasn't been updated recently. But you go there to see turtles and you're definitely not going to get disappointed. There are 2 adult/adolescent turtles swimming in a small pool and there's a whole bunch of baby turtles at one corner. Definitely a must place to visit and as entrance is free, please help to donate what you can to help their effort in conservation of the local area
