So we were talked into this tour by our private guide, and had low expectations. HOWEVER...this place is great! The volunteers really care about the turtles, and there are so many other animals there you get to see and interact with (bat, cockatoo, snake, toucan,...More

It's called a farm which isn't ideal. Not really an island where turtles arrive freely as I imagined. It's free but you have to give a "donation" before entering. Few other animals there also- bats, mongoose, turkey, snake, toucan- bit sad to see them in...More

The animals are kept overcrowded in small concrete enclosures. I felt very bad for their welfare. We were only charged 2000 IDR on arrival at the island. The guide was very friendly and seemed satisfied with a 50000 IDR tip.

Nice island just at short speed boat ride from main land. Many turtles can be seen of different species. Few animals and birds are also kept at island. Overall a must visit location.

It was not good. All the animals were coooed up in cages with nothing to do. Not even clean water. The kids were really upset with how sad the animals looked and so were we. Would not go agin.

We went to Turtle Island as part of a snorkeling excursion. I wish I had read the reviews before going. As others have described, this place is horrible. From the moment we got off the snorkeling boat we were asked for a donation which we...More

We foolishly didn't do any research and thought that Turtle Island was a natural habitat. Well, the reality is that it's a tin pot little petting area. It's a disgrace. The animals are manhandled by the 'guides' and I couldn't wait to leave. Had we...More

Actually it is great for the sea turtles. They are helping increase the population and keeping them safe. However, I did feel bad for the other animals there cuz they were in cages.
