Before we arrived we had read reviews of turtle island and made sure this conservation and education programme was not in any way cruel or a money making machine. The site is small and takes only 30 mins to see and hear everything. There are...More

These people do amazing work! The staff is super friendly and speak good english. Be aware that this is not a zoo, so don’t expect a lot of animals and a petting zoo! It’s real conservation, helping turtles overcome the dangers they face from humans....More

Definitely worth a trip, you can't help but come away feeling a tad sad for the larger ones who can not be released into the wild again due to their injuries (usually human related!). They hatch eggs here too, and you can sponsor a turtle...More

It was a good place, but pushed for buying souvenirs at a high price. We were told the swimming pool would be free, but it sure wasn't.

I paid to have two turtles released but the opportunity to go with them to the beach no longer exists, although this seems temporary. Access to the beach is blocked due to roadwork so you pay but then leave with just a certificate. Best put...More

Been to so many places that claim to care about conservation but haven’t, but here they do. You can tell by the Educational talks they give and their interest in the animals they care for. As many of the reviews mention, there’s no entry fee...More

You can go anytime during the day, they are open every day. Better to go in the morning, early afternoon and not leave it for late otherwise you will be in a hurry and don't have time to go around.

The turtles are released depending on when the eggs hatch and therefore there is no set day. When it does happen they will make an announcement on Kuta beach at about 4 or 5 pm which can be heard from a distance. You go to... More
