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
This place was awesome. My girlfriend and I didn't expect much when we went there but for a short drive from Sanur it was totally worth it. We saw loads of turtles, big and small and we even got to adopt one! An experience that...More
Entrance is free and we we're able to adopt baby turtles for IDR 150,000 each. You receive an adoption certificate, turtle bracelet and pick your turtles.
We didn't release the turtles as they are released at 5am the next day but the people at the...More
This was my favourite activity of the whole holiday! Such a beautifully run place with genuinely passionate, caring and knowledgeable volunteers. It was quiet when we went, so we had a volunteer to ourselves who showed us around the centre (it's only small so doesn't...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
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

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 the Bali Sea Turtle Society site opposite the beach, pay and get a turtle in a container to release. When everyone has their turtle they proceed down to the water, line up and let the turtles go under supervision. This can all take a bit of time as they are quite disorganised but worth the experience. Look at the Bali Sea Turtle Society FaceBook page for the latest, if you are in Kuta though just pop in and ask them. If you walk to the beach via Kuta Market turn right before you hit the sand and walk along the path and you will find the Turtle Society on your right.
