WE were told about this place by other guests of the hotel, and we tool the kids to visit on our last day in Bali. It is nothing fancy, there is no cost to get in as it relies purely on donations. But it was really worthwhile going and our guide spoke very good English and had a lot of... More

Do not confuse if there is any animal other than turtle you are at the wrong place! This place is small & almost hidden behind a tourist bus parking lot. But for us it was a highlight of our recent trip! This place is run by volunteers & is donation based, you are never asked for money & never feel... More

This was according to our kids their best experience of Bali so far! A small rescue centre, which relies on donations rather than an entrance fee. We saw the hatchery, 1 month old turtles, 1 year old turtles and various other larger turtles that were in there waiting to be given the all clear from illnesses or injuries for release.... More

We arrived whilst there was a huge amount of school children there learning about the turtles but we were still greeted by a friendly staff member who showed us all around and explained the running of the centre, There wasn't a lot of smaller turtles there as it's the off season but we still found it very informative and loved...

A worthwhile place to visit as this centre is doing a wonderful job trying to promote turtle conservation. The turtles are great to see, and the kids enjoyed feeding the little ones. The entry fee is just a donation.

From eggs to the rescued injured turtle, it was a great place to learn anything about turtles! My boys were very happy to feed the younger ones!

Nice opportunity to get very close up views of the turtles. Pay 200,000 to collect a baby turtle, name it and release it.
