  • Totally worth a visit! We were shown around first and our guide told us something to each turtle. Then we were allowed to take small tortoises on the hand. Then we have decided to adopt a turtle, these we were able to find and then release into the sea. That was a super nice moment! As a reminder we got a certificate and a small souvenir then ;)

  • Only by chance, we were in the turtle Center. The admission is free. At the reception you get a guide assigned to which one orbital. The guide tells the story, which is behind this one to each turtle. Partly been a little sad when you see these great animals. All the more I pronounce my respect the employees for their work. The donation box should be none. On the one hand, it is very a pity that since no more tourists go (because that leave the money) but it is likely intention so that the animals are not as stressed out.

  • Good intentions to look after and research the turtles. Think of this as a hospital not a play ground. Many turtles may never leave the centre but they are well looked after. Local uni students involv...  more »

  • Perfect for a quick visit. No entrance fee, they just for donation. Many types of turtles and knowledgeable guides to tell you how they are saved and looked after. Recommended.
  • This place is awesome and to enter it is free of charge and you can donate if you want to! The best is that u get to adopt a turtle for 150,000 idr per turtle and release it in the ocean! You also get a certificate for participating in the releasing program! Really recommend this place as it is clean and comfortable!
  • I have read several reviews before deciding to visit this place. After passing alluring sandy beach road, I managed to get in this turtle sanctuary despite confusing route. Not a huge place but public facilities such as canteen and toilet is well maintained. The turtles are well preserved, kudos to fellow keepers. However you are not allowed to touch any creature, but pictures or selfies are welcome. There is also a couple of guides, eggs exhibition, and turtle feeding ground should you want a direct experience of turtle feeding.
  • The center is really small, but it is very interesting to listen the employees who can tell a different story about every single turtle. We were able to feed turtles and spend there one hour as we had many questions about different species. Center asks only donations.
  • I'm currently teaching my kids about the ill effects of plastic pollution and the need to care for marine life, so we found this center very educational and informative. The staff is incredibly kind and friendly to kids. We saw many sick sea turtles who are being rehabilitated for pollution and hatchlings that have been rescued. This center is run by donations only and we were happy to make a donation to support the great work they're doing. Highly recommend this stop while in Sanur!
