  • This is one of the worst places I have seen. They call it eco tourism and keep the animals caged. Turtles are kept in tanks.. I wonder why these are not let back to the ocean. There is nothing...

  • Fantastic experience to see and hear about the wonderful volunteers who protect the endangered turtles. They feed them with money that visitors donate. They show you them from young babies to the bigger ones. They return them to the sea when their shells are hard and they have much more of a chance of surviving from predators. You can hold them and feed them. They eat seaweed which they can pay for with money in donation box. Also have other animals such as birds and a big python you can hold. You can purchase bintans and soft drinks The place is so worth visiting Boats take you to island only short 10 minute trip.
  • Good place to visit for the first time as tourist, you get to directly get close or hold the turtles. Watersport people include this in their packages the boat that takes you there is said to be of a glass floor bus it's not rather than a very small rectangular glass floor window which is mostly covered with algae and obstructing the sea bed view that you were promised while selling the ticket. The species kept here are taken well care of. You can hold almost most of the species there. In the end when the friendly animal care taker who will ask you to donate money!!! The place is only good if you are an animal lover nothing wow here.
  • This is must be the saddest place in Bali🥲 I should have searched for this place before I go. I didn’t have plans for today, only thinking to bring my kids out for a boat ride.. When we arrived, I found that this is just another corner of Nusa Dua, not at all an island for viewing wild turtles that roam freely! It’s more like a private zoo that a group of people trying to make fortunes through capturing those animals. Though my kids enjoy a lot (they love all kinds of animals of course), I hope those animals can be released soon. I didn’t donate much because I really don’t know whom I’m really helping with. I totally don’t know why they have to keep so many turtles inside their place. I will never ever come back again. What I can do is to write reviews and blogs to give alert to more people 😭.. What is worst, there are MORE this kind of places after I searching around this place with google map.. 😭😭😭
  • The place feels like animal abuse and there seems to not have any standart in taking care of the animal. If the animal will be moved to a bigger and much more healthier enviroment after display (of course the display time must be at standart) this review is wrong. And no maintenance
  • TOURIST TRAP!! Please do your research before coming here. 1. Its not a different island, as its connected to the main Bali island. I rent boat to to go there for RP. 500K, but I didn't know it was connected. 2. I didn't do my research so I thought 'turtle Island' is where turtles are roaming around freely. But no they are kept in small muddy water. It was very sad to see. It was almost like unkept zoo. There were other animals too like monkey and bats and they were kept in a small cage as well. 3.There was a snake and his mouth was being taped. His skin was roughed. 4. There was an owl kept in the sun, there is a chain in his feet as well This is the worst place I ever came to Bali. T And sadly there is nothing I can do beside writing review. They shouldnt have commercialised this kind of business, please pleaseee just look for something else rather than using these animals for profit. So, if you visit Bali, DON'T come here.
