  • Its a place where you can actually learn about the different speaces of turtles, the ticket you pay helps to keep going with their tasks...its a must in Hikkaduwa. Jose bcn 
  • inexpensive and enjoyable. all for a very good cause. you can pick up the turtles while you are there, but i am not sure how much they like it. bloke that runs it is very nice. 
  • Not worth 500 rs. I definitely expected a bigger place with more turtles for this price. They have approximately 10 backets with different turtles (small and big ones) and a small turtle cementary.
