  • A tourist. We did not have the right to protect the turtles in this way. You pay 1,000 rupees per person and you have a show of poor quality and without aucne explanation. You follow a guide is not a km race to see a turtle (in fact very nice) leave has the water. You see full of traces of other turtles who came to lay eggs and are distributed but as c is very ill-prepared and early you don't see turtles make a hole, lay eggs, and fill him. The worst performance of egg-laying turtles which j attended. Best is to go by his own walk at night on this beach with a red lamp to not scare off turtles.
