  • In the month of december is not easy to see the turtles. The season begins in January. In Tangalle, we spent 8 days out of it, we tried to see turtles, up to 2 times on the third time I have succeeded. When the full moon of the month. It's nature isn't the circus so all we see a turtle in its natural habitat it:) is the best thing you can do, and to promote conservation as well financially. Ochranári tried to ensure the well being of the turtles. Manažovali people have distance and minimum interrupting the turtle. A couple of people were really very chlúpich. A girl from the country, have allowed her to go to Turtle nememovanej meškalo and she began to take pictures with a Flash. IF YOU ARE NOT SURE THAT YOU HAVE TURNED ON THE FLASH, TRY TO GET IT OUT OF THE FIRST TURTLES AND NOT IMMEDIATELY POINTED ME TO IT. People and friends of her hands and sent her away immediately downloaded. The Flash is fine. I hope that he has paid. Next, a small group of people set fire to a cigarette, also were immediately sent off. The fact niektorlí are really stupid or selfish tourists. When the tortoise began to subside and crawl to the sea, all the time that we did not do the turtle manažovali us stress. People budťe really quietly, do not smoke, turn off the Flash. With children under 6 years of age according to me you're well aware. To not disturb turtle children. On the beach you can spend 3 h. Take to the water. Insect repellent against moskytom to paint in advance. When the turtle into the sea as she was the same woman again was captured it with Flash. Ospravedlňovala, but for us to remain trápnou. The shame! I asked if I can take a picture with Flash is track after crawling. They said that I still have to wait even if the turtle was already in the sea. Apparently I can scare the other turtle that just arrived. We were satisfied with the management and the work of environmentalists and we gave them about 1500 rupees more than the subsidy. In Sri Lanka there are only 2 such beaches and the rest are water tank which is not the happiest idea. Most Chinese in the soup and green turtle pojedajú-kožatka huge amazing creature die after eat plastic bags since its food bags are jellyfish and jellyfish in the sea as vyzeraju. Sri Lanka is full of garbage, and I do not know what the Government intends to do. Plastics would be banned in such countries as nerecyklujú. Thank you for reading.

  • For viewing the turtles need to pay 1000rp. There was one, there is nothing to see. I believe that once again the Ceylonese claimed put Buda, they hired 20osob and get money for what nature intended.

  • A night walk on the beach - under expert guidance and in respectful silence then the great turtle in their gruelling egg storage and its subsequent, laborious return March into the sea to watch - an unforgettable experience!
