  • Visited here on a trip, felt very sad and uncomfortable for the turtles, the tanks were dirty, not much water in them, though they said they were changing the water. Supposed to be rescuing them but.....  more »
  • We payed 60 baht pp wich is fair if you think this will contribute to wildlife conservation, but there was no information and we doubt it had anything to do with conservation. We just saw some tanks.....  more »
  • The sea turtle conservatory was wonderful and all the turtles they take care of look very well and clean.  more »

  • This is a turtle conservation. They monitor turtles nest and bring the newborns to a hatchery for 6 months before releasing them to the wild. This gives 10x better chance of survival. We were met by Uncle Jimmy who runs the effort. He is Thai Navy but this is his posting. He does naval exercises on the side. He spent an hour walking us through. He was great with kids and really stimulated their interest in conservation. This is a great cause and inexpensive to see.
  • Had a great couple of hours here. Quite hard to find as it's on a Navy base. Lovely to see the turtles of all ages up close. Nice little cafe for drinks or ice cream by the beach which was good value. Also a great beach to have a walk along with some tiny crabs scurrying around.
  • Although slightly tricky to find after having to find your way through a naval base and show some photo ID to get in, a trip to the turtle sanctuary is certainly worth a visit. At the sanctuary you will find a memorial to tsunami disaster at the spot where a royal naval boat came to its final testing place in-land. The turtles progress through different sized pools as they age and visitors are able to feed the older turtles with slices of cucumber, which they seemed to enjoy!
  • Was there to visit a turtle sanctuary run by them.. good place to see green turtles being taken care of before they are released back to sea. If you're into saving these lovely creatures of the oceans..I would recommend visiting the place to lend a helping hand in support.
  • I came here as part of a days excursion. Both wonderful and sobering. To see how the turtles are nurtured and the growth they achieve was fantastic. However, seeing the beached patrol boat quickly added a real sense of the destruction the area was subjected to. Well worth a visit to see both.
