Turtle Island in South Lebanon?

Hey I've heard rumors that there is an island around the south thats famous for masses of Sea Turtles nesting there. Does anyone know about this, could anyone direct me on how to go there and when to see the turtles? I've also heard that lots of sea turtles nest at the Palm Islands Heritage Site around Tripoli, does anyone know if I can see the turtles nesting there?

Thanks

Hi,

Sea turtles nest at the Tyre Nature Sea Reserve not far from the Rest House hotel and Tyros restaurant.

They also nest at the Palm Island Heritage Site just around half an hour by boat off Tripoli coast, visiting those group of island is only allowed between June and September.
