It was right at our resort. Fun to watch especially during the meal feeding. Some turtles are impressive by their size. Interesting attraction for kids and adults. I read some reviews where people were saying they could swim with the turtles. However, it wasn't the case during our stay. The staff even said it's been forbidden for a while because they notice it's stressful for the turtles.

“Up close and personal!”

This was not a polished facility but a true working simple conservation effort. The turtles were all brought there injured, then they are brought back to health and released. They are beautiful!
