As others have said, this is a wonderful conservation center where local volunteers are working hard to conserve sea turtles. For us (two adults and one child) the visit was pure magic. It was wonderful seeing all the baby turtles and releasing our three selected baby turtles into the ocean. While we were there, hundreds of Balinese school children were learning about sea turtle conservation. It is a great spot, with ties to WWF, that is worth supporting and a highlight of our trip. It is a quick ride from Sanur (15 min) - no need to go on an organized trip. Hop in a taxi or get a driver to take you there - but make sure you are at a place that clearly says TCEC and is associated with WWF. If they ask for an entry fee or if there are small enclosures, you are in the wrong place!
All the low star reviews on this listing are referring to a tourist trap located nearby - there are no small enclosures or photo ops at this center. This is a true conservation center that rescues turtle eggs from the busy nearby beaches so they have a chance of hatching and survival. A great opportunity for tourists to support local leaders and local conservation and have a great time doing it! They also provide volunteer opps for those interested.
