We visited (2 families with 5 children, aged 5-14) the turtle nursery and had a lovely time. One of the army volunteers came to talk to us about the project, and it is very impressive to see their dedication with little resources, and the positive...More

It’s been going since 1994 and it is a bit run down but the impact on turtle conservation in the Andaman Sea is amazing. Well done to the Royal Thai Navy for keeping this important project going and the money given by tourism helps to...More

The Thai Navy is doing a great job trying to save these beautiful turtles. Definitely recommend visiting here with a guide - there is not much interaction from the center staff.

A small taxi or tuk tuk ride from town, a good way to spend a few hours if you're not feeling to adventurous. Offers some very interesting facts on turtles and conservation.

Don’t think there is a set time, but worth a visit as there are so many turtles and the work they do is amazing. Probably only need about 1 - 1/2 hours to see. We got a taxi and fairly cheap.
