This is a good learning experience for mainly school kids. But no turtles to see, just the area where they are hatched in the sand at the top of the beach. Cost 10 Ringgits for a short tour.

The exhibition is donation based. We had a nice experience here, learning more about the project from two friendly volunteers. Expect to spend about an hour here.
