This place gives interesting facts about ocean furtles and tortoises. The turtles live in a nice pool which is equipped with a huge clean concave obersavtion window. We enjoyed watching their feeding and social behaviour.

The Kelonia Turtle Center has lots of turtles and quite informative pannels, but it is not very attractively presented and stays under the expectations. Ok, if it's a rainy day to pass time, but no more.

This is such a cute aquarium where you can get up close to the turtles. It is completely dedicated to the rehabilitation and education of the plight of turtles. Entrance isn’t expensive at all - less than a Big McMeal. Definitely worth the visit!

Had a great few hours in Kelonia, I would recommend for families with children or adults. There are indoor and outdoor exhibitions. There are great underground viewing tanks where you can watch the turtles swim.

Plentiful of information about all kinds of turtles! Large aquarium with huge sea turtles! Less attractive for young kids, but still great to see those giant sea creatures! Good to stop there when you are in the area! Nice juice bar with refreshing choices

€7 for adults - didn’t really look at the price for children unfortunately.
