Turtle Hatchery A Sanctuary by the Sea

The tropical island paradise of Sri Lanka is famous for her natural miracles. This is why excursions in Sri Lanka are bound to have you coming back for more. The period between September – November is the turtle-nesting season, which sees 5 of the 7 species of sea turtles waddling towards the southern coast of Sri Lanka to lay their eggs for the next generation.

Located 35 km from the Villas, the Sea Turtle Farm and Hatchery is a non-profit organization that helps ensure the next generation of sea turtles survive the hazards of poaching and other environmental concerns. Witness the organization’s commendable work by touring the facility and catch a glimpse of the tiny baby turtles paddling about their large cement tanks.

You are also welcome to be a part of this worthy cause by donating to the facility. Or prepare for a night watch as the wonders of nature unfold outside of the Villa, when the majestic sea turtle merges to lay her precious cargo.
