  • This is the only turtle sanctuary in the world!!! A must see!!! Visit costs xcd15 per adult.. (fee goes towards upkeep) see turtles up close and understand what it takes to keep them safe and keep this sanctuary going.. PS: this is located in INDUSTRY BEQUIA
  • This was an extremely interesting place to visit. I have never seen so many turtles in one place. It was great to see the baby ones. The man who runs the Sanctuary clearly has a genuine passion for what he does. It is a good idea to get an open air taxi to see the Sanctuary as it is an extremely scenic drive.
