Experiences

Turtle Egg Laying & Hatching

Catch a sunset stroll on the beach and some dinner before the show begins. After dark, the female turtles come ashore to lay their eggs, which park guides will permit you to watch from a safe distance. Afterwards, tour the hatchery where the eggs are taken after being left by their mothers, to protect the hatchlings of this endangered species from predators such as monitor lizards. If you're lucky, you may get to witness the tiny turtles emerging from their shells and there may even be a chance to hold one.
