  • A place we should all visit especially with young kids to see the work of the rescue centre and try to contribute as volunteers or financially. The rescue centre is situated in a quiet area by the sea with a lot of parking options. Even exactly out of the property there is a municipality parking and street parking is available as well. For the visitors using public means of transportation there is a tram station at very close walking distance. There is no entrance fee but there is a nice shop you can buy interesting items or donate. The tour is around 20 minutes but you can call and arrange your booking especially if you visit as a group.
  • We found this place by chance after taking a tram trip down to the coast. On going in we were met by one of the volunteers who gave us a personal tour which was very informative. There is a small exhibition showing the migratory patterns of turtles detected by GPS tracking, and a selection of fish hooks and other objects which they have extracted from turtles' stomachs. They take in sick and injured turtles which are found by coast guards and rehabilitate them.
