Sri Lanka is one of the few countries which actively participate in conserving sea turtles, which are an endangered species. There is a multitude of sea turtle hatcheries and rescue centers across the Southern Beach areas, which are open to the public.
During your tour to Sri Lanka, do not forget to visit a sea turtle rescue center to learn how the ex-situ conservation of sea turtles happens in Sri Lanka.
During the season from November to May, you might be lucky to witness the rare sight of sea turtle eggs hatching. Hikkaduwa is one of the most popular beaches to see turtles in their natural environment. Sightings are higher during the morning. Swimming and snorkeling with them would be a wonderful experience during your stay on the paradise island. We welcome you to join Nucifera Tours to be a part of this wonderful moment while ensuring you do not hinder their freedom.
