Things to Do

The Bali Sea Turtle Society has garnered loving affection for their work and efforts, especially among the tourists who often visit the beach to participate in the turtle release sessions. You’ll have to wait in a long queue to collect a number that will secure your spot at the release. All volunteer work is welcome by the Bali Sea Turtle Society. Since the releases can be held only after the eggs hatch, there is no fixed schedule for the turtle releases. You can contact them a day prior to inquire about any releases planned for the following day.
