Visit to a Turtle Hatchery
Kosgoda Beach, a 20-minute drive north of the hotel, is one of Sri Lanka’s most important nesting grounds for marine turtles. This is a small but tidy hatchery. You’ll be guided around to see baby, juvenile and adult turtles – these will be a mix of green (most commonly seen), olive ridley and leatherback species.
There is also a small museum and your donation (if you choose to donate) will go towards protecting local turtles.
