Foreign tourists who come to Bali usually want to spend time sunbathing on the beach. Not only that, these Westerners also like playing with turtles at Tanjung Benoa.
When it comes to Tanjung Benoa, usually tourists will spend time playing water sports. Some of the water sports are generally played these Westerners from various countries are diving, snorkeling, parasailing, jet skiing and more.
But there are other things to offer Tanjung Benoa, the Turtle Island travel. For the first time I heard his name might be wondering, why are they called Turtle Island?
The reason is, the naming of Turtle Island due to the turtle breeding activities that were there. Tourists who come can freely look cute turtles there, but by paying a levy first course.
To reach the Turtle Island, tourists should first cross the ocean for about 30 minutes. Along the way, the eye will be presented with a view of the open sea and row boats are also into Turtle Island.
Typically, timber ships carrying tourists to have a basic glass or so-called bottom glass. This glass allows you to see into the sea floor inhabited a variety of fish and beautiful coral reefs.
Blowing winds and aroma of the sea will accompany the journey to Turtle Island. Occasional splashes of sea water into the face of the inevitable. So abundant sunlight was blinding sometimes.
After 30 minutes passed, the ship slowly landed on the beach crowded. Not far from there, seen a large door with the words "Welcome to Turtle Farm".
With one of the guides directly friendly welcome every tourist who comes. Before entering, you are asked to pay a levy fee of IDR 5000 / person. After paying, then you can go around the turtle breeding area.
Once past the entrance, visitors are immediately confronted with a large lined pond that is filled full of adult turtles. The number of tourists who saw the pool was no less dense fill the pond with turtles.
Most turtles are bred there is a type of green sea turtles (Chelonia mydas). Start of hatchlings (baby turtles) up to a dozen years-old turtle there.
Not only domestic tourists, it turns out the number of foreign tourists who saw turtles too much. With their enthusiasm lifted the turtle and take a pictures together.
Moving to another pool, tourists are allowed to down directly and catch turtles. The foreign tourist seemed more enthusiastic, though occasionally heard screams.
However, in the pool on this one, it seems like there is a strong tourist raised turtles. Obviously, the pool of devoted travelers can enter the old turtle is quite old. Even so, do not reduce the excitement to play with this reptile
