Arrival at Tangalle/Rekawa Turtle Observation Camp.
Eco Team conducts 'Turtle Watch' programme on the Tangalle/Rekawa beach where visitors can observe the ancient ritual of turtles coming ashore and laying eggs. Five out of the seven species of marine turtles that are familiar (but endangered) come to nest in this part of the Sri Lankan coastline, making it an ideal location to marvel at one of nature's most fascinating processes!
Located very close to the Rekawa beach itself, the ECO TEAM TURTLE OBSERVATION CAMP is an ideal location to be based for Turtle Watching because the staff can do the waiting for you - waking you up when the turtles have arrived! Forget any ideas about cramped tents and sitting on the ground for meals - this is camping in style! The camp is set up prior to your arrival, transporting in comfortable tents, a fully equipped kitchen, chairs and tables, hammocks, flushable toilets, showers and even cold beer. In the evening you can enjoy a hearty barbecue meal in a magical setting - the whole area is lit up with traditional flame torches and a roaring campfire. So sit back, relax and let our experienced staff cater to your every need.
Lunch at the Campsite.
Evening at leisure and learn more about Turtles.
Late Evening ( 8.00pm ) turtle watching on beach (guests can choose to stay in the camp and then be woken up when staff have spotted turtles).
