Rekawa Beach sits just 7km from Tangalle and is highly treasured for the marine turtles that lay eggs here each night. As a result the Turtle Conservation Project protects the beach, however they do let visitors carefully and quietly watch this wonderful natural spectacle.  The nesting normally takes place between 7pm and 3am each night and your knowledgeable guide will take you to the areas where this is most likely. Of the seven species of marine turtles found world wide, five of them can be found here including the green turtle, loggerhead, leatherback, olive ridley and hawksbill. Nesting occurs throughout the year although there’s a distinct peak-nesting season from March to July.
