Become a witness to the birth of tiny sea turtles and watch their first broken path to the sea.
How to watch the birth of the sea turtles in Phuket
The National park is just 90 square meters. It’s territory includes four beaches with pure white sand. This natural preserve is very popular among tourists, who can’t help but be attracted to the purity of the untouched coastline, which is the main nesting ground for giant sea turtles.



Here you will find a unique opportunity to watch the birth of tiny sea turtles, and to follow their path to the sea for the first time through all the hurdles. This happens between November and March, when the turtles arrive at Mai Khao beach in order to breed the new generation of its kind.



If you’re lucky enough to witness the birth of little sea turtles, you should be very careful. It is forbidden to bother the animals, to touch the turtles or eggs in any way at all. Breaking any rules in this National Park will incur massive fines.

Where to do?
