Big Island


Sri Lanka offers great opportunities to spot turtles nesting or swimming near the coast.Five of the seven species of sea turtles come ashore to nest in Sri Lanka.Rekawa, near Tangalle, is an excellent place where you can observe turtles nesting.It’s an inexpensive activity.You can take a tuk-tuk from Tangalle at night and go to Rekawa Turtle Observation Camp, pay the fees there,and then a guide will take you with a group of other people to see the turtles nesting.When a turtle is spotted you must keep a distance and be silent cause turtles could feel stress and avoid to nest there.Flash is not allowed as well,that’s why i couldn’t take a decent shot to post in my blog. 261 more words

Gili Islands: Exploring

From Lombok we took a 30-minute fast boat to Gili Trawangan, one of the three Gili islands off of Lombok’s northwest coast.
