Rekawa’s Sea Turtles at Night

The beach at Rekawa village, 10km east of Tangalle, is home to one of the most important sea turtle nesting sites in Sri Lanka, visited by five different species which lay their eggs in the sand here every night throughout the year. The best time to see turtles is between January and April; periods when there's a full moon. This beach has recorded as many as 23 turtles nesting in one night.
