Not far from one of our favourite resorts in Malaya, Tanjong Jara Resort, is a protected beach where the endangered beach green turtles come ashore to lay their eggs.

These beautiful turtles are coming on to the beach now and until mid September. Guests have the chance to have a guided tour of the beach to watch this amazing event. Because these turtles are so rare, the eggs are taken to a hatchery to protect them from predators – human or otherwise.

Later in the season lucky guests at Tanjong Jara Resort can help with the release of the newly hatched be returned to the sea.
