Alagadi Turtle Beach is a famous turtle beach, but also a popular beach for both locals and tourists. The beach consists of two bays, one has a restaurant and is always well-attended, while the other bay is a little more secluded and suits those who want a quieter day at the beach. Neither have beach chairs or umbrellas, but you can bring your own beach accessories here.
In the summertime you can see when the sea turtles’ egg hatch on Alagadi Turtle Beach. The volunteer organisation SPOT organises turtle nest excavations and these can be attended if you get a reservation with SPOT. It’s an amazing feeling to be a part of the moment when sandy little hachtlings see the day light for the first time. Or in the evening when you can be part of the group who drops them into the sea!
The places where the turtle’s nests are located on the beach are marked out with white nets so you can’t miss them. You can not put your sun lounger or parasol close to them, as you may risk damaging the nest. For more information about the sea turtle and excavations, contact SPOT on Facebook.
When you are at Alagadi Turtle Beach you should not miss the natural “rock pools” created by the sea where rocks meet sea and where the stones are sanded by the waves. At these “rock pools” the water is heated by the warm Mediterranean sun. Here you can sit still with your feet in the warm waters and look out over the scenic coast.
