Grenada is host to four of the world’s seven varieties of turtles – the largest being the 5ft -7ft Leatherback turtle with its bony shell. Endangered is the small Hawksbill turtle, with its very beautiful shell.
The season for watching turtles laying their eggs begins on 1st April and runs through to the end of June. Tours run nightly, in season.
To help support the efforts of the turtle conservation projects, and for a thrilling moonlit experience seeing the turtles come ashore, it is best to book with a specialist tour company on the island. Specto Turtle Nestling Tours.
