Ssshh! Turtles Nesting

Protecting Turtles At Sea Breeze Beach House & South Beach Hotel

Sea Turtles are protected in Barbados as the species is endangered, so we feel privileged that the beach at our resort is a nesting site. Our turtles nest all year round, and during the summer months, mothers visit and lay up to 100 turtle eggs in the sand. It can take 2-4 days for hatchlings to make their way up to the surface, and they usually emerge at night when it's dark.
