What to Expect?

Padang Kemunting's Turtle Conservation & Information Centre (TCIC) was established in 1990 and is managed by the Department of Fisheries Melaka. This was set up as an effort towards turtle conservation and to monitor the landing of turtles in the Melaka Beach. The establishment conducts activities regarding protection, conservation and management of hawksbill turtle in Melaka.

There are 2 sections of this center. The main building consists of an Information Center where one can get much information about the efforts of the center in keeping the turtles specifically Hawksbill species from extinction. There is a pool at the back of the building where one can see hawksbill turtles.

The other section of this center is on the beach across the main building. Guests can find fenced up areas where turtle eggs are buried. According to the center, those eggs are mostly collected from the long stretch of the beach and buried within the fenced up area to be protected from being taken away or eaten by birds, reptiles and from humans.

The visitation to this center can be within one hour depends on how long you would like to spend especially at the beach area. The center is open from Tuesdays to Sundays from 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM and 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM. They are closed on Mondays and public holidays.

    Not able to review properly as it was closed on a Raya public holiday. Hope to return again. The beach is not top rated, but tranquility is there. The small alley turning to the center is a one way alley, so be sure not to turn into the one before or after it or u may run into a catch-22 traffic situation if there is a coming traffic.
