Description

The public interface for the DTRP is our outdoor turtle rehabilitation enclosure located at the JUMEIRAH AL NASEEM hotel. The enclosure is open to the public every day of the week; there is no need to book, and there is no charge. Our enclosures are located in the TURTLE LAGOON. We have scheduled feedings starting at TURTLE ISLAND (in the centre of the bridge) at 11 am every Wednesday (without exception) that anyone is welcome to join; feeding takes about 20 minutes. Access to the TURTLE LAGOON is only made through the lobby of the JUMEIRAH AL NASEEM HOTEL; there is metred parking outside on beach road, free parking for two hours in the Madinat Souq car park (approximately a 10-minute walk away) or you can valet park, but you will need to buy a coffee or something similar, otherwise there will be a charge.
