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.

The center is located at Padang Kemunting 78300 Masjid Tanah Melaka Malaysia. They can be reached via mobile number +6019-6328253 or +601-6443925 or via phone number +06-384 6754.

    Parkings inside the premise can be challenging as the entrance is quite narrow, overall takes about 30 - 45 minutes to complete the whole journey.
    Only few turtles on display.
    Free entry, free parking ?

    Around 40 mins away from Jonker street but it worth the travel. You can look at the turtle in very short distance and there are alot of small turtles here too!
    Free admission, the place is quite small and around 10 minutes you can finish the visit but my kid took 20 mins to watch the turtles in the pool. The beach there is clean and the sea is blue. Definitely will come again next time ❤
