This information center is built 100 meters from Gerakas beach, a popular nesting beach for turtles, and has been designed to inform visitors about the wildlife of the area and sustainable tourism with interesting and informative displays. Here you can learn about the local marine populations and get updated on current sea turtle nest counts. The information center is open every day from May-October from 9:00 to 20:00 and is free of charge. Please note, the centre is not a zoo and there is no guarantee that you will see specific animals during your visit.

Gerakas and the information centre are just a short taxi journey from most places on the island, or you can ask your tour operator for details of their organised visits. Full car park facilities available.

Come and visit our center and use our ‘sand saver showers’ to wash off any sand you bring back from Gerakas Beach! The founder developed beach erosion intervention methods, including the ‘sand saver showers’ system located at the center, which filters the sand from the water to be collected and returned to the beach at the end of the season.
