This information centre 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 centre 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.
