La caletta delle tartarughe
The bay is the rehab area created to keep under control the convalescence of the turtles.The rehab area, named “the bay” is located in the surroundings of the Frati seashore between the beach resorts “Eden Gigli” and “La Spiaggiola”.
The bay is the ideal place to keep an eye on the recovering turtles. Here the water is deep enough and the turtles can manage to immerse themselves, moreover there are many marine species that are useful for their nourishment (fishes, shellfishes and sometimes jellyfishes) and the water visibility help the volunteers to control the turtles.
In the bay there will be a marine biologist ready to answer all the visitor questions and to give detailed information about the biology of the turtles and environmental wealth
