Caretta Caretta Sea Turtle

Live a magic moment on a hot summer night

Caretta-Caretta sea turtle

Caretta-Caretta sea turtle (loggerhead turtle) is the only species of Mediterranean sea-turtles that nests in Crete and Greece. Sea turtles are reputed to be strongly philopatric, and always return to the same beach they were born on to lay their own eggs.

Caretta-Caretta sea turtle is an endangered species and it needs the help of us all.

The Sea Turtle Protection Society of Greece initiated an intensive tagging program in 1982 and is doing a great job so far. After initial surveys carried out between 1989-1990, ARCHELON identified significant numbers of nests along some of the beaches of Crete. Nest protection and monitoring as well as public awareness activities were started in 1990. Ever since, ARCHELON has been running a project in the three most important nesting areas of the island, Rethymnon and Chania.

You may witness and live magic moments during the summer nights when the eggs hatch. It is an  unforgetable moment.

You can by all means book this great villa in the Sfakaki area, just a few minutes walk from the turtles beach. Take advantage of all the amenities of the area, while being jsut a few minutes drive to Rethymno town.
