Hawksbill Turtle Nesting

Our guests may enjoy seeing a turtle nest on our beach and watch the hatchlings make their way into the sea. This is a truly wonderful and unforgettable experience. Hawksbill and Leatherback marine turtles are Critically Endangered while Green marine turtles are Endangered. All marine turtle species have been protected in Barbados since 1998. Most Hawksbill turtles in Barbados nest during the peak season between mid-May through late October. However, nesting has been documented in every month of the year. Many of our hotel guests have witnessed a nesting and hatching event on the Coconut Court beach during the traditional nesting months. It is truly a lifetime experience!
