Chagar Hutang beach was declared as a Turtle Sanctuary in 2005, and the surrounding waters are designated as a marine protected area since 1994. All visitors must obey the Marine Park rules and regulations. Visitors are not allowed to wander around on the nesting beach without supervision from SEATRU staff, as you might accidentally disturb sea turtle nests under incubation. The turtle bay is closed for any activities (boats/snorkelers) after 3.00pm.

The children were so happy when given the opportunity to dig a turtle egg hole and see for themselves how one by one the baby turtles came out of the hole.
