Some of the turtle species that we can find are green turtles, olive ridley turtles, hawksbill turtles, flat turtles, loggerhead turtles, leatherback turtles. Pengumbahan Beach still has a lot of lush trees making it a suitable place for sea turtles to lay eggs because of the cool air. It is recommended to come around August to March here if you want to see the turtles laying their eggs.

There are 6 observation posts provided to observe the activity of the mother turtle in laying eggs. Each post contains a collection of tourists with a certain number that is limited so as not to be noisy and interfere with the turtle laying process. If you want to approach a turtle laying eggs, you have to wait until the turtle has dug a hole and released the eggs. The reason is that turtles are easily surprised when they see light and might not lay eggs. Meanwhile, if it has released an egg, whatever happens around it, the turtle will not care.

In addition to the temperature factor, the cleanliness factor must also be considered. Both play a role in the egg laying process. Turtles that have dug a hole to lay their eggs will stop digging if they find debris while digging. It might also interfere with the laying process.

Tips for tourists who come to see turtles, bring a jacket because the beach night is cold, moreover we can spend up to 3 hours waiting for the turtles to lay eggs, and secondly, don’t forget to provide food in the bag to fill your stomach anytime you are hungry because it’s midnight there are no shops open here.
