Best Beaches of the World: Rekawa Beach, Sri Lanka
The beach at Rekawa village, 10km east of Tangalla Bay Beach, is home to one of the most important sea turtle nesting sites in Sri Lanka, visited by five different species that lay their eggs in the sand here every night throughout the year.

The best time to see turtles is between January & April; periods when there's a full moon. Fullish moons too are good throughout the year because there are both more turtles & more light to see them by. Rekawa has recorded 23 turtles in one night. We will see at least a couple of turtles every night.

We wait long hours on the pitch-black beach. At last, one arrives at midnight crawling across the beach, away from the sea. On its path, it leaves a remarkable trail that looks like a one-wheeled tractor has driven straight up out to the sea. It's an agonizingly slow crawl exhausting half an hour by a creature not adapted to the land. Having reached the top of the beach, the turtle then spent about another 45 minutes digging an enormous hole. The silence of midnight is broken by periodic thrashing & sound of great clouds of sand being scuffed up. As the turtle begins to lay eggs, we can get close to watch, although all we can see is the turtle's backside with eggs looking just like ping-pong balls-periodically popping out in twos & threes. The turtle then rests, fills in the hole & eventually crawls back down to the sea. It's an epic effort, the sight of which makes the whole evening-long experience worthwhile.

In the absence of a government-sponsored project, the turtle eggs are then taken to be re-buried in a secure location, by the villagers who make a basic living from entertaining tourists. These creatures have acted as a rare bridge between marine & terrestrial ecosystems for 100 million years, enriching both as they steadfastly undertake their remarkable two-realm life cycle. We refuse to buy eggs for consumption. We refuse to buy turtle products.
