TAT Turtle Sanctuary

Tioman Island

TAT (Tengku Arif Temenggung) Turtle Sanctuary is a turtle hatchery and conservation center at Tekek Village, located along the gravel trail to Paya Village after Berjaya Tioman Resort. Hidden on a beautiful secluded beachfront at Teluk Sri Intan Bay, the sanctuary comes under royal patronage of Pahang together with Department of Fisheries Malaysia.

Currently, volunteers from Juara Turtle Project collect the eggs laid during nesting season between March and October, transporting them to their incubation site at Juara, then releasing them back here once hatched. Visitors are free to visit and enjoy the beach at all hours, but should be mindful to keep it clean.
