Well I am late to share about this place actually. But if you're a tourist in the UAE, stop by—its free! On your way, you will find the Wild wadi water theme park!
You can enter through the luxurious Jumeirah Al Naseem hotel to get here. Down the road you will find a free parking. Or, you could enter through the Souk Madinat Jumeirah which is paid parking. This is nearby too.
The turtle lagoon is just 1 little pool and is located inside the hotel and mostly surrounded by several restaurants. Take your children if you have any.
If you wish to get a turtle feeding experience, give a call and know the schedule. Come early in the day or before six o'clock in the evening for the best view.
There will be crowds all night long since there are so many eateries around. You can spend anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour here.
Nearby tourist locations in Jumeirah!
In the morning, go to the turtle lagoon, and if you haven't already, go to the Burj al Arab. Even consider scheduling a trip to the Wild Wadi water theme park! These two locations would be paid tourist attractions. If you want to do something free, you can also go through the Souk Madinet Jumeirah. You can make reservations to eat here, do some local shopping here, and catch live entertainment in the evening. There are a few good eateries with an outdoor experience. Or have a little abra tour!
During our visit, we could spot 4 turtles. One was badly injured and was rescued by the team. The turtles were quite friendly, and they would come near to you as soon as they see you. I had a good time. Hope you will too. There are no reservations required and the area is always open to the public for free. Check the schedule for the weekly feedings that are open to everyone on Turtle Island.
