It takes you exactly 10 seconds to go for a swim in crystal clear sea. Surrounded by shallow water you can meet and greet giant turtles, all around you, visiting the beach to find the perfect place to lay their eggs. Derawan is the home to green turtles and the management do work and support John, who is a turtle consultant employed by the WWF. John will be happy to inform anytime the turtles come up the beach to lay their eggs.
