Loggerhead turtle nests on The Reef beach

Our nest!

Our nest!

Great excitement amongst staff and guests at The Reef today! Keen eyed staff members noticed the tell-tale signs earlier this week and the Department of Environment have just confirmed that we have a loggerhead turtle nest on our beach.

The mama turtle will have hatched many years ago on this same stretch of white sand and has returned and nested right in front of the hotel.

We are terribly proud of our nest and are constructing a bamboo fence around it to keep it safe.

In 55 days time, on or around th 5th of August, staff and guests will dim all the lights, ensure that each tiny turtle makes its way safely to the water and then celebrate the fact that, safely launched into the big wide world, they will one day travel back to us.
