Kalpitiya and Rekawa are the shores where the turtles tend to nest. You need to keep in mind that you can approach turtles only during their nesting period. Only at that time they are in a trance-like state and are not getting nervous when seeing people. You should be really careful with them, since they are considered to be endangered species that need special care and protection.
