Hotel Updates: Chalets d' Anse Forbans

Great Beginnings for Chalets d' Anse Forbans - The First Turtle Hatchlings for 2016

It was just another beautiful sunrise while our clients enjoyed the morning having the morning stroll on the beach and breakfast in the tropical garden. However, this morning was not going to be just another day at Chalet d' Anse Forbans. For this special morning that will remain in the memory of all our guests making their holiday in the Seychelles that bit more memorable.

The Scene Unfolds

Hawksbill turtle hatchlings had emerged from their nest and where making their way to the ocean but had headed in the wrong direction and now were all over the garden of Chalets d' Anse Forbans. Guests got together and searched the area for them. All the hatchlings were then placed in a secure large container so they could be released together at high tide.

A Very Special Experience

 Guests where amazed and delighted, excited and overwhelmed. One of our guests said it was a dream come true!  Once the tide was high enough, guests and management all got together to prepare the beach for the release of the turtles. Guests and their children just stood in awe watching these amazing tiny creatures as they made their way to the ocean - sense it - then dash in for the start of their life long journey. 

Female turtles will return to the beach at Anse Forbans to lay their eggs, and the one more turtle nest has already been found close by and is due to hatch any day now.
