The turtle has been a symbol of longevity, stability, and peace - from ancient times until today.
Their unhurried movements and aged appearance gives them an aura of wisdom, and makes them a favorite among divers. They can be found throughout the waters surrounding Binongko, but one spot in particular, called Turtle Point, is especially famous for its massive population.

Highly Recommended Trip
Witness this when taking a breath-taking snorkel trip. To enjoy the reef, located in front of Wali, it is best to take a small wooden boat. If you snorkel from the southern tip of the reef the current will drag you along the reef. After snorkeling for around 20 minutes the small boats can pick you up and take you back to your starting point. They are a bit unstable, but after some time you get used to it. If you are not a good swimmer be sure to wear a life jacket while snorkeling and in the boat. In addition to the beautiful hard coral and enormous amount of fish, it is not unusual to see up to ten turtles. If you want to catch a glimpse of these wonderful creatures, this trip is highly recommended.
Turtle Point is located on the southeast reef of Binongko around 3km from Wali. Small boats can be taken directly from Wali village. The small wooden motorized boats take around 30 minutes to reach the reef.
