What people say

"Don't go here! People will try to sell it to you everywhere, but in my opinion it's not worth it. The old prison building is interesting, but there is no information about it anywhere. The turtles also live in very small spaces, and the cage for the babies in particular is cruel. The swimming option they offer with the tour is next to all the boats and not particularly nice. "
"Tortoise, tortoise, tortoise. Despite its name, Prison Island has never served as a jail due to a variety of historical factors. This place is now overrun by tortoises, the oldest of which is 198 years old. You can feed them, scratch their heads, and take pictures with them. This was without a doubt one of my favourite things to do in town."
