The Green Turtle (Chelonia Midas) is the most common turtle on Rekawa beach. They come to Rekawa all year, but high season runs from April to July. A green turtle measures 80-120 centimeter and weighs around 150-200 kilograms. The shell is light or dark brown, but the name comes from their green colored flesh. The Green Turtle is still popular for Turtle Soup and is endangered.
