South of Rosh HaNikra. In the breeding season, from May to September, female Sea Turtles lay their eggs on the sandy beach few meters from the sea, just beyond the tide line. That’s because the salt water could damage the delicate eggshell. They dig a hole, lay their eggs inside the hole and carefully cover it with the sand. Immediately afterwards, they return to the sea never to see their babies again :(
The eggs are incubated in the hot sun for two months. The hatchlings break their way out of the eggs during several nights and then return right into the sea. The bright light reflected from the foam of the waves marks their way to the sea and they get there quickly.

Sea Turtles navigate their way through the sea with the help of the earth's magnetic field, and the females return to the same beach where they hatched to lay eggs as adults.
