Guided Tours

There are several interesting things to see and do in Uzi that you can choose depending on your interests and time. Also please note that the tide situation might have a word to say - during high tide it is better to start your tour at the sea turtle lagoon because this is where you will arrive by boat, during low tide if you arrive by vehicle it might be better to start in the village. Let us know your date and expected hours of visit and we will suggest you the perfect half day or full day in Uzi. Also please note that Uzi village is a real village where people live and not a museum. Therefore it might be necessary to make amendments to the program at the village.

Further themed areas include sustainable and unsustainable fishing methods, fascinating tideland creatures, coastal ecosystems such as mangroves, seaweed cultivation, the importance of conservation, and there is a bird observation point.
