Take a sea turtle home

No, not a real sea turtle.  But a local, hand-carved turtle to remember Rosalie Bay Resort and the sea turtles who nest and hatch here each year.

Wood carver Frankie Phillip, who is 24 years old and from the nearby village of Grand Fond, created these beautiful souvenirs exclusively for Rosalie Bay Resort. Each sea turtle features a shell made from dry coconut shell and head, legs and tail carved from local wood.

Frankie is a talented artist that has worked at Rosalie Bay Resort for one year. He also carved our staff name tags and many of the signs you see around the resort.


You can now find Frankie’s wooden turtles available for purchase in the Gift Shop. The cost is $20 and the proceeds from the sales benefit the sea turtle conservation program.
