OK so you need a 4 wheel drive to get there but it is worth it - if you get there for turtle hatching it is amazing. If you heading just to find a nice beach away from the tourist trade on other beaches it is a fabulous spot. Take everything you need though especially shade and water! Ocean is... More

If you can bear the very bumpy journey down the dirt tracks, this is an interesting place to look. However, there are no facilities in the sense of a visitor centre (there are a couple of cafes etc). It could, as a minimum, have some information boards put up in strategic places. We saw no wildlife and as all of... More

Good day, although a challenge to get here! Rocky roads is an understatement. Once here, great views, one of the few sandy beaches and beautiful clear waters. Not many people on the beach either. Worth a visit. Very hot and no shade though so be prepared!

Was lovely to see lara beach and the conservation which has been set up to protect. Quite difficult to get too and all you see is metal rings showing where the sites are marked. You wont see any turtles.

We got here by quad bike which is probably the best way. Jeep safaris also come to Lara Bay. We also took a boat, but boats are not allowed too close between April to October. We didn't see any turtles, but we did go for a swim. The water is crystal clear and lovely and cool. It is a beautiful... More

Beautiful place to visit..... I only wish I was there when the turtles were hatching. There are pretty safe steps down to the beach and a small information area which is really interesting although it could have been a little bigger with more information. Beautiful sandy beach.
