Lovely beach, quiet with only a handful of people on the beach with you in mid August. The drive there was interesting but made it without a 4x4. Wide horses ran along beside us on the drive up to the beach. There is no snack bar, so take plenty of water with you, and shoes as the sand is to... More

You cannot get to Lara bay without a jeep. We were on a tour with ecotours and enjoyed this gorgeous fairly quiet stretch of sea. A lovely swim! It's a protected area and turtle eggs are covered so creatures like foxes don't eat them. Turtle babies hatch and come out at sunset and we learned that any light at all... More

Beautiful beach with a turtle tank. Unfortunately we didn't see any turtles in the sea. The water and the beach are very clean. The beach is hard to find but definitely worth a visit. It is fairly quiet, there are no water activities or sun loungers making it more idyllic.

Went on the way to another destination. Roads to get there are very rough/basic so go slow or book as part of a trip. Go up to the righthand side of the beach so you can see the info kiosks and baby turtles in the lidded tank. Nice clean beach with protected turtle nests but no shade at all so... More

Fascinating to see the help and preservation of the turtles. I saw some go into the sea on a full moon - I hope they survive as they were so small and vulnerable.

Just a sharp shingle beach in the day with metal cages over the nests. Really rough driving to get there, about 4km of off road driving but I'm told about 8pm or early morning you see all the turtles. Choose your times to visit

We visited Lara Bay in Aug 2015 as part of a day trip. beautiful beach not developed at all very exposed in the hot Cyprus sun. Plenty of sun cream and water is a must. As the are around 50 steps down to the beach which seemed longer on the way up!!! Interesting conservation project most of the beach was... More

Super for a swim in the warm waves and to see the turtle nests, and the new born turtles being released into the sea. Take some shade as it gets hot but a super beach and a joy to be there.
