This was a bit of a mission to find and we had to rent a quad hike to get to it but we found it first time considering the whole place is pretty much a maze. It was the right time of the year too but we didnt see any turtles. But we snorkelled and it was essentially the clearest... More

Lara Bay is a really nice beach. There's also an area where the conservation workers raise some hatchling turtles, which was interesting, but the turtles wouldn't be there until breeding season.

Once we entered, it's obvious that the turtles MAY ONLY visit the... More

The track to get to Lara Bay is a long and windy and a bit hair raising in places to say the least, but our party managed it in our rental Nissan Notes so it is doable. On the way back, we also noticed once of the locals, driving back in a Beetle as if it was a surfaced road... More
