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

Well worth the effort - we walked from the Avagas river - but be aware hired cars may not be covered by insurance on these unpaved roads. So get out and enjoy the walk. Go rockpooling, look at the caves ... a great day out.

A very beautiful place that can be reached with a non 4x4 car even if the road is a little bit chaotic and hard to find. In September, we saw only a few tourists around and has a wonderful beach for ourselves. Unfortunately no turtle at this time of the year. Prefer the beach at the end of the peninsula... More

Wrong time of year (June) for actual hatching of turtles but a fascinating experience nonetheless. The little museum explaining everything was fascinating and looking at the marked off egg hatching areas was appreciated,

This is suppose to be a Turtle reserve, and the place as littered with plastic bottles, and human rubbish that must have been taken there. IF YOU TAKE IT, THEN TAKE IT HOME. A hard uneven road to go on, but well worth the few

Lara bay and Turtle beach are reached when the Tarmac runs out along a stretch of very touch track. With a four wheel drive this poses little problem. The reward is calm and tranquility at these beautiful bays. Just one family and three couples on a vast classically curved beach at turtle bay, in November. No titles now, but lots... More

Visited Lara Bay as part of our 4x4 excursion. Beautiful beach, gorgeous views and we were told a lot of interesting information about the turtles. We even got to see some of the baby turtles too which was just gorgeous. Shame we didn't get to stay longer as part of our excursion, would love to go again.
