A bumpy trip but nothing a slow drive can't cope with, at the far end of the beach there is a shack with the turtles swimming in a tank, the silver markers indicate where eggs are buried. We were lucky to see eggs being recovered from the roped off section, a baby turtle was allowed to be Seen close up,... More

Having seen the beach in from the nearby Agios Georgious on a previous trip we were advised against going there in a small hire car; this time we had a jeep so we went for a look. Luckily we were ahead of a Ka with red plates which promptly broke down on a narrow slope clagging up a line of... More

Well worth the drive along the bumpy and dusty track to reach this quiet stretch of sea, sand and some stones. The loudest noise comes from the waves crashing in. Turtles come here to lay their eggs so be careful not to disturb the nests, covered by metal guards across the beach. If you look carefully, you'll see the tracks... More

Really nice and really quiet beach, with a nice restaurant. We enjoyed an afternoon there, almost alone on the beach. Warning: you access this beach with a dirt road. Be careful with rental cars as some companies might have special conditions and could try to keep your deposit if you drive on this kind of roads.

Beautiful beach full of turtle nests. The seas was warm and clear with very few people on it. Only advice, don't try and get there from Polis via Neo Chorio as the mountain roads are dicey especially in a 2wd hire car and it takes ages to get there. Best bet is to take the longer main road route but... More

You'll need a 4x4 or a rental car you're not paying any excess on as Lara beach is a bit of a slog to get to Well worth it when you're there though Stunning, quiet sandy beach, warm crystal clear water Protected turtle eggs Be warned not much in the way of facilities We loved it

I was lucky to visit this beach on a tour from Paphos, it surpassed any of the other beaches in Cyprus by a mile. You need a 4x4 to get to it and expect a very bumpy ride. Also, the turtles obviously only hatch at certain times of the year so don't expect to see one!

The absolute nicest beach in Cyprus! Golden, fine sand and crystal clear water. We visited the beach in July and it was very peaceful, only 10 people on the beach, a great place to relax. What we didn't know was that to get to the beach you need to drive 20min off the road which was quite an adventurous ride... More

We came here for a swim while on a jeep safari-a normal car would not manage the road down. The bay is beautifully quiet and unspoilt. The water is so crystal clear you can see your shadow in the sand. Hardly any seaweed or rocks either. Perfect for swimming and snorkeling. What made it extra special is knowing that it... More

Lara is a beautiful beach in a conservation (turtles) area. There is a tavern on the cliff, with showers. It's a very large bay & the waves can be quite high / strong. Tip - walk all the way along the beach from the taverna, until you get just before the bend & settle there. Sea bed is sandy (although... More
