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

Recommend a 4x4 very bumpy ride but well worth the ride beach is secluded and empty. Great little cafe half way there , didn't see any turtles as they only come out at night.

At Lara beach you can see where turtles lay their eggs deep in the sand before swimming out to sea, the baby turtles swim out to join their family once hatched. There are scientists and volunteers who monitor and protect the area of the beach. There is a restaurant perched above the perch and see the beauty of the beach... More

I love it here, it is remote and thus empty! The beach is half sand/stone but still very nice. If you like waves you can enjoy some big ones there, total fun! Go to the Akamas Gorge and on the way back stop for a swim!

Well, we were lucky because we were there in mid-November, so no tourists . The weather was great, the water was transparent. During the 5 hours we spent on the beach we were less than 6 people. So we had the space we wanted to just rest on the soft sand and to swim in the sea. The landscape is... More

A beautiful, secluded beach on the Akamas peninsula made even more special when the sun sets and the moon takes over the illumination of the beach. If you are lucky you may see a turtle heave itself from the lapping waves and struggle up the beach to dig a pit with her flippers and deposit her eggs before covering them... More
