I obviously had the wrong idea when we went to Lara Beach as I thought it would be really sandy rather like the sand at Coral Bay but unfortunately it was coarse sand interspersed with pebbles and the shoreline and into the sea was all pebbles. It was pretty but I have seen prettier in my travels. The road to... More

Not much to add really. This is a truly beautiful beach and at it's peak busy period last Saturday there were 4 other couples/families. On Tuesday we were completely alone almost all afternoon. The road to get there from Pegeia direction is awful but we did it in a small rental hatchback.... not sure I'd try it in the rain... More

We took the road less travelled. After visiting Androlikou, an abandoned village, we were making our way to Ineia and on the way spotted a turning sharp right switch back heading down with a sign most would miss pointing to Lara. Very rough and winding road all the way down the mountain to Lara Beach, but one of most spectacular... More

The beach was really beautiful with magnificent views all round. The restaurant on the beach served up the most amazing Sea Bass with home made chips. The Restaurant owner was the most helpful and happy person I think I met in Cyprus. She called us "my darling" and she accommodated our every wish. Stayed at the Restaurant for Sun Set... More

The Lara Beach is located north of Agios Georgios Pegeias, in the Akamas Peninsula. Being famous for the turtles that hatch here (only at the end of July and October), this is also a place for relaxation in one of the remoted areas of Cyprus. There are no cafes and restaurant, so is a great idea to have food and... More

We visited Cyprus as a couple in October 2013; it was our first visit there. Accommodated in Limassol, we daily driven with car to view various attractions – beaches, mountains, historical places. Lara beach was really in a long distance from our hotel, but unlikely to some reviewers, I don’t regret this time. We also didn’t see any turtle, but... More

I would imagine that in the warm season it is beautiful there, but we went in November. It's a long unmade road, but we were ok in a 4x4. We came over the hills from Latchi which is fantastic in a suitable vehicle but definitely avoid in the rain. a number of narrow sandy tracks lead to parking areas -... More

There are various reports relating to the access to this beach for vehicles - in reality by taking care on the unmade road then most vehicles will not encounter problems The quad bikes that race along certainly churn the surface and this doesn't help - but take your time, take care and you will find it is worth it

Lovely safe shallow sandy beach about. 40 mins north of paphos. Drive is part on unmetalled roads and is rough. Stick at it though as the beach has clear gently shoaling water and sift brown sand. No other facilities though out of season. Lovely and peaceful.

It was a nervous 25 minute drive in our basic hire car along the dusty bumpy rocky track to get to the beach but well worth it. The sandy beach is stunning. Only 5 other cars there so we had a huge section of the beach to ourselves. This is an undeveloped area for a reason! Take a picnic -... More
