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

Though we missed the baby turtles by a month, we did see several small turtles in an aquarium. Very impressive what they are doing to increase the green turtle population. Also another nice beach front.

Fantastic tour of the Akamas yesterday with Andreas (Eco Adventure Tours) - saw so many things in one day. The highlight was the baby turtles at Lara Beach. Brilliant day out for both adults and children - very informative, great fun and met some lovely people. The beach was beautiful and the water was just the right place to relax... More

Post card views! Lots of tortoise nests, where you can see sand print and trails where they were heading to. Fine gold sand, clear azure sea! Closed at night! Worth to be there. There are two sheds with information's and pictures about volunteer work ans supporting tortoise and wild life.

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
