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

.... great trek from Coral Bay to Lara Beach taking in the delights at Lara Bay restaurant complete with sun drenched patio, perfect milkshakes, stray cats, mangy dogs and buff Greek gods!... Well worth the stop comments Laura Hall!

We visited Lara Bay near the end of September. Any reasonable car will get you there if you take your time, just be careful as its several miles of dirt track littered with potholes. Its a tiresome journey and the end result a major let down. Its a beach, nothing more. Check out pictures of it online and decide for... More

We had hired a 4x4 specifically to get to this beach and we were glad we did but having said that, we did see cars parked and cars driving up there so it is do-able in a 'regular' car, if not particularly comfortable! The biggest shock we had was that it was packed and we were expecting deserted. We went... More

We made it here in a very small car with no trouble at all but the road is very bumpy and it takes a long time as you have to go slowly. When you see the first quite large sign saying 'Lara area' turn light just before it and it takes you straight to the parking area. Stunning views and... More

A very nice and quiet beach in the morning. The view cannot possibly be better. The water is very clear and just the right temperature. Shallow sand beach makes it suitable for all. Despite the popular belief that one needs a 4x4, most rental car will make it with some careful driving. Be prepared to bring your own parasol, mat... More
