“Just beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2014

A very beautiful place that can be reached with a non 4x4 car even if the road is a little bit chaotic and hard to find.

In September, we saw only a few tourists around and has a wonderful beach for ourselves. Unfortunately no turtle at this time of the year.

Prefer the beach at the end of the peninsula were we found absolutely nobody. If you are willing to watch the sunset there, put some mosquito repellent!

“Poor little rental car probably almost lost it s suspension getting to this destination, however, it was worth it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2014

Wrong time of year (June) for actual hatching of turtles but a fascinating experience nonetheless. The little museum explaining everything was fascinating and looking at the marked off egg hatching areas was appreciated,

“Dirty beach,”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2014

This is suppose to be a Turtle reserve, and the place as littered with plastic bottles, and human rubbish that must have been taken there. IF YOU TAKE IT, THEN TAKE IT HOME. A hard uneven road to go on, but well worth the few

“Beauty and peace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2014

Lara bay and Turtle beach are reached when the Tarmac runs out along a stretch of very touch track. With a four wheel drive this poses little problem. The reward is calm and tranquility at these beautiful bays. Just one family and three couples on a vast classically curved beach at turtle bay, in November. No titles now, but lots of information about the conservation project.

“Beautiful Bay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2014

Visited Lara Bay as part of our 4x4 excursion. Beautiful beach, gorgeous views and we were told a lot of interesting information about the turtles. We even got to see some of the baby turtles too which was just gorgeous. Shame we didn't get to stay longer as part of our excursion, would love to go again.
