“Something different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2015 NEW

Recommend going with a guide so much to see along the way , quad biking made it thoroughly enjoyable wouldn't recommend driving saw some stranded cars in soft sand , great beach , when you get there's lots of turtle nests on the beach and a small open shed type building with a couple of tanks with baby turtles its vey basic the key is don't expect too much also the guides will advertise that you can hold the baby turtles this is not the case you are not allowed to touch them . the beach was not crowded at all very few people no amenities though but you could easily spend the day there BE WARNED the sand gets boiling hot so make sure you take some sandals or similar down to the water and something to lay , on go prepared water etc as there is nowhere to buy food or drink . It's not suitable for the disabled the path down to the beach is quite steep and uneven

“Wow just wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2015

This was a bit of a mission to find and we had to rent a quad hike to get to it but we found it first time considering the whole place is pretty much a maze. It was the right time of the year too but we didnt see any turtles. But we snorkelled and it was essentially the clearest waters that we had seen around the island . Visibility well over 15 meters under water and so many things to see .

“Nice beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2015

Lara Bay is a really nice beach. There's also an area where the conservation workers raise some hatchling turtles, which was interesting, but the turtles wouldn't be there until breeding season.
