We visited this beach with some friends to see how the turtles hatch and find their way into the sea. Unfortunately we saw something terrible. This place is supposed to be under protection so as the turtle eggs could hatch with safety. So instead of...More

The views are amazing, however it is a very long steep walk up and down to the beach! I'm not tall but it felt like I was lunging up and squatting to get down to the next step. Didn't see any turtles unfortunately but it...More

We stopped by Lara bay as part of a quad/buggy tour. And we where lucky enough to witness a green turtle nest hatching! A beautiful scene! The beach itself is lovely and quiet. If you where planning on spending the day you would need to...More

On the 31/7 the Turtles are hatching and saw some be saved who didn’t leave the nest and were saved from essentially being cooked. They have Turtles in a tank so tourists get to see them. It is odd but the logic is you don’t...More

We visited Lara Bay as part of our private tour in a 4x4. The road isn't great and although it can be done in a normal car, the 4x4 seemed a lot easier. There are a number of steps that take you down to the...More

Some reviewers have said how difficult the last road is to drive and that a 4x4 is needed. I would only assume that they have not had to navigate the potholed roads of Kent. Taken steadily we easily drove the road in an 8 seater...More

Worth to visit. Lovely beach. We've driven there with a hired suzuki swift. You dont need a jeep, just a bit carefully driving. (Ca. 5km dirty track) There will be some misleading signs to Lara restaurant or Lara Cafe but do not go that direction,...More

Super beach, well worth the rather long dusty last 5 miles down a rough track, we did it in a standard hire car, just take it slowly !

Bit of a drive down the off-road track. Locals will say you need a 4x4 but you don’t, just take it slow in places. Stay on the road and don’t take the turning to resturant, the main beach is around the headland. Beautiful sandy beach...More
