Besides this being an interesting place from a wildlife perspective, its also a great secluded beach with few visitors. You can get there with an ordinary car but its a slow and careful drive. Much more fun in a 4x4 or buggy!

I visited this as part of an eco tour and it was intriguing to learn about turtles, their habits, and how they survive. It was great to see the place where turtles lay their eggs. It was a secluded beach in a beautiful location.

We visited this as part of a 4 x 4 excursion but you have op traverse some 64 steps to access the site and then stand in a glorified shed with just a few faded photographs.

This place has the best beach we visited while we were there, it's so beautiful, plus the beach is pretty big and quiet. This definitely made our holiday better. It's pretty much in the middle of nowhere with dirt/rough tracks on the way so you'll need a reasonably robust car and I'd recommend you bring food and drinks for a... More

We drove up to Lara Beach from Paphos. about 40 mins in slow traffic. The sealed road becomes a track near Lara, and then a bumpy track (good car or 4x4 required). We found the turtle nsting area but not much was going on...all about timimg I would suggest. We will come back here when we have more time. Stunning... More

Very lovely beach. Great how they protect the turtle eggs. Only thing is the long walk down the cliffs to the beach.
