8 of us went to Lara (Cue 'mow a meadow' theme tune). We went in a minibus. This is where our story starts and ends. Lara is a lovely beach with clear waters, very, very hot sand, but no amenities at all. No food, no drink, no toilets. Nothing. A beach for the locals that know what this adventure has... More

We accessed this beach as part of the 4x4 experience. It was a very hot day at 38C and there are 66 steep steps down to the beach and turtle station so not for the immobile or elderly. It was interesting but nothing much to see and the turtle station is just a glorified wooden shed with pictures. Noting the... More

After driving for about half an hour on a really very bumpy road we turned off to find the beach. Lovely and sandy and only a few people scattered around. While in the sea a turtle swam passed, it made our day. Lovely place to spend a couple of hours.

Lara beach, known for it's turtle community is really an outstanding place. Much is written about the need for 4 on 4 or difficult road - no such problem realy exists. wheather the famous beach itself or the long stretches of tottaly empty and romantic getaways between the rocks, one can enjoy the sea, the wind, the serenity, so close...

Reading reviews it is a bit difficult to see what people don't like about this beach but it is what it says it is, if you want to get away from it all with friends or family for a few hours then take your lunch and drinks and towels and get off the well beaten tracks and just spend a... More

even though we were a little worried about driving out to lara beach on the dirt track in our rental car - we did it (and want you to know you can too)! we went slowly and made it fine to this beautiful, secluded beach. the water is warm and crystal clear. there were many turtle nests marked off on...
