Lara Beach is home to a turtle conservation project that has been on going for many years. Well worth a visit when the young turtles are hatching and being returned to the sea but not much to see except a very long sandy beach at other times. The 'road' to get there is a rough track and not for the nervous driver

The beach was good (sandy) and the swimming nice.
Had to climb down to the beach. The road to Lara Bay is very bad (not good for car springs) - not available when the turtles are hatching in the summer.

We hired out a Jeep for the day to explore this "off-the-beaten-track" area of Cyprus and it was definitely a highlight of our trip. We were lucky to have wonderful warm weather too. Lara Bay is isolated but beautiful in its natural beauty. There is a tiny taverna close by too where we had coffee, sat back, listened to the crashing waves on the beach...

Lara Bay is a beautiful beach in at certain times of the year you can enjoy watching the little leatherback and green turtles scurry off the beach to freedom - excellent viewing.
