Lara Beach – The Famous Turtle Bay

Lara Bay, if you’re looking for turtles in Cyprus and you type that in to a search engine, Lara Bay will be the first thing that comes up. The beach itself is very impressive, like a cove. The sand is an unusual earthy red colour and there are amazingly foamy waves. Word of warning, do not eat at the little restaurant on the hill just above here as although the people who served us seemed lovely, the food was the exact opposite of lovely. Some of you will recognize the image to the right as the cover of Happenings Magazine. The journey to the beach is just as stunning as the beach itself, I even saw a wild boar on my way up here! Although I didn’t go for a swim, I could see other people swimming. No where near as many turtle nests as I expected, you be better off going to the Akrotiri Sand Dune Beach, for a good chance of seeing a turtle. But still I enjoyed the visit it’s a very rough and rugged beauty you don’t see very much of elsewhere.
