Lara Bay lies on the north-west coast of the Akamas peninsula. You can get there by driving to Pegeia and then to Agios Georgios. It is a protected area and a heavenly paradise, completely unspoilt and natural. The bay is in the shape of a horseshoe, the sand is soft and golden and the water is warm and clear. At Lara Beach you have the opportunity to experience a natural Cyprus coast that has remained intact through time and has been unaffected by the recent land developments in Paphos. Here you will definitely appreciate the greatness and beauty of nature to the fullest.
Lara Bay is one of the few remaining places for loggerhead and green turtles to nest. If you visit in July you might get lucky and spot them laying their eggs otherwise you can see the placed cages protecting the turtle’s nests and the big holes the turtles dug to bury their eggs. There is a Conservation Station in a small wooden hut with lots of information about the two different turtle species, the conservation process and a small tank with baby turtles for you to see. Lara Bay and the Conservatory is a unique attraction worth visiting.
