location iconLara Beach, Paphos, Cyprus

When you stand on the shores of Lara Beach taking in the views under the generous summer sun of Cyprus, you will feel revitalized and recharged almost immediately. Because Lara Beach has a unique effect on her visitors. Granted, she is playing hard to get – it takes a four-wheel drive to reach her – but the effort is all worth it and here are the reasons why.

Lara Beach Is a Haven for Green Turtles

Lara Beach at Lara Bay is often described as a tiny paradise. Its waters are crystal clear, the sand is soft, the vistas are beyond compare, and the bay is delightful. Note that you will spot many green turtles here, as well as wild goats. This is a protected area. Don’t visit it for long stretches of time without supplies like food, water, and sunscreen.

When you are here, you should visit the Lara Bay Turtle Conservation Station, which is a research facility dedicated to the protection of the Green and Loggerhead Turtles. In this safe haven, you can see the conservationists at work. To look at the turtles coming to Lara Beach to lay their eggs, you should visit Cyprus between May and August. The fragile eggs are protected against predators with metal cages. There are many warning signs letting tourists know where to step. Although admission is free, access to the facility is only allowed with guided tours. Overnight camping is not permitted. If you don’t make it when the turtles come to shore, there is an information board explaining the work done by volunteers to protect these endangered creatures. You will see photos too. In the egg-laying season, water tanks with turtle hatchlings are placed in the conservation shack for the benefit of the tourists.

Lara Beach is located on the Akamas Peninsula and can be only accessed by four-wheel drive, minibus tour, or by boat from Paphos. Besides enjoying the flora and the fauna of the area, there’s not much to do here. The beach is deserted, and there is no shade so it will be useful to bring along an umbrella.

More Beaches

Coral Bay
Coral Bay Beach is a family-friendly beach, well-organized, with comfy sunbeds and umbrellas, as well as lifeguards on duty during the swimming season.
 
Latsi Beach
There are several spellings for the small fishing village of Latsi: Latchi, Lachi, and even Lakki. But no matter how you decide to spell it, it will not take away from the charm of the place. Latsi is largely unspoiled. Located next to the Akamas National Park on the Akamas Peninsula, the village itself is an idyllic treasure. And sunkissed Latsi Beach is the perfect spot for sunbathing.
 
Paphos Municipal Baths
The Municipal Bath Beach, which is also known as the Kato Paphos Beach, stretches from Yeroskipou towards the Paphos harbor along the Poseidonos Avenue. It is a favorite destination for experienced swimmers, as its waters are deep and clean.
 
Geroskipou Municipal Beach
The Geroskipou Municipal Beach is an institution of sorts in this part of Paphos. It all started when Ricco’s Bar opened back in 1975 on a rocky shore. But the locals – including authorities – saw potential in this place and transformed the bare coast of the sea into a Blue Flag sensation. Literally.
 
Petra Tou Romiou
One of the easiest ways to understand why Cyprus is so special is to walk on the beach at Petra tou Romiou – the mythological birthplace of the goddess of love, Aphrodite. This is one of the prettiest stops on the Aphrodite Cultural Route.
