While it might be off the beaten path, you should have no problem finding this beach with its own private entrance and dirt road that leads to gorgeous views of blue waters from every angle!
The natural beauty here makes it an ideal spot to enjoy some time in nature or go for a hike along the coastal path that leads into Avakas Gorge. There you can see some beautiful rock formations. There are no services offered at this beach, so visitors will get their full dose of nature without any interference from humans!
The only transportation option to reach your destination is via private car, preferably a 4×4. You can take tours from Paphos, but please consider making the trek on your own. We took our rented car and managed just fine, thanks to plenty of caution when driving along those bumpy roads.
Lara Bay Turtles
One of the most exciting things about Lara Beach is that Lara Bay is a protected breeding ground for endangered turtles such as Green Turtles and Hawk’s Bill turtles. The best time for visiting comes at any point throughout August or September when the baby turtles hatch and make their way to the sea. Of course, you have to keep your distance, so make sure you bring those binoculars!
Swimming is allowed at Lara Beach but not in the central area due to the turtles.
Please make sure to include a trip to Lara Beach. It’s easy to have it as part of any visit to Avakas Gorge or the Blue Lagoon beach.
