Lara Bay Turtle Conservation Station, Paphos

(3.9/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
On a secluded beach away from hotels, shops, and any public facilities, the tiny wooden Lara Bay Turtle Conservation Station helps baby turtles hatch and head for the sea. Sometimes during hatching season, there will be water tanks with tiny sea turtles inside that have just come out of their eggs at the station. At other times, you'll encounter iron cages and signs scattered along the beach warning of turtle nests buried in the sand underneath. Cages protect them from predators such as birds and foxes. If you miss seeing the turtles hatch in person, check out the photos with descriptions of past years' activities. See Lara Bay Turtle Conservation Station and all Paphos has to offer by arranging your trip with our Paphos vacation route planner.

  • always missed the baby turtle but love the quietness (you cant get there by car) so we run/walk from the start of the akamas peninsula (3 miles) 
  • Went in February on a conventional car, if not in a hurry, you can go. Unusual dreamlike landscape, passing by local hunters on pickups, partridges, dashing road and beautiful flowers, stones can be removed through film-fairy tale. The beach itself is a beautiful, turtle laying we have not met and people were a little. The bottom is sandy, lucky with the weather. Near the cliffs of chalk, stones very beautiful, intimate atmosphere and quiet. Wonderful day, kids have a place to run. Do not forget to collect some garbage that makes ashore in order to support this unique place
