Lara Bay Turtle Conservation Station, Paphos

3.9
#4 of 10 in Parks in Paphos
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
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.

  • The place is very beautiful, turtle laying marked, but the turtles themselves there. When we were there, huge waves were very picturesque

  • We visited whilst on a jeep safari, not a lot to see really and you are not allowed to walk on beach because of the eggs in the sand  more »
  • We came with too high expectations to Lara Turtle Beach. The year before we had seen many turtles on Zakynthos, a number of beaches full of nest protectors and a beautiful information centre. Nothing here that all. A single nest protector and a few information boards. We were soon gone again!

Where to stay in Paphos

A vacation favorite, Paphos is equipped with a wide range of accommodations to cater to its scores of visitors. Beachside hotels are plentiful, with many located in the bustling Kato Pafos neighborhood.
