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.

  • Well know how to Cypriots who protects sea turtles are exhibited in the coffee shop before the turtles are giving birth how to do detailed pictures with Museum goes to the beach and there are so. You'd better not, such as the bathers on the north side of the island. However, we hope that the water is connected to the South, because pollution from civilization does not threaten sea turtle who lives.

  • It's an amazing unique place. We were there twice. And we are extremely fortunate to see the miracle of birth the little cherepashat and their departure to a great swimming in the sea. Two specially trained person dug a laying eggs, which hatched the night before to check if cherepashat who could not hatch out yourself. These turned out to be two. Their previously released from shells and carried ashore to the water. Cherepashata were weak, they crept very slowly and would hardly have been able to overcome distance from the brickwork to the water about 50 metres. They and a couple of feet away barely crept. One specially trained people even did massage ctal))) then they picked sea wave and long trepala in Priboj thither. I hope they have survived. What we saw was excellent, we were shivering on long stone road on rental car. From other reviews I found that not everyone is so lucky, and many simply see the beautiful beach and laying eggs. By the way, on the left side of the beach, if you stand with your back to the sea, there is a small canopy under which there are two aquarium with small cherepashatami. This two kinds of turtles, sandpipers on this beach. To go or not, you decide. The road is long and hard, and not the fact that you're lucky something to see. But if you see what we saw, you will have amazing experiences, photos and videos to life.

  • Passed this beach, riding in a rented car on the island. Especially go there. The usual sand beach but with enclosed within the snail's pockets. The maximum that you can see traces of the turtle on the sand.
