Lara Bay Turtle Conservation Station, Paphos

Inspirock Rating:
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.

Arriving at a small shelter with informative posters, a very small aquarium with two juveniles. It was then already. Stairs down to the beach with the guards on the located, and nothing else. The beach is great, no doubt. But we expected more about turtles. Apparently, simply lack the funds to make this sustainable work in the form of a hatchery to increase the survival rate of young animals. After all, you can then on the beautiful beach make yourself comfortable and if you took something to drink and eat, there is no reason for the starve or die of thirst. Because nothing to buy gibts here far and wide.
