Explanation boards on the conservation of the turtles. On the beach we was lucky enough to see where a turtle had come up that night and laid eggs. The other nests are protected to help the baby turtles hatch.

There were no turtles in June when we went. The beach is very nice though. And the sand quite clean.

Worth the visit. We came across Lara Bay during a quad safari tour - there are very rough roads leading up to Lara Bay.

No, there are signs of protected areas where eggs are buried but turtles are months later, never seen one myself- they hatch when there is a full moon, I think it may be July?
