We have found the perfect peace here. Far away from everthing, we got the place by buggies. Few people, the pure nature, the see, sun, sand, turtles. Higly recommened.

It was very interesting to see where and how nature blends with everything. The beach and sea was so beautiful and warm - my husband said it was one of the best he had swam in.

Lara Bay is gorgeous. It's pretty barren - the turtle nests have protective covers over them and aside from that, there's just a scruffy little shack with some (very good and interesting) information about the turtle preservation programme. But it has the softest sand I've...More
