Lara Beach, Turkey

TURKEY is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world.

The country’s coastline is lined with incredible beaches – and Lara is one of the best of the bunch.

Is Lara beach worth visiting?

Lara beach, situated on Turkey’s south coast, is the perfect place for a family day out.

The beach is lined with huge hotels – which show exactly why this area in Antalya is known as ‘Turkey’s Las Vegas’.

Each hotel has an allocated section of the beach where their guests can grab a sunbed and soak up the sunshine.

Some hotels even have a mini-pier where you can grab a cold drink and enjoy the music.

Lara is a great place to explore Turkey’s famous turquoise coast – which is surprisingly warm all year round.

If sunbathing all day is not your thing, Lara beach has you covered as there are plenty of activities on offer.

You can rent a jet-ski – but make sure you shop around to ensure you get the best price possible.

There’s also a long-list of watersports available for you to try – including the popular banana boat.

One thing to watch out for at the beach are the stray dogs – even if they are very cute.

These roam freely around the beach and will not think twice before swiping your sandwich from your hand.

Most will just be looking for a spot of shade, but it’s worth approaching them with caution if you do.
