Honesty is the best policy. I’ve been to Lara Beach for over 30 years. I remember this was just a small beach and a tree-filled area. At that time, she had unique beauty and the sea was sparkling. Although, even today, it has a very beautiful beach and a great temperature of water. If you ask my opinion, The best time to go Lara Beach is between 15th of April to 15th of June. During these times, water is very warm and clear. At the same time, change cabins and toilets are very clean. My wife and I are usually at Lara Beach from Monday through Friday, 8am to 14pm, and we usually swim for a few hours and then sit in the picnic area for a while. We usually take parasol, towels, sun glasses, hats, tea,simit and fruits with us. In fact, there are not many people at Lara Beach at this time, and people who see each other every day start to make friends after a point. We also had a great number of beautiful friends, domestic and foreign, who came to Lara Beach these days. After June 15, when schools are on holiday, the changing cabins start to smell urine, unfortunately the toilets are very dirty. People need to be a little more sensitive.
