Larestan County (Persian: شهرستان لارستان) is a county in Fars Province in Iran. The capital of the county is Lar. The county has eight cities: Lar, Evaz, Beyram, Banaruiyeh, Fishvar, Juyom, Khur, and Latifi. The county is subdivided into six districts: the Central District, Beyram, Evaz District, Banaruiyeh, Sahray Bagh, and Juyom.
Larestani people speak the Larestani language. Larestani people are of Persian descent, the majority of Larestani people are Sunnis and follow the Shafi'i rite. This is all that is left from when Iran/Persia itself was primarily a Shafi'i Sunni country until the beginning of the 16th century. Larestani people call themselves "Khodmooni".
Under medieval age, Laristan was ruled by the local dynasty of Miladi, until it was removed by a Safavid invasion in 1610. In the thirteenth century, Larestan briefly became a center of trade and commerce in southern Persia. Larestan was nearly always an obscure region, never becoming involved in the politics and conflicts of mainstream Persia.
At the 2006 census, Larestan county's population was 223,235 people.
