Cyprus Beach Guide

Cyprus beaches are perfect for any-time of the year and even if you are looking a good idea for a destination to go to on your all inclusive holidays at Christmas then you should not be surprised to learn that Cyprus beaches are open all year round.

Liminaki Beach, Ayia Napa The best beach for the resort, Liminaki Beach positioned on the bay east of the harbour, in two parts, Pethamenia and Kryo Nero, and stopping at the Thalassines Spilies (Sea Caves).

Makronisos Beach The last in the string of beaches sitting west of Ayia Napa, Makronisos Beach has the same facilities as the

Nissi Beach in Cyprus.

others, never the less it has the additional appeal of an unearthed maze of old Greek and Roman tombs, that are constantly accessible. These are the best of a group of good, but normally very busy beaches that are a few miles out of Ayia Napa. The beaches are easily got to by taxi or bus from the main resort, Nissi Beach has good water sports and other facilities.

Limassol Beaches are for the most pebble although there are a few sandy beaches with a blue flag structure in place. Our All Inclusive tip: Cyprus permits all its holidaymakers to use any hotel facilities so don’t worry if there is a shortage of facilities at the beach.

Lady’s Mile Beach is to the west of Limassol. It is the closest and most suitable choice, although is very busy. On summer weekends the five mile sandy beach is crammed with visitors and resident Cypriots all enjoying the clear, warm waters and the hot sunshine.

To the south of the beach is the trendiest. Relax here and get full use of the two decent tavernas and coffee bars on the beach. The one downside of this though is you will have to take your own shade.

Governor’s Beach: 20 miles east of Limassol exactly on the regions boundary. Take the once daily bus from Limassol that departs the harbour at 9.50am and passes by all the main hotels of the resort. There are actually a number of bays here that contain fine dark sand. All the beaches get very busy at the weekend, but a number of tavernas here offer much-needed refreshment.

Larnaca Bay: This is about a 45 minute taxi journey from Limassol. This is a lovely tiny sandy beach, child friendly with light waves. There is a kids’ play park on the beach that lets drained parents take a trip the restaurant where they can keep an eye on them from the shade.

Kourion Beach: This is perfect for swimming where you can combine a trip to the beach with a jaunt to the archaeological spot called the same name. Enjoy public transport from Limassol to this extended stretch, 11 miles from the resort. This is likewise popular shade less spot so you will need to take your own sun shade with you. There are three large tavernas to replenish lost fluids.

Paphos Inside the resort there is not much in the way of a beach except for some small and synthetically built sandy coves close to the main hotels, which tend to be very congested. Take a quick bus or taxi journey just along the coast where you will find some bigger stretches of good sand and pebble beach, perfect for sunbathing and taking it easy. A few of the bordering beaches to Paphos are: Floria Beach at Timi Village, CTO Beach below Yeroskipou, just east of Paphos, Coral Bay around seven miles from Paphos.

Polis Beaches: There are a mixture of pebbles and sand around Polis, which are not nicest on the island but are completely clean and do the trick if you want somewhere to sunbathe. The majority of them are well tended with a small few tavernas right on the beach. Therefore you can enjoy a cool beer as you sweat in the blistering heat.

The best beach in Polis is by the camp-ground, with a backdrop of eucalyptus groves this is exceptionally well located if you are camping at the camp-site.

Protaras Beach can claim to have one of the best beaches in anywhere for all inclusive Cyprus holidays. Protaras Beach has stunning golden sand and clear waters. The only thing about it though is it is very busy and almost spoils the look of it as every part is filled by tanned bodies, sun loungers and parasols. You need to venture a little way off the main strip and you will be able to locate a spot to lay out your towel and relax in peace.

Agia Triada, Protaras beginning at the top end of the strip, initially you come to a tiny bay at Agia Triada. The sand here may not be as soft as it could be but it does at a pinch. This part of the beach is operated as a launching spot for boats and jet skis, therefore it is not really chosen by holidaymakers to go to. This makes it perfect if you are looking somewhere to get away from the crowds.

Mouzoura Beach, This is only around 100m long and is well used with Cypriot families who congregate here. There’s a little shelter at one end so it makes it especially good. There is decent car parking provisions and also a decent restaurant.

Louma Beach in Pernera is shielded by a man-made bay making the water calm, thus good for swimming. Water sports are popular here and several good companies organise water skiing training, and have jet ski hire for around £27 for half an hour. There are also fun banana rides for as little as £6.50 a go, are you daring enough to try.
