Beaches in Cyprus that worth to visit

It is quite unfair to write only about the best, Blue-Flag beaches in Cyprus, because all beaches are unique for their nature, facilities, location, and water. Living in Cyprus for more than 10 years, we can honestly say that most are yet not discovered.

Traveling in Cyprus, no matter which area you will get — you will always find a place: beach, shore, the coastline where you can chill during the hot summer, or get warm near crystal clear water under caressing sun during the winter period.

Of course, when you leave near the beach, you have plenty of things to do and often prefer to go hiking in the mountains instead of spending the whole day on the beach, but anyway, swimming and sailing in the sea, it is part and parcel of our lives.

We prepared for you a list of beaches that you will definitely enjoy during summer, they are all located close to the limassol, so no matter how you will reach them, by car or by sailing boat, or by foot.

Of course there are much more, but if you stay in Limassol and have the ability to visit these beaches by car or by boat — you will truly enjoy and discover unique places and bring with you unforgettable memories and experience.

Columbia beach

This beach is located in the center of Limassol. Locals call this place for the last year 'Columbia'. It is a particularly impressive destination for any hour, day, or season.

The coastline is fairly narrow, but the facilities are amazing. There are showers and changing rooms, restaurants, bars, pool just a few steps from the sea, group sandpits in the grass area. The beach attendants are more than happy to serve snacks or chilled drinks from the gastronomic bar or will provide you with brunch and dinner options. During the summer in this area, a lot of turtles are swimming very close to humans, if you like snorkeling — it's a safe and beautiful place for it.

Right next to the Columbia beach, there are two sailing clubs. Local regattas often take place in front of this beach, so that you can observe the races from the best location.

Governor's Beach

The sunset and sunrise on this beach are amazing with its white cliffs and crystal clear blue sea creating picturesque images.

Kourion beach

If you love waves, it's a must-visit place. The Kourion beach is about 2 km long, and the strong west wind is never-ending here.

Overlooking of this bay is possible by visiting the archaeological site of the ancient Greco-Roman amphitheater of Kourion that is located right above the beach. The west wind in this bay is very strong, and makes it difficult to reach the beach from the sea, but if you travel with your car — it’s that place that is definitely worth to see.
