Best beaches in Cyprus

Coral Bay

Rated as the best beach on the Western side of Cyprus, Coral Bay is a hit with both tourists and locals. Golden sands cover this spacious beach, where you will never struggle to find a peaceful spot for lazing under the sun. The clear waters are safe for all to enjoy, and with a variety of watersports, family-friendly activities and various places to eat; Coral Bay offers something for everybody. The beach also has a number of stunning coves nearby, which offer endless diving opportunities.


What's Nearby?

Just a short distance from the beach, you’ll find a handful of eateries including Blazing Saddles Cafe Bar which serves a mix of food and drink with regular entertainment. A visit to Muji Chinese is also worthwhile, if not for the food but the great views of the mountains. If you’re on a family break, head to Ithaki Amusement Park where you’ll find mini-dodgems, mini-golf and a small soft-play area. There are also a couple of supermarkets in the area should you need any essentials.


Pedaloes, jet-ski, kayaking, snorkelling, diving

Lady's Mile

Located on the edge of town, Ladies Mile is one of Limassol’s best kept secrets. You can walk undisturbed across the soft golden sand, taking in the natural beauty of this special beach. Owing to its location, the beach has a lack of natural shade which makes it a firm favourite with sun worshipers. Cool off by taking a dip in the refreshing waters, which also provide safe swimming conditions for everyone to enjoy. It’s this calm sea which attracts a number of daring windsurfers to the beach each year, while you’ll also find plenty of other watersports on offer.


What's Nearby?

If you’re feeling peckish or need a drink while visiting Lady’s Mile Beach, you’re in luck. Captain’s Cabin proves popular with tourists and serves traditional dishes such as fresh seafood and grilled meats. The restaurant also doubles as a bar and will have you dancing until the early hours. For those seeking an adrenaline rush, Fasouri Waterpark is just a short stroll from Lady’s Mile and is home to over 20 attractions.


Jet-ski, pedaloes, windsurfing, kayaking, boating, banana boat, snorkelling

Nissi Beach

Found in the Cypriot party capital of Ayia Napa, Nissi Beach is regarded as the best all-round beach on the island. White sands sweep across the bay whilst the tranquil blue waters are an ideal way to cool off. Entertainment is provided throughout the day with a selection of bars and cafes available to suit your mood, whether you’re looking to take a break or continue to soak up the party atmosphere. There’s also an exciting range of watersports to test yourself across the waves, or bungee jumps should you feel brave enough...


What's Nearby?

Nissi Beach is surrounded by beach bars and restaurants so you really will be spoiled for choice. Petra Snack Bar is great if you’re looking to grab something small while Acropolis is somewhere to enjoy a larger meal. Both eateries are located on the beach and offer great views. Grab some souvenirs at Stathis Shopping Center which is just a short walk away from the beach and home to a handful of shops.


Boating, pedaloes, jet-ski, waterskiing, windsurfing, sailing, kayaking, diving, snorkelling


This rustic beach can be found tucked away in the sleepy resort of Pissouri. Soft sand and clear waters at the untouched bay are difficult to resist, while the vast open space ensures a peaceful atmosphere. The beach is popular with watersports enthusiasts and there’s a fine range to choose from, whether you want to explore the coastline via the pedaloes or crash across the waves with a jet-ski. If you need a break from the beach, there are a number of Tavernas which line the sands at Pissouri, offering you the chance to try some of the delicious freshly cooked local dishes.


What's Nearby

For a bite to eat, a trip to Perry’s Beach Restaurant is highly recommended. Not only is it located right on the beach offering some great views and even greater food. Take a quick rest from sunbathing at Captain’s Bay where you can stop off for breakfast, lunch or even some evening cocktails. You’ll also find a number of supermarkets in the area that stock all the holiday essentials you need.
