We have now visited this beach a few times and always enjoy the spacious taverna, the boardwalk and the easy, plentiful parking. We have never been when it is busy but apparently there are occasional boat trips that call in.

Being on the more exposed north of the island and with a wide open bay, this beach varies considerably with the weather. Over the last two weeks we have experienced everything from flat calm to crashing seaspray that soaked everything. This is a great beach...More

One of our favourites. On the North side so catches cooling breezes. Easily accessible via the asphalt road from Troulos. Gritty sand but it brushes off easily. Long expanse to walk along. Beach shelves quite steeply so deep water near the shore. Sea is blue/clear...More

We hired a small Suzuki Jimmy 4 x 4 and went to this beach over the mountain on very rough sand roads; though it is accessible using “main” roads. Plenty of parking is available and an enormous Taverna. I asked "why so big?" and was...More

We visited this beach for lunch when we did the round the island boat trip. Pleasant enough but not a place where I would make an effort to return to.

We were advised to go here by our host at the hotel where we stayed. It was a beautiful quiet beach - sandy and a little pebbly. It's off the beaten track and there's no sun beds there which is why it's so peaceful. There's...More
