After a great walk from Alamanou its great to stop at Andreas & Melani for a much needed drink and rest. The staff are very welcoming and the environment is scenic. Unfortunately on the day we went there was a dreadful smell - perhaps the bins needed emptying. It really spoilt our enjoyment.

Lovely quiet and out of the way spot. If you are looking for Throbbing music, acres of noise and overcrowded restaurants then avoid this place, it is an oasis of tranquillity and situated at least 10 miles from the nearest traces of tacky tourism

A good view of sunsets as well as a good beach. It also has a good choice of restsurants. Very popular with locals on Sundays.

As a stop over we stayed here a little - hardly anyone just yet but the stones are stunning and vibrantly lovely just as the pictures show here :-)!

between Cypriots as it it on weekends crowded and one finds himself squeezed like a Sardine on the beach... Who wants peace and quiet and no kids around should rather avoid it, especially on weekends... I can't really judge the situation during the week. A nice feature is that there is nicely maintained lawn areas which makes barefootness pleasurable... A... More

.... away from the maddening crowd. Lovely little bay to soak up the sun but you do need to negotiate the steps down to it. A lovely view from the dining area which is very popular with locals for a wedding venue during the height of the season - but as we don't come away then it isn't a problem... More

This beach is a bit off from Limassol, so you would need a car, scooter or something to get here. Good and beautiful mixture of rocks, cliffs and sand.
