Cyprus Beaches
A number of the beaches are well known for a variety of reasons.

Lady’s Mile on the eastern side of the Akrotiri peninsula was named after the horse that used to be ridden along the beach by its owner every morning.

In Larnaca, one of the most popular beaches is MacKenzie, which is lovely and sandy with restaurants close by and if you have a plane spotter in the family he will kept quite happy watching the aircraft on their final approach into Larnaca Airport.
As well as these larger more popular beaches, there are plenty of smaller ones to discover including Ayios Yeoryios Alamanas with its large smooth pebbles and clear blue water   Ayia Varvara with its sandy beach and popular coastal walk – both beaches are east of Paphos.

In the Paphos area there are the Municiapl Beach in the town and the beaches at Yeroskipou and Coral Bay for family fun, but if you want to find somewhere a little more off the beaten track thrre is the small stony beach at Timi which has its own spiral staircase and several little bays at Peyia Sea Caves. Beyond in the Akamas there are the beautiful beachesof Toxeftra and the Lara headland and an assortment of little bays right up to the point at Cape Arnaouti. The beaches right along the northern coast are often deserted  during weekdays.

Beaches - one of the most important aspects of any Cyprus holiday
Cyprus Beaches

An important part of everyone’s Cyprus holiday is having the chance to relax on the beach and listen to the sound of the waves

Which Cyprus beach suits you best is a very subjective! Whilst many love being on a sandy beach close to a tavern and plenty of water sports action, others find the idea of a quiet secluded beach far more appealing. Some don’t like sand at all and would much prefer some wide flat rocks with the water lapping underneath and some rock pools to explore too! The best news of all is that Cyprus definitely has a beach for you!

For those with young families there are 49  Blue Flag beaches in Cyprus, which means they are manned by qualified lifeguards and good toilet facilities close by.

There are Blue Flag beaches in all parts of Cyprus (your local CTO has the full list) but in Ayia Napa all 23 beaches have been awarded the Blue Flag – the densest concentration of Blue Flag beaches in the world – now that says something! Other popular beaches to be flying the Blue Flag include Phinikoudes McKenzie in Larnaca,
