Worth it! The stones are blazingly white and stunning!

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.

We came here for an afternoon swim. The waters are crystal clear, and there are some caves to be explored if one wishes too. Away from the crowds, it seldom has many people even in July, however this beach is not my piece of cake since it is an open sea and coves are more preferable to me. In the... More

Been here many a time and this is one of the better beaches of Cyprus. The water is clear, sand is clean and there are a few good places to eat like Adamos or Kalymnos. Some people even have their wedding reception events here for the view and the sunsets.
