We found the road driving to the beach quite rough and difficult to drive (due to rain). Would recommend anyone going to take a 4x4 in the winter or go in summer when the turtles are nesting. The beach is nice - very rugged and remote.

Don't just go to Cyprus and prop up the pool bar! Get out and enjoy the natural beauty that Cyprus has to offer. It's not all bars and karaoke bars there is real beauty and masses of history. Well worth a visit

What a lovely beach. Oct is the perfect time to visit Cyprus. We went for a week and it was absolutely great weather. It was a shame turtle season was over. We played in the beach more than half a day. But there are no toilets or changing places in the bay.
