|Being a small island in the Mediterranean Sea, there are literally hundreds of beaches one can visit. Here you can find a list of the most popular beaches to visit during your stay.
Fig Tree Bay
This Blue Flag awarded beach was recently voted as one of the best beaches in Europe, being ranked number 9.
Location: Protaras, next to the Capo Bay hotel
Yet another Blue Flag award receiver, this white sand beach is small yet picturesque.
Location: Ayia Napa, next to the Nissi Beach resort
Not a traditional beach in the sense of sprawling sandy shores, this is more suited for the adventurous due to the scuba diving sites as well as being the most popular spot for cliff diving on the island.
Location: Ayia Napa, close to the Grecian Park hotel
This is a small beach situated between Protaras and Ayia Napa which is more suited to families as the water is very shallow until quite far out.
Location: Ayia Napa
Golden sands and clear turquoise waters make this beach one of the best on the island.
It is great for families as well as it is quite shallow and there are also great spots for snorkelling.
Location: Ayia Napa, close to the Makronisos Village hotel.
