  • Makronissos beach or Candy beach as it is known is very secluded if you want to get away from the tourist beaches. It has a lovely cafe and safe for swimming with nice flat white sand. Sun beds have cushions on and 50 cents cheaper than the main beaches. At night in the summer it is transformed into beach parties on certain dates. Very relaxing and not far from Ayia Napa amenities. Would recommend to anyone for a relaxing few hours......
  • One of the best beaches in Cyprus! Golden sand, great view, suitable for snorkeling.
