  • We decided to go to this beach because it is a perfect and decided to look like there. First-get uncomfortable, it is on the outskirts of Ayia Napa. Nothing special there. Small pljazhik, 2 bars, a bit of ležáky. A typical lagoon with blue water and nothing more. Many large and small stones. Nissi Beach better not seen the beach in Ayia Napa.

  • Without doubt, a beach and locality that is worth to be visited. Food, fun something wonderful. Live music and dancing on the sea. Visit that you will not be sorry.

  • Located not far from Ayia Napa, close to the area of Nissi. A good alternative to Nissi beach. If you have a car, you get to it will be not difficult, there is plenty of free parking. The beach itself is clean, with fine sand and gently sloping entrance to the sea. The water is clear and beautiful color, very picturesque. People don't so much as on the Nissi beach. The eastern part is much better than the West (on the western part of the dingy sand with pebbles and muddy water).

  • 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.
  • Excellent beach, not too overcrowded with very beautiful karst landforms.
  • One of the best beaches in Cyprus!!!...
  • Gorgeous... clean and crystal clear water
