  • The beach has white light sand and crystal waters. Clean and wonderful with plenty of watersports. Ideal for families  more »
  • Quiet surroundings, nice turkoskt water and Nice beach. Sun beds for 2, 50euro/chair. But! Only a beach shop that is extremely expensive. A small bag of sweets for 40 kr, a snickersglass for 60 kr, a small water bottle for 25 kr etc. etc. Also do not know if we had bad luck on that day but it was FULL of small green, stinging flies and ladybugs, and I mean really FULL. We could not stay with than 2h unfortunately.

  • The best beach on Cyprus. Perfect place 🌊🏝 Makronissos Beach is three beaches rolled into one, each with soft white sand and linked to its neighbours by coastal paths. With nearby tavernas and watersports, family-friendly Makronissos has lots going on. At night, its beach clubs open for business, and for two weeks every summer, there's a music festival.
  • Very beautiful beach, used both by the hotel guests, other tourist and locals. There were a couple of really windy days in November and all the sand in front of the hotel was washed away. Two chairs and an umbrella costed 7.50 euro and huge wooden beds 30 euro in 2018.
