I wonder why the government has allowed this area to become so grim. The promenade is run down and very shabby. No rows of palm trees here or nice paving...just a broken wall and old bins and plenty of weeds !

A lovely beach but there are no sunbeds to hire or parasol's which is a shame as the sand is extremely hot and you cannot stay around on it too long without shade

Nice sandy beach with lifeguards. Safe for swimming. Good range of bars & eateries. Stefanios provide a wide range of superb ice cream. Bus routes 4 & 8 serve the bay on a regular basis. It's on the East, so the Sun gets hidden by the Rock relatively early in the evening. So best to do your beach bits in... More

A fantastic beach with truly amazing ocean views. There are bars and restaurants in close proximity of the beach. A picturesque little fishing village.

This is a very friendly area and a lovely sandy beach. One side has been roped off with buoys for children and there's plenty of variety in terms of places to eat. There's also a little shop selling flip-flops, parasols, chairs and buckets & spades etc. There are two toilets/wash facilities with beach attendants at either end of the bay.... More

Visited the hotel in the bay for a cocktail on balcony. Cocktails £9.50 but worth it for the peaceful ambience of the hotel. Lovely bar and restaurant. Will return.
