Parking available, good beach-side restaurant with clean WC facilities. Spoilt area by litter but so is so much of North Cyprus, unfortunately.

We had been told that we could get the best salad on the island here, and that the beach was great. Unfortunately the weather was incredibly wet that day so we arrived in the rain and spent the whole time in the cafe, trying the salad, which was fine but not special. I was disappointed that there wasn't more info... More

We wanted to find a beach that was like what you would want a beach to be, great sandy beach, good looking sea etc, well the sea was great but I'm afraid the beach might be good with the turtles but not for us, it wasnt the cleanest ie litter and the beach itself isnt that appealing either, sorry but...

After reading the reviews here, I was gutted to arrive at what could be an absolute paradise. Can't imagine how the poor turtles find their way to the shore with the horrific obstacle course created by broken glass, plastic bottles, cans and all sorts of rubbish from previous visitors. Definitely not something I would recommend.

Perhaps we were especially lucky, but the day we were there ,only two other couple could be seen anywhere. After a liesurely stroll along the shore, we settled in for an hour or so at the western end, where rocky outcrops make an interesting headland. Shallow, warm water, lots of fish and shrimps to nibble your toes and tiny shells... More

Lovers of sea life will find this of immense interest and very enlightening especially if you haven't seen any programs on television about these lovely creatures.

Wonderful stretch of unspoilt beach, left natural and protected by the Turtle Project. It's not uncommon to see markers where the nests are and you can, by appointment, go to see the hatchlings make their way to the sea, at the right time of the year.

Choose less crowded days (weekdays or working hours) and you will have the whole beach for yourself. It's a sandy beach where carrettas are nesting... so if you visit around late August early September you can observe the baby turtles coming out of their eggs and running to the water. It has very nice cafe for snacks and grills, also... More

We searched out this beach to see if we could drop on seeing some sea turtles. We were not disappointed. Although the beach is busy with what seemed to be locals enjoying the sea and waves, it didn't look too clean with rubbish left over parts. First we dropped on the students from Exeter University excavating a turtles nest to... More
