Alagadi is a great beach. Plenty of parking, good restaurant that's surprisingly cheap and clean toilets. What more do you want?

This is what a beach should be like, nature rules here. Unlike the many ram packed private beaches where you can't even have a conversation over the loud techno music... none of that at agadi beach! Here its just sand, dunes and the ocean, you can rent an umbrella to shade you from the intense sun, but that is as... More

The goat she'd employs students from Exeter Uni to monitor the Green an Loggerhead turtles laying their eggs on the beach. If you are lucky you can join their nightly watch and will be invited to watch the turtles up close whilst they are in their 'hormonal trance'. It was an amazing thing to see which I will never forget.

My favourite beaches east of Girne. Alagadi 1,2, & 3 are all fabulous but Alagadi 3 is the most wild and least spoilt with its sand dunes, beach flora and wonderful rock formations. Alagadi 2 has a lovely sandy beach and there are showers, some shops and a good cafe.

It amazes me to see reviews that it was "hot"...... What do you expect in the Summer in Cyprus? This is an uncommercialised beach so you take your own chairs and umbrellas etc but it is refreshing not to see rows of sunbeds and umbrellas filling the beach. It is a lovely sandy beach with dunes behind. Unfortunately, the power... More

Would advise visiting the "Goat Shed" the head quarters of the turtle watch project during the day to book an evening visit to watch turtles laying their eggs in the sand in late spring and later in August/September to watch the hatchlings make a dash for the sea

This is probably not the best nor the cleanest beach you will ever see. I agree with those reviewers who complain it is dirty, but too often it is other visitors who leave it in that state. What is special about this beach is the project run by students from Exeter University to help conserve nesting turtles on the beach.... More

We visited in June/July and it was extrenely hot. Not a lot to look at as the turtles lay at night and the beach is closed to tourist whilst this happens. Not sure when they release the turtles here, There is a bar which sells food and drinks and you can hire a sun bed. The beach is vast and... More

This is a huge beach where turtles nest. Sadly it is not always respected by the locals or visitors. The turtle project people help the hatchlings to make it to the sea. You can arrange to be there when nests are excavated. the bar/cafe is fine for lunch.

One of North Cyprus' best beaches! If you're lucky enough, watching (and helping) the baby caretta carettas little steps into to the sea is priceless :)
