A delightful place to travel to from Limassol. Excellent restaurants and a beautiful beach. Do take your insect repellent as the mozzies love fresh meat!

Lovely beaches, relatively quite, you do lose the sun earlier than other beaches because of the rocks, changing facilities available and beach kept tidy.

We didn't manage to get down to the beach as it was too cold for a paddle being January. The restaurant was huge, and quite bush with Cypriot families which is always a good sign. The gardens there were nice and I'm sure this place would be paradise on a summers day.

Fantastic sandy beach in bays, have been coming here since before it was developed, definitely more quiet and peaceful than the more touristy beaches around the main resorts, always try and plan a day out here each time we visit the island

This was a great little beach. To get to the secluded coves just walk to the right through the shallow waters around the cliff. You can lay in the shade of the cliff right next to the water and go for a dip in the sea when you fancy.

White chalk cliffs and black sand! It was surrounded by clear water and no people on the beach. Perfect. No rubbish anywhere to be seen and a life guard nearby in case of difficulties. He was clearly under employed! There are restaurants nearby, but not much else. free parking above the beach. worth a look if only for the smooth... More

A lovely quiet beach normally however building / excavation work is being carried out which is noisy, smelly and unpleasant. Avoid for the time being.

I visited Sofronious Restaurant and used their free sunbeds in their well kept garden area leading down to the beach. The restaurant offers very good food at reasonable prices.
