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

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.

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.

The restaurants at governers beach serve wonderful food at reasonable prices. Each time we visit cyprus we always save a day each week for governors beach as it is a favourite of ours. But beware dont visit on a sunday as it id filled with the local cypriots on their family day out
