There is a lovely restaurant there called Kalymnos Restaurant where the serve the most wonderful fish. Service is good, other diners are friendly. Outside, at the rear of the restaurant, there are lovely lawns and it is right on the sea. Would recommend.

This is a nice little beach to spend a couple of hours at with good restaurants. The downside is that there is an industrial site one side of it.

Very poor rocky area. Great views of industry. Not worth the effort. Nothing of any beauty at all. Words fail me as to why anybody would want to come here.

Was expecting a huge golden sandy beach but just found several restaurants next to each other which you have to walk through to get to a shallow beach with odd colour sand and great views of the power station. Nothing seemed to be open this time of year so didn't spend much time there.

Well it has a greenish sand and a smallish cliff. There are excellent views of the tanker terminal, a power station and what looked like a tank farm. It has clearly seen better days.

one of the prettiest places of cyprus and definitely limassol. the important thing is though is when u'll turn towards the sea not to go left side, where restaurants and other signs of civilization are but turn right, go as far u can by car, then drop it and go down on the beach and enjoy its unbelievable and unique...

My favorite beach near Limassol. Sandy and sheltered, once I had a school of fish curiously checking me out ( they thought I was a fat seal beached and helpless!). Busy in summer, yours exclusive at other times of the year. Have swam in December very comfortably.

This area is very attractive so long as you don't look at the power station to your left. The beach cafe is ideally situated and is open according to the weather. Basic toasted sandwiches and beer are served by friendly staff - you can request the addition.of chips (not real) from the main restaurant. Beach is difficult to access down... More

To say this beach is often mentioned as somewhere to visit, I am at a bit of a loss as to why. Whilst there is by all accounts a very nice restaurant overlooking the beach, the beach itself is nothing special - quite narrow and very rocky and not very pretty. Towering cliffs overhead and a view of a power... More
