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

There is not much of a beach but the local restaurant has well managed gardens and a strip of sandy beach. The remainder of the area can be rocky with some isolated coves. A great place for a meal but as a beach it is not much to write home about.

Nice to walk along the water's edge away from traffic. Good changing views of sea between mill pond like one day and surfing waves another day! Not a typical sandy beach though.

There aren't many camp sites in Cyprus but this one is acceptable price and standard-wise. If you're a keen camper, don't go there expecting facilities like you'd find in the majority of UK camp sites. The showers and toilet blocks are cleaned daily and are acceptable and adequate. However, when you can wander down to the glorious beach and sea... More

Governors beach is a gem. It is a bit far from Limassol , 15 - 20 minute drive , with 3 or 4 places that you can eat and bath with convenience. Sea is not the best in the island but the atmosphere and food more than compensate for that. I always visit Sofroniou beach restaurant because I find the... More

Bit of a climb down and up but well worth the effort. Lovely, secluded area with warm, crystal-clear water.
