Nice beach

Very nice and calm beach. Came in twice, the second time early in the morning, bit of a gasoline smell from passing ships that dissipated eventually.

A lovely sandy beach, quite secluded but ideal for snorkeling and sunbathing. Umbrellas and sunbeds available. Good food also served at the hotel and also the Beach-side Restaurant. Facilities also for changing for the beach and good toilets. Pretty good all round.

This was a good recommendation made by our hosts. The place is easy to find off the A1 and you are spoilt for choice with access points and places to eat.

Very friendly locals, a good snack bar next to the beach with a main bar and restaurant located up some steps overlooking the sea. Sun beds available to hire. A lovely little cove.

Governor 's beach is unique in Cyprus as it has white rocks. The sea is very clean and safe but for me the water is COLD!!!! I got used to Protaras warm waters so I found this cold!! Of course my children loved it!!! If you like cool waters visit Governor's beach!!!!!

Outside Limassol on the way to Paphos is this nice beach (beaches). It consists of several small bays, divided by white cliffs. Almost each has a small bar or taverna with sunbeds and umbrellas. As they're apart from big cities they're not crowded. A perfect place to cool yourself when touring the island.

this used to be a quaint little restaurant, nestled away in the beautiful quiet garden, with a nice little bay stretching in front of it... go in july, and its a packed, loud, badly managed place, with terrible food, overpriced, zero customer service, and attitude by the waiters... so sorry to have to write this, but you have lost us...

The view is spectacular and the restaurant has some great dishes and quit resonable for a couple or a family. Nice beaches below and easy parking.
