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

Had a great meal at the restaurant here. Beach is almost nothing. Not sure why the governor would have suned himself here.

For many years I have been on holiday to Cyprus and when going for a day out by the sea, always go to Governor's beach and Sofronious Restaurant. It's a little out the way but well worth it. Free parking, free sun loungers and umbrellas on the grassed area just above the beach, as long as you eat at their... More

We had heard a lot about thus beach but wonder why. There are other better beaches to visit. Try aphrodites beach which is about 20ks away.

Easy parking. Good beachside cafe's with no hassle. Not commercialized. Good place for family day in sea but no enough for older children to do.

Beautidul beach. We parked next to angelos faros restaurant and were happy to find a good playground for our child. The beach has many taverns and showers cost 50 cent. The next day we followed the signs to the campsite and there was another part of that beauty, a less popular beach with no public shower and only 1 tavern... More
