The water is crystal clear, there are some rocky areas underwater but goes out to a little island you can wade to and there is a picturesque church on the hillside. You can hire umbrellas and sun...

A new clean beach with a good restaurant nearby. Go on Wednesday mornings and there is a good market within walking distance. Shallow water so good for children. Plenty of sun beds and umbrells

An undiscovered part of Cyprus just minutes away from the main beaches of Ayia Napa. The beach is superb and the small bay is safe and fairly shallow for children.

One of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been to! Powder white sand and crystal clear water. You can walk forever and the water is only up to your knees. Warm Mediterranean water. Restaurants and bars on site with pub-grade food. Not the greatest but hits the spot. Ample parking. There is a gift shop across the parking lot... More

Asia Thekkla Beach: Bigger, enter and less crowded than Nissi Beach. Plenty of car parking too. The cafe/restaurant is a bit hit and miss on quality but you can't beat a glass of wine on the patio looking out to sea. Handy for the dual carriageway and there are plenty of properties to rent in Thekkla for a holiday. Agia... More

I know of this beach because i stayed in the Ayia Thekla villa district with family and friends. The compound is secured off and there are under 100 villas that have direct access to the beach. Our villa was at the front line and we could literally walk down the garden and walk right on to the beach. It was... More

A good car park, slim beach with sun beds and umbrellas €2.50 each. Toilets clean, there is a bar but the food is not good. Beach staff friendly as always. This beach is man made and the water is clear but extremely rocky near on impossible to have a descent swim.

Quiet people - lets keep this little gem a secret. Loved it when the old restaurant was there - but saying that the new build's food is top notch. The chap on the beach remembers you from one year to the next. We did try Paphos this year but missed this side of the island, the beaches over there are... More
