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

We only knew that this beach existed because someone recommend it to us, but I'm so glad they did. Golden sand on a gently curving bay with a rocky island just beyond which makes the waters perfect for swimming. The sunbeds are reasonably priced for the day and there are good quality umbrellas with small tables so you don't get... More

If you want a peaceful day by the sea then Ayia Thekla beach is definitely the place to be. Lovely soft sand; clear blue water; permanent breeze and all facilities including inexpensive sunbeds & brollies provided by Cyprus' very own Kojak! One of the nicest Cypriots you could wish to meet, Vassos has been running this beach for over 20... More
