Much quieter than the other beaches we have visited in the Ayia Napa area. Sunbeds and brollies available to hire, beach attracted a few families but was generally fairly quiet, music was heard from the otherwise tasteful and discrete beach bar. Lovely restaurant set back off the beach. White sands but sea was quite rocky but seemed very safe. I... More

The beach is small in comparison to its more famous beaches along the coast and for that reason it is worth serious consideration as in the height of the season it is less crowded.

Nice and peaceful beach for those who want to relax away from loud music and crowded places. The water is clear, shallow and turquoise with a tiny island. Normally there is a lifeguard on duty but the day we went no one was there, despite the fact that it was windy.

This beautiful quiet clean beach is the best place to relax and enjoy swimming in the sea. After the hub and buzz of of Ayia Napa's beaches one must unwind on Ayia Thekla's beach.

The attraction of Ayia Thekla beach is that it is a throw back. 1970s Cyprus. Unspoilt, naturally beautiful. As good as anywhere in this region for snorkelling. The golden sandy beaches can get busy with on the weekends with local Cypriots. You risk stubbing your toe on a few rocks as you wade through the crystal clear waters, but that... More

The closest beach to where we stay, within walking distance. Modernised recently with a fabulous new beach bar.

Great little place to relax, but you need transport if you're staying in Ayia Napa, but closer to the waterpark

This beach is quieter than some of the tourist beaches. Has some rocks and places for the children to explore. Food and shop. At the weekend there is a market - watch out for the excellent homemade cake store.
