“Commercial area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

The sea is very clean and the sand is wonderful, but it is a commercial area. On the other side of the beach there are a lot of restaurants, coffee shops and the marina is near.

“Larnaca Promenade”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We visit this area every year to take in the view from the plethora of restaurants and cafes which line one side of the road opposite Finikoudes Beach. Throughout the year this area hosts a number of events, some repeat and some new. The repeat Festival Stalls are a must and stretch almost the whole length of the road (about 1/2 mile). We particularly enjoy sitting in the outside area of the Alexandra Restaurant just before the old fort. The food there is excellent and real value for money.

“Holiday in Larnaca's Finikoudes beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

If you are planning a holiday in Cyprus, look no further than Finikoudes Beach. I spent two weeks there this summer and will only consider staying there on future trips to Cyprus. I have visited Cyprus about seven times and this is by far the most convenient location. Everything you could possibly need is within walking distance to the beach including an abundant supply of restaurants and bars and on the beach itself you will find a clean toilet/shower block. Good idea to hire sunbeds for the day from Stelios. He offers a great price and gives refreshing watermelon slices to his customers, a really lovely guy! I stayed above the Hagen Daas restaurant and had a breathtaking view from my wonderful self catering apartment's balcony. Finikoudes beach is especially great for families with very young children, as the seas tide tends to be very far out and there is a lot of scope for safe shallow play. Children play happily on the shore with very little risk due to the deep tide (OBVIOUSLY PARENTAL GUIDANCE IS NECESSARY AROUND WATER) and parents can enjoy the peace of mind offered by such an unusual beach.
There are ample amounts of family restaurants all catering for different pockets. I would highly recommend THE TUCK INN for meals especially lunchtime snacks. The food is always fresh and plentiful (trust me, only order one chicken kebab sandwich with all the various salad fillings available as this will COMFORTABLY feed two! Delicious and real chicken!)
Behind the main beach strip you can find several familiar shops such as Marks and Spencers Benneton and Zara nestled among more traditional Cypriot souvenir shops. Hot tip, do not buy goods for self catering needs from the expensive supermarkets on the beach front, walk five mins behind KFC and you will find excellent supermarkets (SMART supermarket in particular located in a car park) ,delicatessens and a great butchers. An added bonus is the available buses which leave from the beach front for various main towns such as Ayia Napa, Limassol and Pathos at very reasonable prices lessening the need for car hire. All in all Finikoudes Beach resort Larnaca, is a wonderful safe place to truly relax and enjoy a convenient family holiday . 10/10

“Take a stroll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Lovely beach and water very shallow and clean. Enjoy a stroll on promenade and do a bit of shopping . Good selection of restaurants close by. Make a visit to the castle on the front which is fully restored. Be better when the new access road is finished which seems to be taking a while.

“Just a town beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We did not like this beach. Water it's not too clear. There is road just behind. But it's cheap comparing to other places. And there is the advantage of having bars and cafes just a min walk.
