“Absolutely amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

We decided this beach to by our "goodbye" to Cyprus after some years and we didn't regret it. At first I really like the story of Aphrodite foam-arisen in this beach (in one of the myth's versions). It is interesting to realize that this beach is foamy most of the times which of course makes sense and justifies the myth. What you see when you approach the beach is spectacular. However, there seems to be a nasty tradition to band tapes or paper in bushes on the beach that we found really ugly. The sea was actually unexpecetdly cold but if you decide to enter you will realize that it is not cold afterall and that you can spend much time within the sea. The scenery is just amazing and ideal for pictures, especially in the afternoon. Take lots of photos, you will rememeber me when you arrive home.

“Ok”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

A bit disappointed all I can say is do not get your hopes up to much. The walk is quite long for something so small to see.
