Visited on green Monday and enjoyed sea bass looking out over the ocean ..... Totally amazing. As a tourist if you visit on green Monday and yr a meat eater be prepared to be disappointed as this day is the Greek equivalent to lent. Any other time there are some pretty good restaurants and the views are seriously amazing

Nice small beaches, clean waters and wonderful caves. Fairly quiet too. Unfortunately the view is not that great due to the fact that a couple of industrial plants are situated nearby.

Nice beach and cafes. Very busy at the weekend with locals so get there early to get a sun lounger. Shower facilities available.

I have been coming to Cyprus every year, for the last 15 or so. Governor's beach, or one particular part of it, is my "heaven on earth". I go to the garden area of Sofroniou Beach Restaurant. Such a peaceful place. I call it my "happy place". Love going up for relaxing lunch at the restaurant too. Staying in Limassol... More

Very nice and clean waters for an afternoon swim. Didn't have the opportunity to try the beach bar but the water and sun beds were awesome. Had a great time with the kids and explored the small caves on the waterline lots of fun a must visit!!!

I go to this beach every time I am in Limassol. I like it because the local restaurant (I don't know the name as it's in Greek but it's run by father and son, Chris and Marino) has a grassy area so you don't have to be on the sand but are still close by the sea. The food is... More

Don't expect the sands of the middle east. The whole point of this bay is the eateries. Set in a nice bay but overshadowed by a power station it is what it is. Many places have grassed areas running down to the small sandy beach. Ideal for sunbathing under large trees giving shade. Another 10 minutes drive is Zigy well... More
