On one section of the beach it is particularly Rocky so be careful. However there are "sandbag" paths you can use to access the water and keep your feet safe from harm. Renting a deck chair & umbrella are €2.50 each. Beach is relatively easy going but busy.

Too busy (at least for my taste). The actual sand area is tiny. The seashore and sea is full of rocks (the beach has multiple "sandbags made tracks" for tourists to get to the sea)

There are much better beaches in Ayia Napa, but Nissi is too loud, though it's a wonderful beach. On the contrary, Pantachou is the best beach to relax, thanks to the wonderful (and not so loud) music played by the wonderful DJ from nearby Paradisos Beach Bar. I could go to Pantachou Beach every day just because of that. Amazing,... More

We was at Nissi beach one day, and the other 13 days we stayed at this beach. The water was much cleaner and clear here than Nissi beach.

This is by far worst beach in Ayia Napa. A lot of rocks, 5 cm of sand. There is sandbag path leading into deeper water, with a bit less rocky bottom, but it is very slippery, so be careful.

Visited mid afternoon and this particular beach was packed, everyone like a tin of sardines! However, the waters were beautiful, crystal clear and very calm. Very near to Ayia Napa harbour so the very loud music coming from the boat trips/parties were off-putting.

Best visited by boat which will give you the best views of the caves and a well worth while half day out, boat trips are not particulary expensive but ver enjoyable.

I would give five points if there were no rocks in the water. Luckily they have made some paths, so you won't have to walk on the slippery rocks. The umbrellas and loungers cost 2€ or 2,5€ each. Food and drinks can be bought on the spot as well.

Close to many hotels in the quiet part of Ayia Napa, this sandy beach offers sunbeds and umbrellas at 2 euro each, use of shower included. behind the sandy part there is a grass area where you can also use sunbeds and umbrellas. Paradise beach bar offers nice food and drinks at good prices. If you need a nice beach... More
