    Big big big turtle!
    Very beautiful place, good sandy beach, clear water. On the left (east) side of the beach near rocks we saw a really big turtle! We were lucky, just came to the beach, went into water and even didn't try too much to find her. Strongly recommend for snorkeling.

    Stunning calm bay with crystal clear water
    Stunning beach, loved it! Something for everyone, water sports for teens, shallow warm water for younger children, romantic sunsets for two. Beautiful crystal clear water. Highly recommend. We went later in the day so it was easy to park and found space nearer the beach. Konnos Bay is accessed by a steep downhill walk if you’re unable to park near the beach be prepared to walk.

    Get there early!
    Main advice: Get there early to bag a sunbed! We went on a Friday, got the bus from Protaras (Nos 101 or 102, very quick, took just under 10 mins), got to beach at 9:15am and beds/umbrellas were plentiful (two beds and an umbrella cost €7.50). By 10-10.15am all the beds were taken! I’m not sure I’d describe the beach and bay as ‘pretty’, the ramshackle water-sports huts add a ‘shanty-town’ vibe to part of the beach, however it’s worth a day trip for the calm and shallow sea and nice café/restaurant. It does get very busy on the beach, the trek to and from the bus stop takes 10/15 mins and is a bit of a killer in the afternoon sun on the way back up. On the whole, worth a trip but get there early!

    The best beach and water i've seen :*
    Konnos Bay is a beautiful beach located in Ayia Napa, Cyprus. It is a small, secluded cove with clear blue waters and golden sand. The beach is surrounded by pine trees and cliffs, providing a scenic backdrop. Konnos Bay is a popular spot for swimming, sunbathing, and snorkeling. There are also a few restaurants and bars located near the beach. The price of sunbeds and umbrellas at Konnos Bay is on the higher side, but it is in line with the prices of other beaches in Ayia Napa. If you are looking for a more affordable option, you can bring your own beach gear. Overall, the review is positive and suggests that Konnos Bay is a great place to visit. If you are looking for a beautiful and secluded beach in Cyprus, I would recommend checking it out. Here are some additional things to keep in mind about Konnos Bay: The beach can get crowded, especially during the summer months. If you are looking for a more peaceful experience, try visiting early in the morning or late in the afternoon. There is a small entrance fee to the beach. There are no lifeguards on duty, so it is important to be aware of the risks of swimming in the ocean. I hope this helps!

    Beautiful and crystal clear blue sea
    This is my favourite bay the view from the top is amazing. The sea is crystal clear and sand soft and white. You can just walk into the sea and see everything under the water it also has an abundance of little fish and is good for snorkelling and swimming. The beach has lots of sunbeds and cost €2.50 each bed and the same for an umbrella. There are also water sports available and boat hire. There is a cafe at the top of the walk down to the bay which has toilets and changing area. There is also some changing huts on the beach. A lifeguard is also on the beach. It has a carpark with a few disabled spaces but this gets very busy early on. I have been coming here for many years and it has become very popular but still remains beautiful and my favourite bay in this area.

    Beautiful beach and stunning clear waters! Little gem
    Konnas Bay is an absolute gem of a beach that you simply must visit. With its breathtaking beauty and stunning scenery, it's easy to see why it is one of my favourite spots. Access is a breeze by car, and off-season, you'll have the beach all to yourself. But even in the peak season, don't worry - just get there early to secure your spot. You'll be rewarded with extra clear waters and rocks perfect for snorkeling. I even spotted a turtle on one of my visits! To make the most of your day, I suggest bringing your own drinks and snacks to avoid getting caught out by the high prices at the kiosk/cafe. There are toilets and changing rooms available for your convenience. Trust me, Konnas Bay is a must-see destination that you won't regret visiting.

    Pretty little beach
    A very nice little beach, even though somewhat crowded (31.5). We managed to get sunbeds by chance and the price is reasonable (7,5€ for 2 beds and an umberella). Shallow, crystal clear water and a beach bar where you get snacks and drinks.

    Beautiful beach
    Beautiful beach with clean water, soft sand in a pretty remote location. Very easy to get there with the bus. The beach is not that big, which might be good because will not get very crowded. Make sure to go early if you want a good spot. Some people might put music and can be disturbing. Many fish and rocks with sea grass to explore, even rocks from which to jump into the water. I recommend this place

This became our go-to beach after trying out a few in the area. 10 minute drive from Ayia Napa. Parking down a narrow road. Sheltered beach is handy when high winds meant the main beaches in Ayia Napa had waves too big for my kids. There is a rock which is good for diving, even small kids. There is a larger rock if you are braver, but can be dangerous so pick your landing spot carefully. The kiosk has very tasty snacks, drinks and icecreams for lunch. Water sports are available. Sun loungers are a premium and you have to be quick and ruthless, but dont give up, just keep an eye out for people getting ready to leave, or just take your own umbrella and towels. Water is crystal clear, calm and not too deep, so kids can play unsupervised in the shallows.

We have just returned from Cyprus and this beach was the star of the holiday for me. We arrived before 10 am which was just as well as all the sunbeds were full by about 10.30-10.45. We enjoy snorkelling and we saw more here than anywhere else we have visited in Cyprus including Ayia Napa, Nissi, Protaris, Coral Bay and Paphos. There were many fish along the rocks in front of the lifeguard hut and in the sheltered area surrounded by rocks on the left of the beach. However, after swimming out a bit further and then on round the corner to the left and in to the shallow waters by the far cliff we found a number of turtles feeding, one really large one and several smaller ones. We loved watching them come up to breathe with their little heads poking up through the surface of the sea. Round that same side of the beach we also saw a Lion Fish which are not indigenous to the area and are very venomous and presumably arrived in the area via the Suez Canal. They are not aggressive so will not approach you and will tend to keep their distance but you need to be aware that there could be one in that area and be careful not to touch them. The water is crystal clear and calm and the bay itself is beautiful. We were staying on the outskirts of Ayia Napa and a taxi for 5 people cost us 15 euros although I think you could get there by bus as well. There are toilets, watersports and a cafe/bar also at the beach. Would strongly recommend

Lagoon has a solid beach and very nice water.
Main disadvantage that beach is being too overcrowded ( even during Covid19 season).
I would recommend visiting Ayia Thekla beach instead or Nissi beach.

PS: in general I would avoid eating in almost all beach clubs, they are overpriced and food quality is way too bad.

Enjoy your stay 🇨🇾😎

We took the bus from the centre and had the day at the beach. We reached it from the road and walked down the big stepped path, renting the sunbeds like all of Cyprus’ beaches.

It was lovely, very picturesque but the choice of snack bar for food and drinks was limited to one and it was expensive, as should be expected in such circumstances but still a bit disappointing.

I'd highly recommend Konnos Bay as it's beautiful. Snorkelling is wonderful there too with so many fishes of so many colours to see! There's lots to do here, you can go on jet skis and other boats and there is also a diving club there too, for the more professional person! If you want fun in the sun this is the place to go!
There is a restaurant there too if you get hungry plus toilets and shower. The restaurant was nice, I'd review it if only I could remember it's name!
It's a bit of a hike from the car park as there are many steps to get to the bay, but there is disabled access.
The views from up high were fantastic.

A nice beach around Aiya Napa. In mid April it wasn't crowded at all. You can walk from there to the Cape Greco National Park.

There are beds to rent for 2.5 euro each, similarly to other beaches around. Toilets available and a Kiosk and Restaurants around. There is a walk to go down to the beach that is a little steep if you come by bus. If you come with a car you can get directly to rhe beach.
