If you find yourself on this beach you should visit the tiny chapel by the sea. It is an amazing place to have a wedding with the sea and the beach right next to you and nothing else around. A magical place.

Shallow, but very clean water. Perfect for family with kids. Sunbeds and umbrella - 2,5€ for each. Nissiki bar is only bar on the beach.

Visit the beach and beach bar it is really very good and not as busy as Ayia Napa. The sea is very calm but quite rocky to get in, we usually swim over to the island, but always put plenty of sun cream on as there is no shade

This is a lovely clean, well kept beach and is one of my favourite beaches in Ayia Napa. €7.50 for two sun loungers and umbrella. Sun beds well spaced out, popular with locals at weekends. A lovely shallow bay ideal for younger families. The only negatives is that in many areas it can be rocky when entering the water and... More

This beach is beautiful and the waters are crystal clear. There is a little island which you can walk out to as the water is so shallow. We went to Markonissis Beach initially but there was some oil patches in the water & rubbish so we came to Ayia Thekla instead which we loved. There was a wedding taking place... More

We had our wedding on Ayia Thekla beach and it was beautiful. It is a calm and quiet beach which is not over crowded and it has a nice beachside bar/restaurant which was lovely. Ayia Thekla was perfect for relaxing and we are already looking forward to visiting again next year :-)
