Drove down to the beach for a drink and found a lovely big cafe/restaurant on the beach. Great view, small beach - very nice.

“A great beach with good resturants to try.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

The beach is great for kids, shallow water is safe. Several good restaurant, I recommend the Lefkoniko Restaurant, park in their carpark and walk through to the grassed area or the beach beyond.

“Michael G”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

Visited Governors Beach about 10 times over our stay in Cyprus and other than the beaches by Ayia Napa/Protaras, GB must be the best on the island. If you buy a drink or eat at any of the cafes/restaurants/Kentra you do not have to pay for a sunbed and you can chose to lay on the sand or much cooler grass. The sea is very clean and even if you go out say 100 metres you can still see the bottom, therefore great for swimming and with the good variety of kentra (Andreas and Melanies our favourite) GB is just a great place to chill and better than anything in Limassol itself. In fact i use to drive the 15-20 minutes from Limassol and therefore pass a number of beaches before reaching GB but the drive is well worth it. The only slight criticism is that on either side of GB are ugly looking power stations but they are far enough away not to disturb the peace and tranquility.
