Do not expect to see turtles here, as they are well protected (good!). Still the place is a must if you like secluded beaches and great scenery. The place is hard to get. Do not worry that you need a SUV. We arrived at the beach itself in a Nissan Micra (when not raining). There is not much food to buy around, so do treat the trip as a picnic and take your own food.

Water in the bay is hot, beach is sandy with some small rocks here and there.
The views, best on Cyprus beaches.

There is nothing to see here. The beach is lovely, the soft sands must attract the turtles. You will not see anything regarding the turtles as the eggs are harvested by the ecologists and the hatchlings are then released in secret

Thi si a lovely bay. We visited as part of a jeep safari and were amazed at the beach and the information on display was helpful.

We only had time for a tea break at the cafe but I would like to return, it's a small family run restaurant with a great looking traditional menu.

Cyprus in general is not very existing if you don't have a 4x4 vehicle. But if you have one, don't miss the turtle reserve bay. It's educational, tons of fun trails and amazing beaches. The tiny turtles are fun for the kids. It's a shame the place is so neglected. More activities would help the kids to understand the life of the turtles. Overall, it's one of the places you want to be in Cyprus.

Had a fabulous day on the beach very quiet and out of the way but a 4 x 4 needed to get there. The cafe was good and the locals very accommodating
