  • Best Beaches in Cyprus

With crystal clear waters and sun-bleached sands stretching along the coastline of the island, Cyprus is indeed the ultimate summer destination. With more than 60 blue flag awarded beaches, Cyprus ranks highly against other seaside spots in the Mediterranean. Here are the top 5 beaches I think are the best in Cyprus.

Zapalo Bay

Set on the southwest coastline of the island, Zapalo Bay is a hidden treasure. It is located under the Sanctuary of Apollo Hylates and it will take a good 15-minute downhill walk in order to reach the bay.

As you walk down, you will get to enjoy incredible views of the unspoiled. Golden brown sand, steep cliffs, and submerged rocks are only a few of the natural treasures that you will get to see when you reach Zapalo Bay. If you’d like to get a glimpse of the sunset on your way back, then the ideal time to visit Zapalo Bay is in the afternoon.

Cape Greco

Lying at the southern end of Famagusta Bay, Cape Greco offers amazing landscape views with crystal clear azure seas, stunning rock formations, and sea caves that will take your breath away.

On land, you ‘ll get to enjoy the natural wilderness of the untouched area with numerous species of plants and birds while gazing at the panoramic views of the Mediterranean. In the sea, you ‘ll be captivated by the abundant native sea life and natural sea caves that are mesmerizing just to watch. Whether you’re into snorkelling, diving, kayaking, or swimming, Cape Greco is undeniably worth discovering!

Konnos Beach

Konnos beach, located in Famagusta, is one of the most well-known sea spots in the area and, without a doubt, among the busiest beaches of the country during the high season. The golden sand and shallow waters of Konnos beach make it an ideal summer spot for families with children.

There is also a beach bar within a walking distance from the beach, allowing you to grab refreshing drinks and snacks during the day. If you are feeling really hungry, the restaurants near the area promise to offer the best gastronomic experience whether you are looking for seafood, pasta, or meat.

If you’re addicted to adventure, then why not visit Konnos water-sports facility set on the west side of the coast? You can hire stand-up paddleboards, kayaks, and jet skis, or if adrenaline is what you are looking for, then go for a bumpy ride with the ‘flying fish’.

Coral Bay

If you’re looking for endless hours of relaxation, then Coral Bay is the place to be. Just nine kilometres north of Paphos, Coral Bay is easily accessible via a car. Regarded as one of the best sea spots in Paphos, Coral Bay is a top tourist attraction and usually very crowded during the summer months. Yet, despite its high popularity, the surrounding cliffs and clear blue waters make Coral Bay a must-visit destination!

From sun-loungers to coffees and snacks, you’ll find everything you need at your fingertips. For adventure seekers out there, you can also enjoy a wide variety of water sport options.

It’s no secret that Cyprus boasts some of the best beaches in the Mediterranean. Some are untouched and unspoiled, and some are highly organized, but they are both magical in their own way.
