A Guide to the Beaches of Cyprus
Cyprus is divided into the northern and southern regions, and though they both differ in a certain way, the beauty seen on their beaches is never more the same.

Starting out with the northern part of Cyprus we look toward Kyrenia and the beaches surrounding. Sunset beach, located just 5miles from Kyrenia, would be an easy first choice, with well protected waters ideal for families with children. Alagadi turtle beach is also a good choice for those with children as their shallow waters go up to a well distance. What's most popular on this beach are the turtles which come to lay their eggs during the summer.

Some of the more popular beaches in the north like Diana, Escape and Acapulco beach hit the mark with plenty of services available as well. Water sports are easily available for those who don't wish to just to leave with a tan. For the young party goers, they'll be happy with Escape beach as during the summer open air night parties are held on the beautiful beach with music by great European Dj's.

For a much more secluded beach feeling, Karpaz Peninsula and Famagusta beach fulfil your wishes. Both beaches are said to be the best in Northern Cyprus with miles of golden sand and fantastic waters

Some of the most beautiful beaches in the country are said to be found in Southern Cyprus though, with the most famous bit being the coast of Ayia Napa. The beaches of Aiya Napa are considered to be the finest, with full facilities on almost all the beaches. Nissi beach, or Nissi Bay, which is 3km west of Ayia Napa, is visited by thousands each year for its sheer beauty. A little further up would be Pernera beach, located in the middle of Vathia Gonia and Katsarka beach. Pernera is famous for its fine golden sands and shallow waters and for good diving and snorkelling. Other famous beaches along Ayia Napa include Limnara and Konnos beach, the latter said to be the most picturesque beach on the island.

Limassol beaches are my "must go to "place as well. Unlike Ayia Napa and Kyrenia beaches, Limassol sand is dark and course and the shorelines are pebbly. However, it's just as beautiful as any other. Curium beach for example is said to have an unparallel beauty, with its rough and wild waters in contrast to its calm and gentle beach. If you want a less crowded beach, try Ladies Mile or Pissouri Beach which rarely gets overcrowded and lets you walk along the dark golden sand with your loved ones as the waves gently caress your feet.
