CEB1 1409 Nea Famagusta, Protaras

The perfect antidote for the high temperatures of the coming weekend is nothing more than a dip in the sea! We gathered the 10 most popular beaches in Ayia Napa and Protaras so that we can bring them back to your memory! So what are you waiting for! Get organized and go to the beach!


Cavo Maris: The family
On the map: Under the Cavo Maris hotel.
Beach: Organized things, you just have to go relatively early.
Strong points: The ice cream maker who comes every hour, refreshes you both with his characteristic voice and his tastes. While the after nails in beach volleyball are what you need.

Green Bay: The green
On the map: He turned in front of Cavo Maris on Tasos Isaac Street and on the branch of the road, go right.
Beach: Not very organized! Few sunbeds.
Strong points: The scenery, green and blue, is in perfect harmony. The sea in front of you, the pines behind.

Boobs: The friendly
On the map: Turn right towards the Cavo Maris Hotel to Vyzakia. Park at the end of the road and walk to the sea until you find the path. The beach is located 200 meters to the left.
Beach: Small beach, so relatively few sunbeds, so it would be good to go prepared that you may not find. Have a towel with you.
Strong points: And you walk and you go and you go and it doesn't say the sea is deep. As you can see, it is suitable for children.

Scout Beach: The secluded
On the map: In Kapparis, at the height of the greenhouses, go right to the sea, until you see the wooden constructions of the Scouts. Be careful, since the dirt road before the beach is very uneven.
Beach: Although there is fine gravel, the addition of sand has greatly improved the situation. Also, umbrellas were placed by the Municipality, making it now an organized beach.
Strong points: One of the most beautiful beaches in the area, without crowds and with crystal clear waters for snorkeling.

Agia Triada Fisheries Shelter: Sports
On the map: Right next to the small port, a very nice beach has been built. From the roundabout between Paralimni and Protaras, you go to Agia Triada and continue straight to the sea.
Beach: They added sand (without gravel), installed some 70 umbrellas and double sunbeds, while there is also a lifeguard.
Strong points: The stadium is all money. Not for beach volleyball, but for beach soccer. On weekends, the derbies will follow one another.


Melissi: The trendy
On the map: But what to say, it's under the renovated Melissi Hotel. From there you will go left.
Beach: Things are organized and with a lot of people, but the good beach fits us all.
Strong points: Exotic, vast beach, both in length and width, with off-white sand!

Little Macronissos: The cool
On the map: Leaving Ayia Napa, from Nissi Avenue, you will turn left after the "Waterworld waterpark".
Beach: Things are very organized here, so don't worry about anything.
Strong points: Looks like blue lagoon, what else do you want? Exotic beach inside!

Nissi Beach: The famous
On the map: When you enter Ayia Napa, turn right and in front of you you will see the Nissi Beach.
Beach: Organized things and you just have it. It is the most photographed beach on the island.
Strong points: It may be the most famous beach but bad lies are a doll.

Sandy Bay Beach: The children's
On the map: Leaving Nissi Beach in the direction of the center of Ayia Napa, at 500-1000 meters you will see the Pavlonapa beach hotel. Sandy Bay Beach is right there.
Beach: Organized beach of infinite beauty with fine, white sand and shallow waters. Especially popular for families with young children, as it is a quiet spot with a lifeguard.
Strong points: Water sports are offered, from jet skiing to parachuting. In addition, the rocky promontory on both sides of the bay attracts many lovers of the underwater world, for underwater fishing or diving.

Sand of Kambouris: The rocky
On the map: Leaving Ayia Napa to Protaras (shortly after Grecian Bay), do not climb the parallel road. Continue straight on to Amante, until you find a small sign on the right that says "Sand of Kambouris".
Beach: Quiet place with white sand, but rocky in several places. You go more for sunbathing and for relaxation, since if you are a guy who loves swimming and longboats, you will be a little disappointed.
Strong points: Beautiful spot for those who want something alternative, with an almost lunar landscape.
