The stunning island of Cyprus is located in the eastern Mediterranean and is famous for its incredible beaches and as the perfect holiday getaway. Blessed with not only white sands and blue seas, the island is usually also lucky enough to sustain blue skies and glorious sunshine throughout the summer months, and even into fall.
Fall weather in Cyprus is ideal, particularly at the beginning of the season when it isn’t too hot or too cold, it’s the perfect time of year for spending the day relaxing on the beach or looking around one of the island’s small villages. Fall is usually warm and sunny, and the sea remains warm from the summer months, warm enough for swimming.
Whether you are traveling in summer or fall, these five best beach getaways in Cyprus have to be on your list. Enjoy a beach getaway in Cyprus at one of these spectacular shorelines:
The over a mile-long bay of sand and shingle known as Pissouri Bay is found on the south coast of the island, and is great for watersports and chilling out. The beach has mostly avoided over-development and is generally a laid-back locals beach. Enjoy the sand and sea through the day, and enjoy one of the Cypriot tavernas just off the beach for a traditional Cypriot lunch or dinner. There are also plenty of local bars and restaurants to enjoy, you may even get to sample some locally made wine and grapes.
If you love a white sandy beach, then Nissi Beach is the beach for you. The beautifully turquoise waters are great for swimming or for the more adventurous you can swim out to a rocky island and spend your afternoons jumping off rocks into the clear sea. Like most of Cyprus’ beaches, the area has a great selection of bars and restaurants to enjoy, even in the daytime.
Famous for its solitary fig tree, Fig Tree Bay is the perfect family beach. With golden sands, safe waters and plenty of parasols for shade. One of the most popular beach resorts on the island, the area has become a little developed in recent years, with apartments and hotels close to the beach, and can get very busy in the summer.
Found on the Akamas peninsula, Lara Bay is a stunning golden beach on a rugged rocky landscape, and a breeding beach for green turtles to breed and lay their eggs. The only difficult thing about this beach is that you need a beach-ready car, like a 4×4, to access it. This does mean, however, that the beach is pretty secluded and a great place to escape the tourists.
A locals favorite, Serena Bay is hidden away in Protaras off the main road. Despite being a smaller stretch of beach compared to some of the other beach locations, Serena Bay feels like you have discovered something truly special. And if you travel to the bay at the start of fall you may well have the beach to yourself. Be sure to enjoy a nice lunch at Serena Bay Beach Bar under the beach’s leafy trees.
