There are many beautiful beaches in Cyprus, and many international tourists come here each year to enjoy the sun as well as the beaches. 

If it’s your first time in Cyprus, this guide will help you to make the most of your vacation!

Konnos Bay

One of the most famous beaches in Cyprus, and one that shouldn’t be missed. Konnos Bay is located in the Ayia Napa region, and it’s truly beautiful. 

It is popular both among locals and foreigners, and it tends to get very crowded during the summer season. It has a more relaxed vibe than Nissi Beach, but still plenty of things to do and just a short drive from Cape Greco.

Bay of Aphrodite

This is said to be the birthplace of Aphrodite! The goddess of love and beauty, so why not go here and take a dip in the ocean?

Makronissos beach

Another stunning Ayia Napa beach, located near to the world famous Nissi Beach. 

The white sand is very nice, and it comes with ideal conditions for a nice swim in the ocean. If you’re looking for an adrenaline rush, don’t worry, there are waterskiing and other watersports available as well as diving!

Fig Tree Bay

Another paradise, loved by international tourists. Fig Tree usually attracts an older crowd than nearby Ayia Napa, and while it is a bit calmer, there are still plenty of things to do in Fig Tree Bay, and the beach is absolutely stunning. 

Just look at that watercolor!

Golden Beach (Northern Cyprus)

This beach is situated in North Cyprus, and it’s one of the wilder beaches in Cyprus. If you travel to this part of the island, don’t forget to make a stop for a few hours at the Golden Beach!

Lara Bay

One of the hidden gems of Cyprus, located within the Akamas nature park reserve. The wilderness surrounding Lara Bay is truly stunning, and one of the best ways to get here is to rent a 4×4 vehicle. 

The Bay is also home to loggerhead turtles, who come here to lay their eggs during summertime.

Nissi Beach

Perhaps the most famous Cyprus beach, Nissi Beach is the pride of Ayia Napa and attracts visitors from all over the world. There are plenty of watersports available. During summertime, it is packed with people, especially a younger crowd.

If you want to enjoy this place without the crowds, you should go during shoulder season in April/May or September.

Cape Greco

One of the most beautiful places to visit in Cyprus. It is located next to Ayia Napa on the Greco Peninsula. This particular spot is known as the lover’s bridge or the bridge of love. 

The waters at Cape Greco is absolute magic and the turquoise color is made of dreams.

Finikoudes beach

This is the beach in Larnaca, and it’s probably one of the best city beaches in all of Europe. Finikoudes has been awarded with the blue flag status, and it’s one of the most popular places in the summertime. 

There’s a nice promenade that goes along Finikoudes as well.

Mackenzie Beach

A popular place to go among families and locals living in the Mackenzie area, in Larnaca. 

Behind the beach, there are plenty of restaurants and bars available. For those looking for a more adventurous day in the sun, there are also watersports available.

It is quite shallow as well, and you can walk out at least 50 meters and still only have water up to your waist.

Kourion Beach

Last but not least, we have Kourion Beach, which can be found in the Limassol district. 

Nearby, there are several historical sites of interest, such as the amphitheater. If you’re staying in Limassol, I recommend to come here for a lovely and relaxing day in the sun.
