Swimming and Water Sports
Lady’s mile Beach
One of the longest beaches in Cyprus, that boasts dark grey sands and crystal-clear seawaters. Parts of the beach are organised with facilities that include toilets, showers, sunbeds, and umbrellas, while other parts are left more pristine, and are suitable for visitors who prefer more privacy and quietness. The waters are shallow and are suitable for families with small kids. The beach is very popular during summer months, lifeguards are present at the beach from April to October. When there are strong winds on that side of the peninsula, the beach is also suitable for wind surfing. The beach is also important for turtle nesting and therefore all the visitors should respect the area and avoid activities (e.g. camping, littering) that might impact turtle hatchlings.
Kadjimuttala Beach (Turtle/Sand dunes Beach)
This beach is on the Southwest of the Salt Lake, and access to the beach is via a dirt road. The point starting from St. George’s chapel is more accessible. The beach is a popular destination for kite surfers and surfers, as waves are frequently quite high, but on days when the sea is calm and the seabed is clear, the experience of diving at the Akrotiri shipwreck is truly unique. The beach is also important for turtle nesting and therefore all the visitors should respect the area and avoid activities (e.g. camping, littering) that might impact turtle hatchlings.
The beach is made of both sand and pebbles, the seawaters are crystal-clear and the beach has been awarded with a Blue Flag. The west side of the beach is chosen by wind surfers and sometimes kite surfers, due to the strong winds of the area. It is an organised bathing beach with facilities, such as toilets, showers, sunbeds and umbrellas. There are also lifeguards from April to October.
