Great for swimming and safe for children.

Like almost everywhere in Cyprus, free parking and cheap sunbed and parasol hire. We enjoyed a really nice afternoon here, with good swimming. Nice and clean with facilities close by.

The best beach in Cyprus
Jun 2021 • Family
Kourion beach is our favorite beach in Cyprus. We have come here regularly over the last 10 years. The beach is mostly sandy, with only some small pebbles and you can enter the water without having to wear shoes to protect against the rocks (which is rare on the Cyprus beaches). The water is shallow, with often nice waves and a good place to swim or throw a ball around. The beach chairs and parasols are for rent and not expensive. The only negative is that the beach gets very crowded in the weekends.

Beware
Jul 2020 • Family
Visited this beach the other day and was very disappointed. They have now covered it in socially distanced chairs. You cannot sit anywhere near them in case you are too close. However when visiting the sunshine cafe for coffee a group arrived that was placed so close to us they were bumping our chairs as they moved. That is before many tourists arrive so I dread what it will be like if/when they do. We don’t plan on visiting again any time soon.

Don't go out of your way to visit
Jan 2020
As we went by bus to visit the Archaeological site (again) we thought that we would visit the beach which is visible from on high. We had seen cars come and go and so thought a visit must be worthwhile. However, once we walked down to it we discover that the beach was largely made up of pebbles with only some sandy areas.There are some cafe / restaurants with a pleasant view but truthfully not as interesting as many others on the coast. You can see very little of the site from below except that there are some ruins beneath the cliff on the other side of the road from the beach (which were not very well signposted ) and ignored by those just driving back and fore.

Beautiful beach, authentic Cyprus
Aug 2019
We often visit our family in Cyprus and a visit to Kourion Beach is always on the agenda. We eat at the Blue Beach restaurant/bar and then sunbathe and swim the afternoon away. When we bring new visitors to the island with us, we go to the Kourion City ruins on the hilltop. The views are magnificent, and the ruins are expansive. Over the years they have been improved with boardwalks, better explanations etc, but they can still improve on these. It costs $4 per adult, children are free. The site closes at 7pm.

Beautiful beach

It’s a must visit destination in Kourion Beach and Kourion archaeological site! And the best way to visit here is definitely a road trip from Limassol. I rent a car from EasyRentCars.com

Long sandy beach
Nov 2019 • Friends
Kourion beach is a long open beach with lots of sandy areas and some pebble beds. Much of the water is shallow and safe. Lifeguards are provided perfect for families, water sports and even horse riding. Windy conditions can adversely effect the water quality for swimming. Plenty of tavernas for refreshments. Easy access.

Nice and quiet beach
Oct 2019 • Solo
Went to this beach after my visit to Ancient Kourion.
Free parking directly at the beach, sunbeds and umbrellas available for only 2,50 €.
Expect some bigger waves.
You can choose between 3 beach bars - I went to the first one and was not disappointed. Good place for a quick lunch .

Don't think twice
Oct 2019
While visiting the Kourion Archaeological Site we were surprised to see from above this lovely beach in all its splendor and decided immediately to spend there the rest of the day. Not much need for further details, as it has Blue Flag classification, just a recommandation for one of the three restaurants on the beach, a classy one, where you can enjoy a tasty sea food meal: Chris Blue Beach.

Return after 23 years didn’t disappoint
Sep 2019 • Couples
Good to see that unlike so many areas of Cyprus this beach still maintains its old charm and Sunshine Taverna is still serving good quality food with the fresh fish a must if you get the chance to visit.
