One of the prettiest beaches in Cyprus, with beautiful turquoise waters and golden sand. A nice spot for having a relaxing swim or simply idling on a sea bed. Much less crowded than Nissi beach, beach bars close by (a bit pricey, though). Sea beds...More

This beach is good, depends which little bay of makronissos you go to, some are rocky, some are dirty. It's good but there are nicer beaches. Currently developing a marina at one end so it was a little noisy but we still enjoyed it.
