What is the first thing that crosses your mind when you hear the word “beach”?
Relaxation, sunbathing, exquisite pleasure – the list is endless.
Cyprus doesn’t just offer you several beaches to choose from, it makes your every dream come true by presenting you with the finest range of high-quality places with their unique history and breathtaking views which are fully able to leave you speechless.
There are more than 50 “blue flag” beaches which are divided into 3 categories:
The access to them is free. However, you’ll have to pay for the additional services. If it’s a city beach, basics like a sun lounger with an umbrella will cost you about 2-2.5 euros, for hotel beaches, the price is higher but so is the quality of the service. Besides, you can get yourself a loyalty card (they can cover either a month of your stay or the entire year). This will allow you to enjoy such luxury activities as swimming in the pool or visiting a gym, and you won’t have to worry about the payment every time.
City beaches are the most popular in the area. They’re mostly situated nearby hotels and apartments, which makes them very convenient.
Wild beaches – as the most exotic ones – offer you the joys of pure nature where you can be left alone with your own thoughts, away from noisy crowds and hectic lifestyle. If you appreciate having a quiet moment for yourself from time to time, this option should definitely be on the table.
The choice, though, doesn’t end in this particular place. You have to really know your preferences if you want to choose something that would suit your best. For instance, are you fond of traditional sand beaches with lovely creamy color which is highlighted by the dark waters? Or does your passion lie with pebble beaches which give you that perfect tangible feeling of authenticity? Or are you in need of something more impressive like black volcanic sand which is a bit grim-looking but makes quite a picture by competing with the deep blue of the restless sea?
That’s why it’s so important to study all the options closely and find out the most suitable one.
