Honeymooning in Cyprus? Here are 10 of the top beaches that are a must for your itinerary

When honeymooning on the sun-drenched island of Cyprus, spending time on its many beautiful beaches is essential. Golden sands and sapphire waters are in abundance on this Mediterranean island and what's more, Cyprus can be the perfect place for a honeymoon whatever the time of year. 

If you're a couple who desire complete and utter relaxation or you're a pair of adrenaline junkies who crave the thrill and challenge of a new water sport, Cyprus is the perfect place for a beach break. Here, the Cyprus Tourism Organisation (CTO) reveals some of the 64 best Blue Flag beaches the island has to offer. 

1. Fig Tree Bay, Ammochostos

In the tourist resort of Protaras, in the town of Paralimni, you will find Fig Tree Bay, with its fine golden sand and glistening waters. It takes its name from a single, solitary fig tree that has been there since the 17th century. With water sports available from the beach and the general area being close to a variety of restaurants, Fig Tree Bay is a must visit.

2. Konnos Beach, Ammochostos

3. Pissouri Beach, Limassol

Just 30km west of Limassol lies the fine, golden sand and clean waters of Pissouri Bay in Pissouri Village. With calm swimming waters, the beach is soaring in popularity thanks to its spectacular surroundings and natural beauty but also offers a more secluded setting. Visitors can also utilise a vast range of facilities, from showers and sun beds to water sports and a beach volleyball court, before exploring the traditional charm of Pissouri Village.

4. Makenzi Beach, Larnaka

With flat sand, shallow waters, and vast water activities (both above and below the surface), locals and tourists alike love Makenzi Beach. Underneath the Cyprus sunshine, children can spend their days drawing in the sand and building castles, while the rest of the family lounges on the beach or jumps on a jet-ski. For those who love to be in the water, the beach's sheltered position allows you to walk in the sea for almost 50 metres.

5. Nissi Beach, Ayia Napa

One of the most famous in the region, Nissi Beach attracts the crowds for its alluring combination of beautiful coast, bars and sundowners. Formed inside a natural bay, Nissi boasts shallow and calm seawaters which shelter you from the wind. While many Cyprus beaches are suited to families, Nissi Beach can be preferential for couples who favour a more dynamic atmosphere.

Deep golden sand and shallow seawaters await you at Coral Bay Beach. Located in Paphos, the 500-metre long coast is enclosed by a pair of limestone headlands as well as abundant greenery. A popular lounging spot for families with children, the area has a variety of restaurants, fish taverns, cafés, bars, kiosks and accommodation.

Glyki Nero is a 250-metre long beach that stretches right to the Ayia Napa Sea Caves, as well as the picturesque nearby harbour.

Located in the centre of the popular resort town of Ayia Napa, the beach is both convenient and aesthetically pleasing.

Foinikoudes Beach is next to Larnaca’s most famous palm-tree lined promenade. The 600-metre coast combines entertainment and culture and the beach is flanked by the marina with its pier and fishing harbour on the one end and a Medieval Fort at the other. The beach is the gateway to many organised fishing trips, mini cruises and diving, as well as a base for adrenaline-fuelled water sports.

9. Aphrodite Beach, Limassol

Embark on a coastal footpath lined with acacias, eucalyptus trees and oleanders, and you will discover the quiet and relaxing long, sandy shore of Aphrodite Beach. Located in the famous coastal resort of Agios Tychonas in Limassol, its waters are immaculately clean and sands are perfectly shaded.

10. Pantachou, Ammochostos

Pantachou Beach is the longest coastal strip in the Ammochostos region, starting from the harbour and stretching all the way to Glyki Nero beach. Along with quaint strolls and relaxing sunbathing, the beach also links to some of the main attractions of the area, including the Thalassa Agia Napa Municipal Museum (with a sea theme), the medieval monastery, and the old aqueduct. It is one of the best beaches for those looking to relax and learn about the local area.
