Governor’s Beach offers the perfect balance of a beautiful natural setting and mild human intervention. Dark grey sand with graceful white chalk rocks protruding into the navy blue sea are complemented with sunbeds,umbrellas and nearby amenities, making your visit here both relaxing and comfortable. The coastline is divided into several organised beaches and small sandy coves, seperated by the natural sedimentary white rocks. The eastern section of the beach welcomes you with a lovely green setting and a children’s playground leading to one of the most scenic cafes in Cyprus overlooking the Mediterranean sea.The beach itself is located below the chalk cliffs and can be easily accessed using one of the several ramps or steps which can be found near the cafe. Heading west, you will find another organised beach in a truly magical setting, under beautiful eucalyptus trees.
The Blue Flag beach has a nice sandy shore and in combination with the usually calm sea is ideal for kids to enjoy. Nevertheless, care should be taken around the protruding rocks and specifically diving into the shallow waters should be avoided. Couples will particularly enjoy the intimate sandy coves, peaceful atmosphere and romantic walks along the sea shore. Facilities such as showers (at a small fee), toilets and changing rooms can be found at the restaurants above the beach. A camping site is also located just above the beach. It is worth spending a full day at Governor’s beach, where apart from the sea, visitors can enjoy a good meal at one of the several restaurants, offering Cypriot cuisine and delicious fresh fish dishes.
Beach Directions and Access
Governor’s Beach is well sign-posted on the highway and lies about 10km East from the main hotel area in Limassol. After taking the exit from the highway, follow the signs until you reach a T-junction with signs for “Kalymnos” in the left direction. After about 300m you can find the camping site and thereafter the parking lot for the beach. For people with disabilities, it is best to continue driving past the parking lot and follow the dirt road wich leads straight to the sea-shore.
