Pomos in Cyprus

Our top 5 secret beaches


Few words

If your image of Cyprus in high season is one of scorched, drunken tourists clogging the beaches, you’re going to the wrong places. Cities such as Paphos, Ayia Napa, Limassol or Larnaca do get pretty crowded in summer, but if you rent a car in Cyprus and explore, you’ll discover some heavenly golden beaches that have been virtually untouched. Here are some of our favourites, but don’t tell anybody else.
Episkopi Bay

Zapalo Beach

Located right under the Sanctuary of Apollo Hylates, Zapalo Bay is propably the most spectacular beach in the Limassol District. It is a large bay which combines steep cliffs, fine brown sand, white rocks and crystal-clear deep-blue waters.

Pachyammos Beach

In the past tradition said that ships arrived in the area and made burglaries. In this cave there was the famous Dragon who protected the area from all the evil things that happened then. It is a rocky cave, with an opening to the sea some kilometers further from the port, to the cape. The cave has lots of depth and sweet water comes from there.

Alaminos beach lies along the Larnaka-Kiti stretch of coast. Virtually hidden from plain sight it is a veritable ‘Secret Paradise’, in actual fact this is indeed what it is called. It is almost hidden from common view and it is truly a secret paradise.
