Best Beaches on west side of Island

by Jo

We're thinking of coming to Cyprus in the middle of May for a couple of weeks and will probably be staying in the Coral Bay area. We have a 4 year old whose idea of fun is going to the beach, building sand castles and splashing in the sea.

We are looking for beautiful beaches with soft sand and shallow waters which aren't too much of a trek as our little lad is great at walking down to the beach, but not so great walking back after a full day playing at the beach. So far the only beach we've seen that seems to fulfill our criteria is Coral Bay and we were wondering if anyone had any other suggestions please.

Sandy beaches near Paphos
by: Helen (website owner)

Coral bay beach is one of the best choices if you are looking for sand rather than shingle. You also have Corallia beach close to Coral bay.

My favourite sandy beach near Paphos and also Coral bay is Lara on the Akamas peninsula, (see picture here on my best beaches page) but it does involve a 25-30 minute drive onto the Akamas and there is a 100m walk down to the beach which may not suit your son. he can however learn all about the turtles at the turtle hut there!

Why not combine a half day at Lara with a visit on the way back to the famous Last Castle Viklari tavern for fabulous BBQ food with a view of the Akamas to die for! It will leave you with many memories :)
