pachyammos beach Cyprus
Pakyammos actually means "broad sands" and its a blue-flag beach. Although the beach is wave-battered and seaweed-littered, it's the only beach whilst swimming which has a unique view. In the sea you can see the whole village and its beautiful hills, UN troops and hear Church bells from the Ayios Raphael Church.
Apparently I was told by locals that turtles came and lay their eggs at night time.
