White sandy beaches in Cyprus

White Beach Cyprus

It’s no surprise that people come to Cyprus not only to see the many attractions and enjoy the Mediterranean landscape and cuisine but also to soak up the beaches.

A massive volcanic eruption formed this island which is why its beaches of Cyprus are covered with dark volcanic sand and pebbles for the most part, but among this are real gems – fragments of coastline with crystal clear turquoise water and white sand. If you’re coming to Cyprus to swim and sunbathe you will not find a better place than a white beach framed by green.

All the beaches listed in this article have carried the Blue Flag for several years, a European distinction awarded for clean water and spotless, well-equipped beaches.

Tourists may be pleasantly surprised to learn that access to any beach in Cyprus is free. According to the laws of Cyprus the coastline, being seven meters wide, belongs to the people, and therefore nobody has the right to close off access to the sea, even if the beach is adjacent to an elegant five-star hotel.
