Nissi Beach, Ayia Napa

4.2
#1 of 266 in Outdoors in Cyprus
Get the party going at Nissi Beach, Cyprus's number one party spot. Stretching along 500 m (0.3 mi) of white sand seashore, the beach is considered one of the most exotic one on the island and it's been awarded the EU Blue Flag. The sea is shallow and crystal clear here, while the surrounding area is filled with palm trees and subtropical plants. You'll see a small islet just offshore, which you can access by foot, for a completely new view of Ayia Napa. Refrain, however, from joining the cliff jumpers at this spot.

  • This place is simply suitable for youngsters. The sea is not as clean as it used to be either. For youngsters and singles it's a perfect place to be!  more »
  • Wonderful beach! In my opinion one of the most wonderful beaches in Europe. Especially the little island is amazing (if it's low tight it's connected).  more »
  • Perhaps one of the best beaches of ayia napa, named the sea is nice but the beach is very crowded, there are a number of bars with live music and shiuma party, ideal for those who want to have fun, but if you love peace isn't ideal.

  • You won't find Nessie the lock monster here! Nice place to relax, swim and have fun. The only minor downside is the pay as you go showers 50cents for 30secs! It takes 10 secs to put your head under before your eyes water cuts out! Showers should be free!
  • Nissi beach has one of the most beautiful waters I have ever seen. It was clear and light blue. The sands were also beautiful and very soft. It was very lively at noon.
  • Very nice and cozy beach .. just relax and take one of these pineapple with pina colada :)
  • clear water and a party vibe but if you want to swim its not the place, the water is too shallow
  • Great beach ! With crystal blue color. Party atmosphere, music, foam parties, water games and bars are available. Usually crowded in the summer.
