Makronisos Beach – Blue Flag

By April 10, 2018 No Comments

A picturesque cluster of bays.

Located 5 km from the centre of the popular tourist resort of Agia Napa, the 350-metre long beach of Makronisos is actually a picturesque cluster of three bays, stretching from the well-sheltered Makronisos Beach.

With fine, golden sands and relatively calm, crystal clear seawaters, the small bays extend in different directions; out to the west, the southwest and the southeast. The southwestern part is within a special protected area of the Natura 2000 network.

Facilities on the beach include toilets, changing rooms, sun beds, umbrellas and water sports facilities, whilst there is a convenience store located close by. The general area also has a variety of restaurants and kiosks.

Lifeguards with lifesaving equipment and first aid services are stationed at the beach in April, May, September and October, from 09:00 – 17:00, and in June, July and August, from 10:00 – 18:00.

The interesting archaeological site of Makronissos Tombs can be found in the area of the beach, or you can take a stroll eastwards to the beach of Vathia Gonia, or westwards to the beach of Agia Thekla.

Access is easy by foot, bike or car, and there are car-parking facilities.
