A beautiful beach with an ancient history.
Located in the greater Lemesos (Limassol) area of Episkopi Bay, Kourion beach is a 1 km long coast that is particularly striking with its natural palette of colours, and a regal and ancient history.
Its designated swimming area has an exceptionally wide shore, comprised of sand and pebbles. The seawaters are crystal-clear and varying shades of blue that beautifully contrast with the surrounding white hills. Windsurfing can also be enjoyed here.
Facilities on the beach include toilets, showers, changing rooms, sun beds, umbrellas and several fish taverns. Within a short distance (about 1 km) there are convenience stores, a children’s playground and accommodation.
Lifeguards with lifesaving equipment and first aid services are stationed at the beach from April – October, 09:00 – 17:00, and until 18:00 during the summer season.
One of the island’s most famous archaeological sites – that of ancient Kourion – is close by and well worth a visit, especially for its magnificent Greco-Roman amphitheatre where cultural events are still held to this day.
Access is easy by foot, bus, bike or car, with car-parking facilities available.
The beach also offers disabled access.
