Castella Beach, Agios Tychonas – Blue Flag

A narrow beach with trendy beach bars.

Located at the famous coastal resort of Agios Tychonas in the Lemesos (Limassol) district, the beach of Castella is a narrow, sandy and pebbly coast, set amidst the greenery of trees.

The beach and its clean waters are divided between the quieter sections, and those that centre around the popular beach bars, drawing in the younger crowds with beach parties and live DJs.

Facilities on the beach include toilets, showers, changing rooms, sun beds, umbrellas, beach bars and several restaurants along the coastline. There is also a coastal footpath that ends at Castella, having started at Parekklisia beach, 5 km away.

Lifeguards with lifesaving equipment and first aid services are stationed at the beach from April – November, 09:00 – 17:00, and until 18:00 during the summer season.

Access is easy by foot, bike, bus or car, with car-parking facilities available.

The beach also offers disabled access.
