Coral Bay administration to Leptos Hotels

Peyia municipality and Leptos Calypso Hotels Ltd appear to have reached an agreement on the rental and operation of the two kiosks at Coral Bay beach. It is expected that their management will be directly assigned to the company for a period of 10 years. The provision of sunbeds and umbrellas is still assigned to the Municipality of Peyia.

The relevant proposition will be discussed today at the municipal council. The proposition will include a provision for equipping the kiosks with two entrances, in order to abide by the law. After the 10-year period ends, the operation of the kiosks will be taken over by the municipality.

Access to the beach was previously possible only through land belonging to Kykkos monastery and leased to Leptos Hotels for 99 years. A bitter legal dispute between Leptos Ltd and the municipality began in 2016 when, according to the mayor, the company had prevented unhindered access to the beach, as well as the use of the kiosks by the municipality, in its attempt to impose its own requirements for the use of space.
