Discover Beaches & Seacoast Cyprus' Blue Flag beaches

Cyprus’ Blue Flag beaches

Cyprus has a wealth of beaches to choose from – from the quiet backwaters in the west, to the lively resorts in the east, the island has something for everyone.

A number of the island’s beaches have been awarded the Blue Flag, an exclusive eco-label awarded to beaches with high water quality, environmental education and information, environmental management, safety and other services. A symbol of environmental quality, it serves as an incentive for local authorities and the private sector to focus on quality.
