A beach of contrasting dark sands and white rock.
Located by Pentakomo village, about 10 km east of the main hotel district of Lemesos (Limassol), the famous Governor’s Beach is one of the most popular coastal areas of the island, and is characterized by chalk white rocks that extend into the deep blue sea.
Comprised of two parts (Governor’s and Kalymnos), the first section of Governor’s beach has dark grey sands and uneven surfaces, whereas the second section (Kalymnos) – which lies around 200 m west of Governor’s beach – is replaced by flat ground and a long, narrow stretch of sandy coastline. Both boast calm, clean seawaters and provide a fantastic setting for walking amidst nature, as such they are popular with all, including families with small children.
Facilities on the beach include toilets, showers, changing rooms, sun beds, umbrellas, a children’s playground, beach cafes and a nearby camping site (Kalymnos). There are also several traditional restaurants, known for their fresh fish.
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.
Access is easy by car via the A1 motorway, and the area has car-parking facilities available. The beach also offers disabled access.
