Katsarka Beach – Blue Flag

A rocky beach by the picturesque harbour.

Located 1 km west of the centre of the popular resort of Agia Napa, the 250-metre long beach of Katsarka is a rocky beach, covered in fine gravel with limited sandy parts and crystal-clear seawaters that are relatively calm.

Facilities on the beach include toilets, changing rooms, sun beds, umbrellas and water sports facilities, whilst there is a variety of restaurants, kiosks and accommodation in the general area.

Lifeguards with lifesaving equipment and first aid services are stationed at the beach in April, May, September and October, from 09:00 – 17:00, and in June, July and August, from 10:00 – 18:00.

The beach is located just 500 metres from the picturesque Agia Napa fishing harbour, at which point a pedestrian path links the harbour to the beach of Vathia Gonia.

Access is easy by foot, bike or car, and there are car-parking facilities.
