Beaches & Seacoast Famagusta Landa Beach - Blue Flag

Landa Beach – Blue Flag

A long stretch that links popular beaches.

Located 4 km west of the centre of the popular tourist resort of Agia Napa, the 400-metre long beach of Landa is situated halfway between the beaches of Nissi Bay and Makronisos.

The large sandy beach has a natural bay and is covered in fine, golden sands, with crystal-clear and calm seawaters. Its name means ‘pond’ in the local dialect.

Facilities on the beach include toilets, changing rooms, sun beds, umbrellas and water sports facilities. The general area has a variety of accommodation, restaurants and kiosks nearby.

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 also offers disabled access, including a special wheelchair at the lifeguard tower to help disabled persons enter the sea with assistance from the lifeguards

A pedestrian path runs along the coast and links the nearby Vathia Gonia beach with Makronisos beach, where the interesting archaeological site of Makronissos Tombs can be easily accessed. There is also a picnic site in the area.

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