Limnara (Kermia) Beach – Blue Flag

Beach with access to the beautiful Cape Gkreko National Forest Park.

Located 2 km from the centre of the popular resort of Agia Napa, within the Cape Gkreko National Forest Park, the 350-metre long beach of Limnara (Kermia) is a beautiful coastal stretch that is mostly positioned in front of a hotel complex.

The beach has fine, golden sands and calm, crystal-clear seawaters, with rock pools at the edge of the bay.

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

Located near the stunning sea caves of Cape Gkreko, the beach offers access to all that the National Forest Park – which is on the Natura 2000 network of European protected sites – offers, including hiking and diving.

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