Nissi Bay Beach – Blue Flag

A landmark bay with a natural sand lane.

Located 3.5 km west from the centre of the popular tourist resort of Agia Napa, the 300-metre long beach of Nissi Bay is famous for its small islet and its sand lane – a natural phenomenon that is a landmark in the region.

Comprised of coast and rocky formation on its central and western part, the beach has fine, golden sands and calm, crystal-clear seawaters that are sheltered against winds. It is considered among the most beautiful beaches on the island, thanks to the famous islet located a short distance from the coastline, whilst the beach of Makronisos is easily accessible, along with its archaeological site of the Makronissos Tombs.

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

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