Beaches & Seacoast Famagusta Pantachou Beach - Blue Flag

Pantachou Beach – Blue Flag

Agia Napa’s longest beach.

Located east of the harbour of the popular tourist resort, Agia Napa, the 1,2 km long beach of Pantachou is the longest coastal strip in the region, starting from the harbour and stretching all the way to the beach of Glyki Nero.

The long, natural bay is covered in fine, golden sands and its crystal-clear seawaters are relatively calm.

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.

Aside from the opportunity to enjoy a boat trip from the harbour – or simply a stroll to see the pretty, bobbing boats – the beach also links to some of the main attractions of the area, including the Thalassa Agia Napa Municipal Museum (with a sea theme), the Medieval monastery, and the old aqueduct.

Lifeguards with lifesaving equipment and first aid services are stationed at the beach from April – October.

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