Santa Barbara Beach – Blue Flag

A beach that offers snorkelling and ancient history.

Located at the famous coastal resort of Agios Tychonas in the Lemesos (Limassol) district, the beach of Santa Barbara is peaceful and chic.

Comprised of sand with some rocks, the clean seawaters are further enhanced by an artificial reef, with the ancient Amathounta port offering excellent opportunities for snorkelling. There is a scenic footpath that leads westwards, passing the ancient city and the port of Amathounta.

Facilities on the beach include toilets, showers, changing rooms, sun beds and umbrellas. There are a variety of accommodation, restaurants and kiosks in the general area.

Lifeguards with lifesaving equipment and first aid services are stationed at the beach from April – October, 09:00 – 17:00, and until 18:00 during the summer season.

Access is easy by foot, bike, bus or car with car-parking available.

The beach also offers disabled access.
