Vathia Gonia Beach – Blue Flag

Coast of calm seawaters with a lack of winds.

Located 2.2km west of the centre of the popular resort of Agia Napa, the 300-metre long beach of Vathia Gonia is a beautiful coastal stretch that is located 400 metres east of the more crowded Nissi Bay.

As a sandy beach with a natural rocky bay, it is covered in fine, golden sands, and its crystal-clear seawaters are relatively calm. There is a complete lack of headwinds at the beach.

Facilities on the beach include toilets, changing rooms, sun beds, umbrellas and water sports facilities, whilst there is accommodation and a variety of restaurants located close by. An innovative system (Seatrac) that offers autonomous full access to the sea for the disabled, is installed on the beach.

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 coast is separated by a pedestrian path, which links the beach to Agia Napa’s picturesque harbour in one direction, and Makronisos beach in the other, where the Makronissos Tombs (archaeological site) can be found.

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