Vrysoudia A Beach – Blue Flag

Pafos’ (Paphos’) main, organised coast.

Located in the heart of the tourist area of Kato Pafos – off of the main road of Poseidonos Avenue – the 300-metre long beach of Vrysoudia A is one of the main organised beaches of the area.

The sands are deep, golden and the clean seawaters here are calm and shallow, making it a popular choice for all, including families with children.

Facilities on the beach include toilets, showers, changing rooms, sun beds, umbrellas, dustbins, recycling bins and water sports. There are also a variety of restaurants, fish taverns, cafes, bars, kiosks, convenience stores and accommodation in the area.

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 from April 15 – October 31, 11:00 – 17:30.

The beach is a great starting point to explore some of the area’s most famous attractions, including the Medieval castle and its picturesque harbour, Pafos mosaics and the archaeological site of Tombs of the Kings.

Access is easy by foot, bike, bus or car, with car-parking available and a bus stop nearby.
