Zapalo Beach

Zapalo Beach is hidden in Epiksopi Village in Limassol. It is a wild and hidden bay also called Tripitis. More specifically it is found after the Curium Archaelogical sites and the Temple of Apollon Hylates towards Paphos. Here you can experience astonishing sunsets, you can swim in clean waters or you can fish at the small fishing port. Bird watchers also visit the beach quite often.
