Swim in the cleanest crystal clear waters in the Med...
Cyprus has the Cleanest Waters in the EU!
With more than 120 miles of powdery white sands, drenched in over 300 days a year of sunshine and luxury beachfront accommodation, you’d be forgiven for thinking you were reading about some far-away tropical destination. Now with Cyprus having been awarded the cleanest waters in Europe, paradise on earth is much closer than you might think...
Cyprus is home to some of the finest hotels, perfect beaches and cleanest waters to be found along the coastline of the Mediterranean Sea. So impeccable is the quality of these crystal clear waters, Cyprus has been declared the top country in Europe for bathing water cleanliness, with an outstanding 99.1% cleanliness score by the EEA report published in 2020. No wonder then that the loggerhead and green turtles choose the sandy expanses of Golden Beach and the equally impressive Alagadi Beach, on which to nest. Once hatched, the baby turtles find their feet and head for the azure seas that gently lap at these shores.
The beaches of Cyprus are as stunning as the aqua seas they adorn, from the uninterrupted stretches of sand, to pebble edged enclaves and dramatic sheer cliffs. Whether you wish to simply lay back, relax and enjoy the touch of the sun on your skin, or fancy being slightly more adventurous and explore the secluded coves, the options are right here… literally at your feet.
The coastline of Cyprus houses an impressive choice of desirable beach front resorts. A particularly impressive jewel in the crown of the Mediterranean and of North Cyprus is the 5* Acapulco Beach & Spa Resort with it's 1km long sandy beach.
Situated in verdant gardens, guests at the Acapulco Spa Resort have a choice of either hotel room based accommodation or swish studio style apartments. The vast range of amenities available, cater for every age and individual whim. If it’s a spot of pampering you’re craving, then the decadent ‘Ocean Spa’ with its Far East massages, saunas and full body care treatments will be sure to hit the spot. However, if something to get the adrenaline racing is desired, then the Aqua Park comprised of the hotel’s 3 outdoor pools is just a splash away.
As the sun sets over its 1km long private bay, an al-fresco dining experience awaits in the hotel’s beach front restaurant. The culinary quality is second to none, with the very best in Cypriot fare that this enchanting part of the country has to offer.
Another fantastic resort, located to the of Famagusta, is the 3* Long Beach Resort, providing comfortable individual bungalows and villas. Much of the accommodation is situated so close to the water’s edge, guests can open their front door and step straight onto the long stretch of soft golden sand. The beach is perfect for children, as it is stone-free and the sea is fairly shallow and great for paddling, before dropping off further out, making it ideal for snorkelling.
The resort also offers the opportunity of discovering the nearby pristine sandy beaches of Famagusta, with their long stretches of golden sands and clear blue water. When it comes to dining at Long Beach Resort, the mouth-watering variety of delights on offer will appeal to the whole family. From spiced meats and freshly caught fish, to the plethora of cheeses, breads, exotic fruit and vegetables, every taste is catered for. Just one question remains… Which resort to visit first..
