Explore the small, peaceful beaches of Kissonerga

There are many small yet very beautiful beaches at Kissonerga. Some of them are too small and isolated to name, but if you just walk by the sea you will definitely find your spot to enjoy your swim and sun bathing in total privacy. In addition, there are at least three beaches in Kissonerga to visit.

Plaka beachPotima Bay beach

It is located under the village, near the Atlantica Beach hotel. Surrounded by rocks, the water where you swim is protected and almost always calm. There is a small sandy beach. If you stay in the village, it is a short walk, about 20 minutes, through wonderful green surroundings. Try this little beach at least once.

Pente Litharia beach

Another small beach, not very well known. The nearest place to this beach, easy to find, is the Queens Bay hotel. On the main road to Coral Bay, it is about where the Crazy Spoon restaurant is.

Potima Bay beach

This is the biggest and most well known beach of Kissonerga. It is next to the main road, half the way between Kissonerga and Coral Bay. This is a very long beach with small pebbles and areas of fine sand. There is an organized municipal beach, with free car parking and a beach bar, the Sea You beach bar which is very popular and a nice place for a refreshment or a snack. Potima Bay beach is not crowded, but if you wish more privacy, you will find a private area for your bath by just walking 100 - 200 meters from the organized beach.
