A picturesque cluster of bays.
Located 5 km from the centre of the popular tourist resort of Agia Napa, the 350-metre long beach of Makronisos is actually a picturesque cluster of three bays, stretching from the well-sheltered Makronisos Beach.
With fine, golden sands and relatively calm, crystal clear seawaters, the small bays extend in different directions; out to the west, the southwest and the southeast. The southwestern part is within a special protected area of the Natura 2000 network.
Facilities on the beach include toilets, changing rooms, sun beds, umbrellas and water sports facilities, whilst there is a convenience store located close by. The general area also has a variety of restaurants and kiosks.
Lifeguards with lifesaving equipment and first aid services are stationed at the beach in April, May, September and October, and in June, July and August.
The interesting archaeological site of Makronissos Tombs can be found in the area of the beach, or you can take a stroll eastwards to the beach of Vathia Gonia, or westwards to the beach of Agia Thekla.
Access is easy by foot, bike or car, and there are car-parking facilities.
