BTW, isolated beaches can be very dangerous if you plan to swim, because obviously there are no lifeguards.
So be careful, especially around Paphos district. :wink:

Guess it depends on what you think makes a good beach. Personal pref is for isolated beaches with ozone filled air, near empty beaches without developments, without sun-beds from one end to the other, beaches that are protected against these sorts of developments, beaches where there's no car-parking nearby so you have to trek and climb down cliffs to get to them... and CY is sadly very, very lacking in these idyllic beaches.


You can find that sort of beaches in third world countries like Greece & Turkey. :lol:


Watch it reh Toffoui! ... :evil:

You'll also find them in the US, in OZ, SA and here in GB... Know cos have a passion for the GB coast... and search them out with large scale maps and keep notes of the best, quietest, to die for beaches... cos am an aspiring beach bum... :D

You will find many deserted beaches in GB, mainly because most sane people find them too cold to bother with! :wink:

Not warm enough if you ask me! Do the British seas ever get above 20C?

No, a general max temp would be about 15 degrees C ... but there are localities where it'll approach nearer 20 by late Summer.... and believe you me, 20 is enough for this sort of Englishman to have thought on many, many occasions ... Gosh, this water is quite warm, surprisingly warm.
