Sandy Beach in Lemba is now Blue Flag!

Published 14th of July, 2021

Sandy Beach in Lemba has long been a locals' favourite. It is likely to get a bit busier in future because it was recently awarded Blue Flag status. So we went down to prepare a new entry for our Beaches directory. Come and see what the fuss is about.

Meet Sandy Beach

As you can see from this picture, the beach is most definitely sandy. The coveted blue flag can be seen to the right of the beach cafe. If you are unsure where the beach is, check out its page in our Beach Directory.

Carpark View

Let's begin our walkaround at the car park. If this is full, there is an overflow car park back towards the main road, so use that rather than block somebody in. There used to be a bridge to the left of this location, spanning the river that runs alongside. However, it had to be removed as it had been illegally built, and was preventing eels from spawning, if memory serves me correctly.

Pay Attention!

The seas around Paphos are notoriously dangerous. In the past, many lives - both tourist and locals alike - have been lost to freak currents. Indeed, a number of beaches have had artificial reefs constructed, to make them more safe. Sandy Beach does not have one of these, so it is vital that you heed the warnings on these signs. Make sure there is a lifeguard present before you take a dip.

Beware Rip Tides

These signs tell you what to do if you get caught in a rip tide. Basically, don't try to swim against it. Swim parallel to the shore until you escape the tide, and then head back in.

One of our forum regulars lost somebody very dear to them at this beach, many years ago. So don't take the warnings lightly.
