Paphos Blue Flag Beaches

Published 3rd of August, 2019

Paphos doesn't have much of a reputation for the seaside, but there are in fact 17 Blue Flag Beaches in the region. We've put them all in an easy-to-use directory, and we present them here for your delectation, so you can see for yourselves that Paphos Beaches are in fact, not shabby at all.

We Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside


We will begin our tour of the Paphos Blue Flag Beaches in Geroskipou. Before we start, I will give you a link to the directory. In it you can see all the beaches, plus maps, photos and virtual tours. What you might not see is some familiar beach names. For instance "Riccos Beach" doesn't appear. This is because the names we used in the directory and in this blog are the official names taken from the Blue Flag Website. I am not telling you which name you should use. I am just mentioning this to explain why we have used the names we have used.

Laiki Paralia Beach


Also, some beaches are split in two. For instance, the main Geroskipou Beach consists of this one and the next one. So if you are not sure what beach I am talking about, use the links I will provide for each one and view the map on the directory.

Towards Paphos


Anyway, Laiki Paralia Beach has been renovated recently. They have built a new cafe and toilets, and the area is nice and clean. As you can see, there is plenty of sand here.

Geroskipou Beach


Walk a couple of hundred metres down the beach from Laiki Paralia, past Riccos Bar, with its swanky new toilets, and you will arrive at Geroskipou Beach. Both these beaches, and all other Blue Flag beaches have life guards.

Rip tides are a big problem in Paphos. People die as a result of getting caught in them every year. So it is important you pay attention to any warning signs. All the Blue Flag beaches have life guards. Paphos is also building artificial reefs to alleviate the problem.

However, if you do go off piste and swim on your own, getting caught in a rip-tide isn't a problem provided you know what to do. In a nutshell, you shouldn't fight against it. You should swim parallel to the shore until you are out of the riptide. There is more information here. Read that if you don't know much about rip tides. It might save your life!
