EXCURSIONS / Beach / Larnaca / Phinikoudes Beach
Bordering Larnaka’s (Larnaca) central coastal promenade, Phinikoudes Beach is one of the most famous in Cyprus. “Phinikoudes” means small palm trees (now grown into very big palm trees) that were planted in 1922.

The beach has fine grey sand and is some 500 metres long. The width varies from 30 metres to 100 metres. The area is popular for its cafes, bars, restaurants and hotels. There are also a large number of mini markets close to the beach. The commercial and shopping centre of the town is just behind the promenade. The main road, Athenon Avenue, is planted with palm trees, green areas and colourful flowers that add to the magnificent scenery.


The beach has several services and facilities such as toilets, showers, changing rooms, access for the disabled, sun beds and umbrellas and water sports. Lifeguards are on duty with lifesaving equipment during the bathing season.

There is easy and safe access to the beach by bus and car or on foot. Many car parks are found near the beach.

The sea is clean and the water quality in line with standards set by the European Union’s Bathing Water Directive. The sea is usually calm and the waves mild. The area is the venue for the two-week Larnaka (Larnaca) Kataklysmos Fair, usually in June, during which the Blue Flag is withdrawn.
