The Governor's Beach (Greek: Ακτή του Κυβερνήτη) is located partly in the Larnaca and in the Limassol region. It is a 2 km shoreline, with sandy beaches, deep crystal waters and a blue flag waving. The area is unknown to most locals and tourists.[1] Because of the structure of the shoreline, consisting of well-hidden small coves, it is one of the few semi-official[2] nudist beach spots in Cyprus.

Name Origin[edit]

The name Governor's Beach derives from a former British governor.[3]


The beach is about 40 km west of Larnaca and 30 km east of Limassol and well beyond the city tourist strip, but it is still popular enough to get a daily bus service. The beach lies down some steps well off the main Nicosia/Limasol highway at the bottom of white cliffs, which are in sharp contrast to the dark sand below that gets very hot in high summer.
