Facilities Service with a smile The award of the Blue Flag forms the basis for the facilities offered at Makronissos Beach. First and foremost the health and safety of the beaches visitors is of paramount importance. Feel safe knowing that the beach has a lifeguard tower that is fully manned during all the summer season (April-November) from 9am – 6pm every day including weekends. There is a clearly marked out swimming area and boat channel as to preserve and assure your safety in the water. As the water is almost always calm due to the cape found at the beach there are hardly any waves even under strong wind conditions, a special characteristic that can rarely be found on the Southern coast of Cyprus. You can of course swim beyond the cape although you may face some larger waves and will no longer be within the designated swimming area. The beach offers sun beds and umbrellas for everyone at a very reasonable price. An area at the front of the beach is also allocated for people not wanting to hire these facilities. Toilets and dressing rooms are available to the public at no additional cost. Food and refreshments can be found at various places in close vicinity to the beach. Ayia Napa municipality has also constructed a couple of Beach Volley Ball courts open for use to the general public. These are just some of the facilities that exist at Makronissos Beach. The beach is here to make your daytime activities as enjoyable as possible while having fun in the sun.
