About six kilometres west of the coastal town of Ayia Napa, in the town of Sotira, you will find this beautiful sandy beach, within walking distance from the main Ayia Napa road. Taking its name from the quaint church of Ayia Thekla right above it, the 300-metre long beach is a designated Special Protected Area as part of the Natura 2000 network, and it’s great for families due to its shallow waters.
Specially trained lifeguards are stationed on the beach at certain times during the spring, summer and autumn months. Special wheelchair and assistance for disabled persons to enter the water is provided by the lifeguards on duty.
Other facilities include toilets and changing rooms, sunbeds and umbrellas. The beach is easily accessible by foot, car or bike, and parking is provided.
