With crystal-clear blue waters and stunning, natural beauty, Pissouri has seen its popularity soar in the past few years, making it one of the most popular places for visitors and locals alike. It is also seen as an ideal place to buy property by expats looking to move or retire on the island.
Facilities on the beach include toilets, showers, sun beds, umbrellas, water sports and a beach volleyball court. There are five public footpaths, with two of them offering disabled access.
The west end of the bay leads to the headland of Asprorotsos (‘white rock’) that protrudes from the sea. At its end, there are small, sandy coves. The views from the top are spectacular, whilst you may also get a glimpse of the wild birds that visit the area, including falcons. The beach is often a breeding ground for sea turtles.
Visitors can enjoy many restaurants, bars and cafes lining the beach, or visit the village of Pissouri and explore its charming, traditional character.
Lifeguards with lifesaving equipment and first aid services are stationed at the beach from April – October, 09:00 – 17:00, and until 18:00 during the summer season. Access is easy by foot, bike, bus or car with car-parking facilities available.
