Located at the famous coastal resort of Ayios Tychonas in the Limassol district, the beach of Santa Barbara is sandy and serene.
Comprised of sand with some rocks, the clean waters are further enhanced by an artificial reef, with the ancient Amathounta port offering excellent opportunities for snorkelling. There is a scenic footpath that leads westwards, passing the ancient city and the port of Amathounta.
The beach is also fast becoming a popular spot for kite surfers, due to the relatively strong winds.
Facilities on the beach include toilets, showers, changing rooms, sun beds and umbrellas. There are a variety of accommodation, restaurants and kiosks in the general area.
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 available.
The beach also offers disabled access.
