The Geroskipou Municipal Beach is an institution of sorts in this part of Paphos. It all started when Ricco’s Bar opened back in 1975 on a rocky shore. But the locals – including authorities – saw potential in this place and transformed the bare coast of the sea into a Blue Flag sensation. Literally.

Geroskipou Municipal Beach: A Fantastic Snorkeling Spot

The Geroskipou Municipal Beach, also spelled “Yeroskipou,” traces its roots back to Ricco’s Bar, which opened in 1975. The bar still stands – a lifestyle institution of sorts at the shores of the sea. It’s a perfect setting for all kinds of outings. The family owning the place planted the trees that currently offer their generous shade over the sands and make the beach look like a lush Mediterranean paradise. They watched them grow over the years, and, due to the bar’s increased appeal, the local authorities, decided to develop and modernize the beach, depositing tons of sand on the rocky shorelines and building breakwaters to keep their new creation safe against the rage of the waves.

Ricco’s Bar has unique appeal at the Geroskipou Municipal Beach. It’s lovely decorated, boasting paths in checkered white and blue and cobalt tree houses, plus sunbeds with heavy mattresses for added comfort.

Geroskipou Municipal Beach, as a whole, counts among the top favorites of the Cypriots. Many of the locals come here every weekend to relax and take in the sunshine and the breeze. There are also concerts and thematic events in the summer, most of them organized by the local bars and taverns.

The breakwaters keep the waters shallow, calm, and safe for swimming. In addition, beachgoers can also rent jet skis, banana boats, or try out flyboarding – the coolest adrenaline-filled watersport available at Geroskipou Municipal Beach. If you are not into watersports, you can always play beach volleyball or other games – there are already fields to meet your sporting needs. Snorkeling is a good idea too because, occasionally, you can spot all kinds of marine creatures, including Green or Loggerhead Sea turtles.

The Geroskipou Municipal Beach is well-organized, with sunbeds and umbrellas harmoniously lining up the shore, plus enough changing rooms and showers, and lifeguards on duty from April until October. There are also playgrounds for children, plus bars and a family-run fish tavern that serves authentic fare to die for.

Lara Beach
When you stand on the shores of Lara Beach taking in the views under the generous summer sun of Cyprus, you will feel revitalized and recharged almost immediately. Because Lara Beach has a unique effect on her visitors. Granted, she is playing hard to get – it takes a four-wheel drive to reach her – but the effort is all worth it and here are the reasons why.
 
Latsi Beach
There are several spellings for the small fishing village of Latsi: Latchi, Lachi, and even Lakki. But no matter how you decide to spell it, it will not take away from the charm of the place. Latsi is largely unspoiled. Located next to the Akamas National Park on the Akamas Peninsula, the village itself is an idyllic treasure. And sunkissed Latsi Beach is the perfect spot for sunbathing.
 
Paphos Municipal Baths
The Municipal Bath Beach, which is also known as the Kato Paphos Beach, stretches from Yeroskipou towards the Paphos harbor along the Poseidonos Avenue. It is a favorite destination for experienced swimmers, as its waters are deep and clean.
 
Petra Tou Romiou
One of the easiest ways to understand why Cyprus is so special is to walk on the beach at Petra tou Romiou – the mythological birthplace of the goddess of love, Aphrodite. This is one of the prettiest stops on the Aphrodite Cultural Route.
