Although the swimming season only lasts from mid-April until the end of October, it’s not unusual to see people swimming here in the colder months. The waters stay warm enough to allow dedicated bathers they favorite pastime year-round.
Even divers find the Municipal Bath Beach attractive because the deep waters are clean enough to allow you to see the beautiful underwater world. Although the area’s fauna is not as exciting as in other parts of Cyprus, you can still see the occasional shoal of fish.
