    Pristine Waters and Vibrant Atmosphere, but Crowded Beach
    The beach in question offers pristine waters that are refreshingly clean, creating an inviting environment for a swim. However, it is worth noting that the beach tends to be extremely crowded, with sunbeds often reserved from early morning, making it challenging to find a spot for oneself. Despite the crowds, the beach provides a range of facilities suitable for both children and adults. Families can enjoy various amenities and activities, ensuring a fun-filled day for everyone. The presence of good restaurants and bars nearby adds convenience and options for satisfying hunger or quenching thirst. Furthermore, having a shop in close proximity is a definite advantage, making it easy to access necessary supplies or grab beach essentials. The availability of nearby facilities and services contributes to the overall convenience and comfort of visitors. While the crowds can be overwhelming, the beach's clean water, family-friendly amenities, and proximity to restaurants, bars, and a shop make it a solid destination for an enjoyable day at the seaside. Arriving early or choosing less peak times may help mitigate the challenges posed by the crowds, allowing for a more relaxed and pleasant experience.

    A must visit while in Cyprus!
    Visited Nissi beach twice while we were in Cyprus. We were staying in protaras and easily got the bus to right near Nissi beach. Beds were only €2.50 for the day, clean beautiful beach. Even the beach bar to each and drink in was reasonable.

    Great water and party for young people at the beach bar
    Very crowded beach with amazing clean and clear water and white sand. Showers is just on one place and the beach is too long. It’s shame that they are not free and you have tu pay for it. Also in july and august if you want to have un umbrella with sunbeds you should go before 7 o clock at the morning, after that, it’s all full.

    Very popular beach!
    We visited Nissi Beach during our Ayia Napa holiday as a break from the pool. It was a 20 minute walk from our hotel but there are good bus options if not in the mood for walking. It can get very busy there, we arrived around 9.30am and found sunbeds (7.50 Euros for 2 beds and umbrella) to the left of the main beach, which felt nicer than the more crowded parts. The sea was lovely and blue and not very rocky, also quite shallow unless far out. There was a raised, seated snack bar near us which was not too busy and did burgers/hot dogs etc with drinks and smoothies. There is a foam party at the central part of the beach which everyone seemed to enjoy. We tried the jet skis which was fun. In all we stayed until late afternoon before heading back. We all enjoyed it, though it can get very busy. We would probably go again if in Ayia Napa.

    Very busy but beautiful views and nice clear warm sea!
    Visited in august one late afternoon and it was still very busy but we did manage to get 2 Sun loungers and an umbrella (7.50 euro) - if your wanting to spend the day here I would recommend getting here early to get the best spot. There is room however to put your towels down on the sand. The walk over to the island is nice, sea is very clear and warm! A nice change from the cold dirty sea back in the UK. It was RNB afternoon at the Nissi Bay Beach Bar so we enjoyed listening to this while catching some rays - there’s a few other bars / restaurants and shops here too.

    Beautiful!
    This beach is stunning! The views are beautiful. Sea is so clear and couldn’t see any rubbish as mentioned in other posts. Did look out for this after reading what some people said. It was very clean when we went. It is busy but expected due to how beautiful it is. Get there early and there is lots of sun beds. One of the best beaches we have visited.

    Crystal clear water
    Wonderful white sand beach with crystal clear water and beach bars. Lovely hot weather but chaos during summer as the beach is not that big. Highly recommended Petra Snack Bar. Self service beachfront bar with fantastic view, attentive staff and reasonably priced. Cheaper than other beach bars tho.

    Cyprus my favorite place for winter
    Cyprus and Nissi Beach is my favorite winter destination. Unfortunately Wizz cancelled the flight from my town Cluj-Napoca to Larnaka on winter period. If somebody can make some pressure to restart flying on this route ,please do it.

    Fun in the sun
    We were on a big family holiday staying in Protaras but went to Nissi beach twice as we enjoyed it the first time so much. The beach is lovely and the sea is really clear. There is also a lovely beach bar with a DJ playing all day. On our second visit we did some of the water sports on offer. Eight of us went on Twister which was a mental eight minutes of fun. Then four more went on Cyclone which was good but not as crazy as Twister. Would definitely recommend you spend the day at Nissi beach.

Beach is very beautiful and water is awesome! Lot of places to eat and buy a drink. But if you don't like places with many people this is not for you. Big crowd and too many people.

The beach was beautiful just like all of the beaches in Cyprus, the water was slightly more blue which was gorgeous, but the amount of people and screaming uncontrolled children really cancelled that out. Any other beach is just as beautiful with far less people and more of a relaxing atmosphere!
