Amathus Bay

Amathus Bay sits quietly on the south coast of Cyprus. Ruins near the village are all that remains of its status as an ancient royal city, said to have been home to the children of the god Heracles. These days, its whitewashed cottages and small portfolio of restaurants attract holidaymakers who want to get away from it all – with the option of a 10-minute drive to lively Limassol which has a lot more to offer in the way of activities and excusrions, you can also step it up a notch by throwing yourself into some amazing water sports. The main beach in Amathus Bay is called, appropriately, Sands. The long, dune-backed stretch is seldom busy and the shallow waters are great for paddling or swimming. There’s also a beach bar with a grassy sun terrace for kicking back with a drink.
