The sea in Cyprus is considered to be very beautiful, warm and clean. Apart from its aesthetic qualities, the sea has a rich marine life. It is inhabited by large turtles, octopuses, shrimps, and crabs. Despite the presence of the sea animals, the level of safety is almost high as you will not see any sea urchins by the shore, jellyfish, and even sharks that would put your life in danger. Fishing is also very popular among the locals and tourists.
Cyprus has been awarded with the “Blue-flag” for more than 50 of its beaches. All the beaches are municipal and the entrance to any beach including the hotel’s ones is free. However, you may have to pay for any additional services such as umbrellas, sunbeds and towels.
