Sea and beaches
The sea in Cyprus is very calm and beautiful with crystal clear waters. In addition to 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 perfect – no sea urchins by the shore, no jellyfish, and even no sharks that would be dangerous for humans. Fishing is very popular among the locals and tourists.
More than 50 beaches of Cyprus were awarded with the "Blue Flag" – a mark of conformity to the highest quality and safety standards. All the beaches on the island are municipal. This means that the entrance to any beach, including the hotels` ones, is free. However, at the same time you will be offered to pay for additional services, such as deck chairs, umbrellas, towels (hotel beaches).
