Been here many a time and this is one of the better beaches of Cyprus. The water is clear, sand is clean and there are a few good places to eat like Adamos or Kalymnos. Some people even have their wedding reception events here for the view and the sunsets.

This beach is very close to where I stayed...it is a lovely quiet beach that slopes gently out..you pay for sun beds & umbrellas on the beach,but the ones on the grass near the restaurants are free if you buy from the bars...👍👍👍

Black sand and some shingle but with lovely white cliffs running down into the sea. Sun shades and beds provided for a small fee with a very helpful and comprehensive café just above on the cliff with even further views. There is even a full restaurant for those in need but we did not try it. Earlyish morning and off-season... More

This place needs work. It has the potential to be really nice but it lacks proper investment in facilities and cleaning up the beach. It was much nicer 20 years ago when it was a couple of old fashioned tavernas on a secluded beach. Wasn't worth taking pictures.

All that the Med has to offer - blue skies, turquoise water, sea&sand, refreshing&tranquil swimming, showers - along with a beautiful fish restaurant/cafe with spectacular views! A relaxing romantic day by the sea - a piece of unspoilt Cyprus. Unmissable!

Governor's Beach used to be a high quality attraction, with beaches that were crystal clear, but not any more since Vasiliko became fully operational and local fisheries started fish production, thereby creating a green and ugly sight...It still though has high quality fish restaurants, well worth the visit...

The proximity of a power station does not add to the eastern views, but the positive side is that tourists avoid it - and the locals, who know this, enjoy the lovely beaches and the spectacular white cliffs separating them. Warm, clear water and basic services make the place ideal for everyday swimming and sunbathing.

Perfect small beach with practically no people even in July.. black sand white rocks blue warm and very clean water. Very nice bar on the beach with music and cold drinks. For lunch I recommend the fish taverna just up the stairs from the beach with a breathtaking view on the sea.. must do when in Cyprus.
