Embraced by the sapphire waters of the Mediterranean Sea, Cyprus’ sun-drenched coasts are definitely able to wow all types of visitors. The beach experience varies from coast to coast, with unique characteristics in each region, including the colour of the sand and water; the marine life and natural significance; the organised facilities and water sport activities, and the popularity - or seclusion - of the shore. One common factor that unites all coasts and beaches is the seal of quality. The island consistently receives awards, accolades and top rankings for its water quality and safety, its eco-initiatives and the general cleanliness of its beaches. Cyprus is the proud recipient of 69 Blue Flag beaches (2021) - an eco-label awarded to beaches and marinas across the globe that meet its standards - and is also regularly crowned ‘Cleanest Bathing Waters in Europe,’ with Cyprus consistently reaching the highest scores in the Mediterranean, year after year. Cyprus’ beaches have the best water quality in the EU. Cyprus had the highest proportion of bathing sites with excellent water quality in the European Union with 100%, according to the European Commission and the European Environment Agency (EEA).
