Beach ?

Hi, first time visitor to Cyprus, thinking of booking The Avanti Village Apartments, I believe they are close to the beach. Is it a sandy beach? And is it easy to walk into the sea, no hidden rocks etc? Our daughter is partially blind, but quite independent and will want to go swimming... Thanks

If it’s good sandy beaches your looking for then Protaras or Ayia Napa, on the eastern coast are the best on the island.

Best flying into Larnaca for above as about a 3 hour drive from Paphos and less than 1 hour from Larnaca

The beach closest to Avanti is sandy and it is easy to walk into the sea.

Avanti complex and paphos are lovely but the beaches there aren't the best. Better beaches at the other end of the island.

If you have to go to paphos end for other reasons try coral bay area- they be better for sandy/ swimming with children/

Stayed at Avanti last sept, it was ok but ground floor apartments are not private and have no wall around their balconies and huge step/drop- off the edge-

Many had probs with little ones!

Just thinking of your daughters safety- we stayed in upper apartment,i would normally prefer ground but allergic to cat fur!

Although many sign’s up to ask you not to feed the cats as they are not wormed or flea’d, and this can cause illnesses-but folk still feed and sit on the floor stroking and teasing/ feeding them-

LOTS of shade around pool, if thats your thing-

And pool bar was nice-

Nothing special but did the trick i guess-
