Finikoudes beach is considered as one of the most famous beaches in south Cyprus. The heart of Larnaca town is just behind the beach, divided from the shore by the coast road, Athenon Avenue.

Finikoudes beach was named after the small palm trees planted here back in 1922. Finikoudes beach is a Blue Flag status beach and is kept very clean by Larnaka Municipality, who also provide the summer lifeguard service.

The beach is around half a kilometre long and has fine, grey sand that kids love to play in. The sea is usually calm enough for youngsters to paddle and swim with adult supervision. Behind the beach lies the centre of Larnaca, so you can sunbathe in the morning, enjoy lunch at any of the many local restaurants, and do some shopping in the afternoon, all within easy walking distance of many of the popular beach-front hotels in Larnaca. If you drive to Finikoudes beach, there are several car parks nearby.

Finikoudes beach is the main beach in Larnaca. There are many facilities at this beach as it is in the centre of the town. To begin with there are many water sports to try and sunbeds and umbrellas available to rent for a relaxing day. Apart from these there are shops and restaurants to eat or drink at. There is also a small fun park with an arcade.
