Located in the area of Ayia Napa, Nissi Beach is one of the most famous sandy beaches on the island. The name derives from the small islet near by the sea called Nissi (Νησί in Greek – Island). No habitants live there, but still the islet is easily accessible on foot through the surface waters. The length of the entire beach is approximately around 500 meters with its waters being crystal clear blue, hence the area has been awarded with a blue flag designation.
