Make the most of the glorious summer sunshine and relax on the beach, or head out to the turquoise sea to tackle watersports adventures. Whether you’re travelling as a couple or a family, Koukounaries holidays have something for everyone.
Things to do
Koukounaries’ legendary Blue Flag beach is a big draw for holidaymakers.

And if you want to take a break from the beach and explore local culture, why not pay the Monastery of Panagia Evangelistria a visit?
