Aplostra Beach

Aplostra Beach (also known as Ladies Mile Beach) is located on the Akrotiri Peninsula, near the city of Limassol, within the Limassol district of Cyprus.
 





The beach spans about five miles, yet one end of the beach is closed off, since it's part of the British bases.  There are several restaurants for visitors scattered along the beachfront.

Some parts of Aplostra Beach is quite peaceful, particularly in the mornings, yet this beach has shallow water and rather rough sand.  Due to the shallow water, it's a popular beach for families with young children.

According to a legend, this beach was named after a horse, called Lady, which a British officer used to ride along these sands.  Hence, the commonly called name: Ladies Mile Beach.

The roads leading to Aplostra Beach are extremely rough, yet plenty of people visit this beach.  Hopefully, the roads will be properly fixed to provide a pleasant drive to the beach.
 



For those willing to drive the rough roads, Aplostra Beach is a pleasant way to spend a day in Cyprus.
