Two of Europe's top beaches hail from Cyprus, according to Tripadvisor, the leading travel guidance platform.

Nissi Beach in Ayia Napa secures the 7th spot on Tripadvisor's 2024 Best Beaches in Europe list, making it a must-visit destination. This renowned beach also clinches the 22nd position on the World’s Best Beaches for 2024 list and ranks 6th on the new Top Ten Sustainable Beaches list.

Meanwhile, Fig Tree Bay beach in Protaras rises five places from the previous year, now claiming the 15th Best Beach in Europe title.

Each year, Tripadvisor unveils its "Travellers’ Choice Best of the Best Awards for Beaches," an extensive compilation based on user reviews and ratings amassed over a year.

Sarah Firshein, Tripadvisor's head of editorial, comments on the 2024 rankings, noting the diversity of beach preferences within the community. She highlights that the top 25 winners represent 18 countries across five continents. Europe dominates the top spots, indicating a shift in traveller preferences toward coastal destinations like Portugal and Italy.

Tripadvisor's Travellers’ Choice Awards Best of the Best title celebrates excellence in travel, awarded to destinations receiving an exceptional volume of positive reviews over a 12-month period. This prestigious recognition is granted to less than 1% of Tripadvisor's 8 million listings.
