Pissouri Bay is a small and quiet bay and has one of the most beautiful beaches on Cyprus island. The wonderful seashore is around two kilometres long, offers great facilities and unlike some of the others on the island is never crowded.
During most of the summer, the predominant winds are westerlies, which go right to left across the headland and into the bay. That makes it calmer and protected to the right for beginners, but windy enough to plane most days over to the left hand side of the bay.
The water temperature is usually over 23C in the summer.
Many people think the windy bay is all there is to Pissouri, but 3km up the road is the village of Pissouri. The traditional Cypriot village has and a fantastic nightlife, especially on Wednesday, when there are balancing acts and dancers in the square, adding to the amazing atmosphere in the town square.
Pissouri is a great all round kitesurfing holiday destination, as it offers lovely accommodation, strong winds, and a family friendly atmosphere. Generally the water is choppy, though the bay is more protected from wind driven swell, as the wind is lighter. But for advanced kiters, they only need to go out past the wind line for full force wind, and awesome jumping conditions.
The properties in Cyprus are built on the hillsides as its cooler in the summer, but also because they allow breathtaking views over the coast. Which is just how many of the hotels in Pissouri are built.
The people of Cyprus are known for being warm and welcoming. Though their native tongue is Greek, English is widely spoken all over the island. In a world where violence is ever increasing, the crime rate on the island is exceptionally low.
