Located in the village of Faros, 10 km east of Agios Kirikos, Faros Beach is a popular weekend getaway for citizens of Agios Kirikos and the surrounding villages owing to its close proximity and ideal waters for swimming. The sandy-pebble beach stretches a long distance, running the full length of the village and then curving around towards the northern tip of the island.
Located on the beach front are several tavernas, bars/cafes, souvenir shop and mini-market. There is also a volleyball net and a short pier where small boats/yachts can tie up and one can fish. Faros beach is also the place where locals windsurf and kayak rentals are available. Faros is an ideal place to stay for a few days with a variety of rooms, studios and apartments for rent on and behind the beach. Faros is also the base for visiting Drakano Fortress and Agios Giorgis Beach.
