Golden Beach is a 700 meter long beach. A small village nearby has the same name. It takes its name from the fine sand, which has glass elements in it and provides a sparkling effect during sunshine. Golden Beach has become a popular destination for wind-surfers and kite-surfers from around the world due to the windy conditions inside as well as outside the small bay. During the summer months, many visitors come to Golden Beach, not only to pursue water-sports, but also to enjoy the shallow waters and the amazing scenery. There is a bus connection with the main towns of the island.
The region around the beach is considered to be the most fertile of the whole island due to its water resources. A number of hotels are available for those who wish to spend their vacations on this side of the island.
