Two parking options, first turn off is the one I normally take as it's closer, just take the turning for St Kathleen's restaurant and turn left just before it leaving the GUTCE turtle conservation hut on your right. Second option is to keep driving on main road towards Esentepe then take next left which has a bigger parking lot, shower facilities and cafe but more crowded.

Alagadi gets less wind than beaches further west so don't bother unless it's windy in Girne (Kyrenia) or further west. A good option if it's too windy further west.
Gets very crowded at weekends so be very careful of locals and tourists using beach and shallows. Also, this is the main Turtle nesting site in Cyprus so DO NOT disturb marked nests during summer months. Otherwise this is definitely one of the best spots on the island with plenty of space, nice kickers (left foot forward) and even some small waves when it gets windy.
