Things To Do – Around The Island

Akamas with flowersPeyia is on the edge of the Akamas National Park with its many nature trails, outstanding natural scenery and the famous Lara Bay where turtles come ashore to lay their eggs.

Travelling north of Peyia, through the Akamas National Park, you can visit the towns of Polis and Latchi. Polis is a traditional town close to the beach whilst Latchi has recently modernised its harbour and is famous for its fish restaurants. Close by is the Baths of Aphrodite.

Cyprus currently has 3 championship golf courses – Tsada,  Aphrodite Hills and Secret Valley. All are less than 25 minutes drive away and more are planned including a pair of courses near to Polis.

If you wish to travel and see more of Cyprus then the beautiful Kykko Monastery and the Troodos Mountains, where you could ski in the winter, are well worth the drive.

Along the motorway from Paphos is Limasoll which is the departure port if you are considering a cruise over to Egypt to view the Pyramids. Further on is Nicosia, the Cypriot capital, which was divided after the Turkish invasion in 1974. Further in the mountains from Nicosia is the famous lace making town of Lefkara.

Cyprus has many other historic sites away from the Paphos area including the Birthplace of Aphrodite near to Pissouri and the Curium Amphitheatre close to Limasoll and the Akrotiri peninsula.

There are a variety of beaches in the Limasoll area Curium, Ladies Mile & Governors Beach although Cyprus has plenty of quieter beaches to enjoy.
