The Paphos region
Situated at the western end of Cyprus, Paphos is the least developed region of the island. The area surrounding Paphos Town, the district capital on the south coast has grown rapidly over the last 30 years but has thankfully not been totally overwhelmed by the concrete developments of some resorts at the eastern end of the island. It is a bustling commercial centre but the older areas still retain some charm and provide a wide variety of restaurants and bars to cater for all tastes.
The town of Paphos is included in the official UNESCO list of cultural and natural treasures of the world's heritage. Most famous of its antiquities are the Roman Mosaics reputed to be the best in the eastern Mediterranean and a must-see for any tourist. Located beside the harbour, the site is well signposted and there is plenty of parking.
Travelling north of Paphos Town the terrain gradually becomes hillier and sparsely populated with numerous vineyards dotted along the road to Polis, the second largest town of the region, situated near the north coast at the centre of Chrysocou Bay.
Paphos region enjoys a Subtropical-Mediterranean climate, with the mildest temperatures on the island. The typical summer's season lasts about 8 months, from April to November, although in March and December temperatures may also reach 20 °C
Latchi is situated on the north west tip of Cyprus. Originally a fishing village, in the past it served as a small port for shipping carobs. The old stone carob warehouses have been converted into restaurants and fish tavernas and the harbour provides a picturesque backdrop. The harbour has been extended to encompass a small marina which offers boat hire, scuba diving and other water-based activities.
Paphos district is the centre of the cult of Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty and protectress of the island. Close by Latchi are the Baths of Aphrodite, the sylvan grotto where the goddess was believed to have bathed. It is a popular tourist attraction although only a small pool surrounded by wild fig trees. It is however the start of one of the nature trails up into the Akamas Peninsular, with spectacular views over the bay.
