The region is also popular for water sports such as kite surfing and jet skiing.
PISSOURI AND THE SURROUNDING AREA
Eating out in Cyprus is very easy, very enjoyable and relatively cheap compared with the UK. Almost all Greek Cypriots speak English and so ordering food and drink is no problem. Pissouri Village Square, which is only 10 minutes walk from the apartment, is a great place to eat, with many tavernas serving a good range of meals. Every Wednesday night in the summer the square has a Greek evening with dancing etc – you should book a table with one of the tavernas if you want to be there for what is a very typical Greek Cypriot experience. If you do not feel like going down to the Square, the Olympus Palace and Hillview restaurants are a few minutes walk away.
Pissouri Beach is about 6 minutes drive from the villa, about a half hour walk there and ¾ hour back (up the hill). Around the beach area there are many tavernas and shops. On the beach there is a lifeguard station and you can hire beach equipment, sailing dinghies, surfboards, jet skis etc for very reasonable rates. Scuba diving is available locally.
Along the coast to the west of Pissouri there is the famous Aphrodite Rock, the birthplace of Aphrodite, where you can also have an excellent meal at the restaurant overlooking the rock. To the east of Pissouri is Avdimou beach where there are also good tavernas.
Some places of interest:
Olive oil museum at Anogyra; Wild Valley Ostrich Farm, north of Pissouri; Donkey Sanctuary at Vouni; Greek/Roman sites around Pafos and Lemesos; the Troodos mountain range and of course the numerous monasteries, the largest and most splendid of which is Kykkos in the Troodos mountain range.
