The Paphos region
The area of Paphos is overflowing with traditional tavernas, historical sites, tourist attractions and sport & recreation facilities. Everyone is sure to find themselves the perfect activity, at any time of year. Located at a small harbour, it is the jewel in the West coast of Cyprus.Whether you are looking to catch some sunshine on the beach, or hitchhike through the hills and mountains, Paphos has it all.
Rich in history, Paphos is also said to be the birthplace for the mythological goddess of love and beauty, Aphrodite, complementing Cyprus' alias as “Aphrodite's Island”. Being on the list of UNESCO list of cultural and natural treasures of the world's heritage, the town was also the capital of Cyprus during the Greco-Roman times, and thus has many relics, legendary mosaics and architectural attractions for culture lovers. Palace of Knights is a must-explore for admirers of Sound & Light shows, which take place from April until October every year. There are countless historical sites, like the Temple of Athena and Church of the Panayia.
There are many bars and restaurants in the area reflecting the cultural atmosphere of Paphos. Enjoy the golden sandy beaches and local tavernas, offering fresh fish and classic dishes, and be captivated by the vibrant nightlife the town has in offer- anything from Karaoke to bars and traditional dance performances.
The village is situated among several wonderful Wineries around the hills, valleys and mountains of Paphos most of which feature free wine tasting. The Cyprus Tourism Organization has gone to great lengths to create several interesting Wine Routes to discover the treasures of the local wine that has been produced on the island for around 5000 years.
The circular Arnies Nature Trail of which there is a short route (3km) or long route (4km) is a few hundred meters from the Villa Alexandros. Halfway through the trail you'll encounter a natural spring that was used by the local inhabitants in the past for drinking, washing clothes, watering animals and irrigating the fields. There are signs along the paths identifying the various local flora and several spots where you can sit to admire the fantastic views.
The route crosses vineyards, other plantations as well as the community of Agios Dimitrianos where you will find the village church shaded by a great olive tree and a cave where the saint is said to have lived. Near the church there is a medical centre, a community information office, a community park and public conveniences.
Located in North West Cyprus, Polis holds the Akamas Peninsula. Just 30 minutes drive from Paphos, Polis is great for travellers- it is famous for its natural habitat, and is more than suitable for active holidays as the area has some fantastic offers for cycling, horse riding and golf.
Polis is also top notch for scuba diving with its turquoise waters. It is the least developed part of the island in the West, and so it is filled with wonders of nature. There are plenty of trails around Akamas Peninsula if one wants to hike and admire the magnificent mountain views.
You will easily find a range of delicious international food, as well as traditional tavernas in the town, which has a laid back and relaxed atmosphere to it.
Polis is also an admirable historical site, dating back as far as 1000 BC. It was built on the ancient cities of Marion-Arsinoe, thus many artefacts have been discovered and are on display at the local museum.
Polis Chrysochous Camp is the exclusive location in Cyprus where an eucalyptus forest meets with the coast, and where the local beach is located. It is about half a mile walk on the sandy beach from the town, or a flat coastal walk to the neighbouring Latchi resort. The beach has all the essential facilities such as showers, toilets, beach volley ball court and a bar offering snacks and refreshments.
The Akamas Peninsula is protected as an area of natural beauty, and covers 230 km² of the Western Tip of Cyprus.
Latchi is a charming fishing village stretching for 3 km of the North West coast. It lays at the edge of the breathtaking Akamas National Park. It is the home to some of the most well-known and praised fish taverns on the island- sit at the harbour and enjoy a delectable meal while watching the boats.
The Latchi beaches are flawless for swimming. Covered with clear sand, the beach offers sunbeds and parasols for hire, as well as water sports school. Have a go at scuba diving, windsurfing, snorkeling, surfing, water and jet skiing, para-sailing and much more… You can also learn how to sail and fish. A wide range of boat trips are available for a relaxing afternoon off-shore. If you are a fan of trekking, the you are in for a real treat with the area's breathtaking scenery and nature sites.
Visit the mythological Baths of Aphrodite, where according to the legends the goddess bathed in the pool surrounded by fig trees and the grotto. The water continuously runs from the overhead rocks, and the place is considered a source of fertility.
