The Paphos region
It was at Paphos that the mythological Goddess Aphrodite was born a legend, spawning a wave of cult worship from neighbouring countries that lasted several centuries. The large rock that juts from the sea is known as "Aphrodite's Rock" while the Baths of Aphrodite at Polis also echos her love for the island. At Palaepafos (Koulklia) lie the remains of the Goddess' earliest Sanctuary. Many historical treasures that have been discovered in Paphos are, the remarkable mosaics in the Houses of Dionysos, Theseus and Aion, beautifully preserved after 16 centuries under the soil.
There are the vaults and caves, Tombs of the Kings, the Pillar to which St. Paul was allegedly tied and whipped, the ancient Odeon Theatre and other places of interest including the Byzantine Museum and the District Archaeological Museum. Geroskipou with its remarkable five-domed Byzantine church of Agia Paraskevi, and its Folk Art Museum is a village known for its special delight 'loukoumi'. Agios Neofytos Monastery, boasts some of the finest Byzantine frescoes of the 12th and 15th centuries.
Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery makes its own range of wines using home-grown grapes. At Pano Panagia there is a small museum dedicated to the first president of Cyprus, Archbishop Makarios. From here it is a rewarding drive to the majestic Cedar Valley.
Tourism in Paphos is a recent development, four tourist areas have already been established; Paphos town which extends to Geroskipou, south-east and Chlorakas-Kisonerga to the north; Polis which extends to Latsi and Neo Chorio to the west; Coral Bay and Tala. Centres are also being developed in Drouseia, Agios Georgios (Pegeia) and Tsada.
With low-lying scenery around Paphos, much of it cultivated with banana plantations and backed by the gentle foothills of the western Troodos range, has an attractively open quality to it. The relatively unspoilt state of the countryside make the area a real delight for the walker and naturalist. While the sun drenched beaches are lapped by turquoise waters making the area a fabulous place to relax and an ideal base to explore this jewel in the Mediterranean.
The Polis / Goudi area
This beautiful region with its breathtaking views over miles of picturesque valleys makes this a wonderful setting for a villa holiday. This area also provides a variety of road-side restaurants and taverns offering everything from traditional Greek food to international cuisine. The Goudi valley is located near the larger town of Polis, which offers an abundance of supermarkets, shops, bars.
Following the coastline to the west lies the village of Latchi with its harbour and excellent fish restaurants. Small boats can be hired and vessels offering coastal excursions can also be found there. Diving and snorkelling are also available in Latchi. Just past the village of Latchi is the popular tourist attraction known as the baths of Aphrodite. The sporting and adventure facilities are endless and include exciting jeep safaris, balloon flights and sea fishing.
The resort town of Polis overlooks the beautiful Chrysochou Bay with its charming fishing refuge of Latsi. Cradled by rugged mountains, centred in the Chrysochous Bay and surrounded by a patchwork of citrus groves and vineyards, the sleepy town of Polis has managed to doze through the property boom that's transformed much of the south coast. The town's whitewashed sugar cube houses, plump Orthodox Church domes and shady courtyards are a reminder of a Cyprus that's fast disappearing and much of Polis' charm lies in watching local life tick slowly by.
Polis is centred round a paved plaza that hosts a colourful daily market showcasing the best local produce. At sunset the market stalls are replaced with restaurant tables piled high with delicious platefuls of meze and fresh local fish, creating a true Cypriot atmosphere that gives you an appetite for the real Cyprus.
The nearby Akamas Peninsular is an untouched wilderness laced with hiking trails and secluded coves, an area reserved for conservation and of great natural interest. Off shore the waters are a glassy mosaic of greens and blues that promise some of the best snorkelling and diving on the island.
Polis is an ideal base for exploration of the interesting surrounding area, discovering small Byzantine churches and Monastery, relaxing on unspoilt beaches or wiling away time in sleepy tavernas and cafes.
