ayia marina sunbeach villas
Townhouse | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
This is a beautiful 3 bedroom house is situated on the beach front in Yialia village near Polis alongside the coastal road. The house benefits from superb mountain views to the rear and panoramic views of the Mediterranean coastline and Akamas Peninsula to the front. It offers some of the most stunning sunset views the island has to offer. It is a truly beach front house. One is able to open the veranda gate straight onto the sand (no shoes required!). From the raised deck at the edge of the house, one will be able to watch the water breaking on the beach and, if lucky during June to October perhaps observe (at night) a wild sea turtle laying its eggs or hatchlings making their way to the water! It is quiet and romantic. There one can enjoy the fantastic sunsets and spends extraordinary nights under the stars.
You can enjoy lazing on your pick of miles of beach between the villa and the pretty little town of Polis, every form of watersports you can imagine at nearby Latchi, amazing fish restaurants in nearby Pomos and exploring the cool heights of Paphos Forest or the wilderness that is the Akamas.
There are local supermarkets and bakeries in Agia Marina with more extensive shops and a large supermarket in Polis. The local villages and Pomos have a variety of interesting tavernas for snacks, lunches or dinners. If you like fish, you can eat it straight from the fishing boats at Pomos or latsi.

The Paphos region
Paphos Town once the capital of the island is now included in the official UNESCO list of cultural and natural treasures of the world's heritage. The remains of villas, palaces, theatres, fortresses and tombs mean that the town is of exceptional architectural and historic value. The well preserved mosaics and the Tombs of the Kings are probably the biggest cultural draw with further archaeological discoveries continually being made. Ano Pafos on the cliff is the main administrative centre and residential district while Kato Pafos, by the sea, is the main tourist area built around the harbour and medieval port.
Exploring Coral Bay, Paphos and everywhere in between, increases the list of available activities and attractions to include mini golf, watersports, go-karting, horse riding, a snooker hall, bowling alley, heritage sites, modern shopping facilities, a waterpark and the Paphos Bird and Animal Park.
The Polis / Ayia Marina area
Away from the more mainstream tourist destinations, Ayia Marina is a small, quiet village with a long stretch of unspoilt coastline, situated between the village of Argaka and the tiny seaside resort of Pomos with its small fishing harbour. The village has a small grocery store, a coffee shop, a bakery and a small souvlaki house .
The nearest restaurant is in the neighbouring village of Argaka approximately 6 kilometres away, with a handful of additional tavernas dotted along the coastal road that leads back towards Polis. The undeveloped beaches of this area stretch along a natural coastline of coarse sand, shingle and pebble. For a day here you will need to bring your own beach mat and umbrella. Refreshments can be found at one of the tavernas scattered along the coastal road or you can take a cool box and lunch under the shade of the trees in one of the designated picnic areas in Argaka.
Polis is the principal town for the northwest region, huddled around a pedestrianised square where visitors and locals gather in the mornings to enjoy a coffee and watch the world pass by and in the evenings to dine at one of the wide selection of restaurants, tavernas and cafes which radiate out from the centre. The town has an archaeological museum and cultural centre. Polis which is approximately 14 kilometres away offers the nearest organized beach to the villas backed by tall Eucalyptus trees.
A little further along the coast from Polis is the seaside resort of Latchi with its recently opened 200 berth marina. Here you will find an array of inviting sea-front tavernas with a superb selection of fresh fish and seafood served daily. Just beyond Latchi you will find the well known 'Baths of Aphrodite' and for nature lovers the protected Akamas Peninsular an area particular suited to walkers and adventurers who can explore the many criss-crossed nature trails. The coastline of this area can also be enjoyed by boat with daily excursions available from the marina.
Moving away from the coastal areas to venture a little further inland, you can explore some of the villages off the beaten track where you'll discover such delights as village cultural centres and museums, galleries, Churches and wineries with free wine tasting!
Polis and the surrounding villages count bowling, go-karting, fishing, cycling, watersports and scuba diving amongst the many activities on offer to the visitor.
