Get around

If you are looking to find an unspoilt side of Cyprus, head for the northwestern tip of the island where you will find Polis Chrysochous. Formerly a backpacker's destination in the 1980's, Polis has grown and developed but still retains it's quiet charm. Polis Chrysochous bay is spectacular and the Akamas peninsula which juts out from the end of the bay is wild and rugged offering outdoor lovers countless nature trails and rocky tracks to excite walkers and mountain bikers alike.

The mountain villages around the Polis area offer true Cypriot hospitality and authentic home cooking so get hold of a bicycle and explore! There are bikes available for hire in Polis and there is also a specialist mountain bike company in Polis that will take you on guided rides using high quality mountain bikes.

You should really take a look at the picturesque harbor and the sweet and savory shops are exquisite. One delicacy unique to the people of Cyprus is their frozen yoghurt


The Akamas peninsula on the northwestern tip of the Paphos region is perfect for all types of outdoor activities. Watersports enthusiasts can scuba-dive, snorkel, paraglide, water-ski, sail, jet-ski or just swim. The rugged peninsula is also a playground for mountain biking and trekking. There are a number of nature trails on the peninsula, all clearly marked and of varying length and difficulty.


Best places to eat in the Polis/Latsi area. Try Kouppas Stone Tavern in Neo Chorio for great value authentic Cypriot cuisine or Y&P restaurant in Latsi for the best fish in the area.
