    The village of Potamitissa near Pelendry

    5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was out in the countryside in the Troodos range a few days ago.
    I spent 4 days in the peaceful and very small village of Potamitissa, at the Ambelikos Agro Traditional Hotel.
    I took long walks each morning and again in the afternoon, and I recommend it to nature lovers.
    See some of my pictures.

    Walk in the countryside if you love Nature!

    I was in Cyprus a few days ago and I spent all my holidays up the mountains.
    It is so beautiful out in the open fields where trees are in blosssom, with the beautiful smell coming from the blooming trees in the air.

    I was having my morning walks early before breakfast, and what I could only hear was the singing of birds and the gargling of water.

    Locals told me that in April when the nightigales come it will be more beautiful, so I am flying there again in a month's time.

    actually not off the beaten track but on the beach

    by MrBill Updated May 17, 2007

    Cyprus has a pretty big cat population. You do not see near so many dogs. Maybe it is the heat? It is good because I have only seen one rat, once. Better too many cats than too many rodents. But they really do breed quickly. And can then be a nuisance in and around outdoor cafes and restaurants. I am as guilty as the next person. Sometimes when the bigger cats bully the smaller ones I try to slip the young kittens a little extra to eat. However, it is not right as it just encourages them to hang around the table. Sometimes they even get more than a little aggressive. However, as the cat population sometimes gets too large then the city will round them up or poison them. Not a really nice thought, but trying to sterlize them would be too costly. Still, if you like cats, you will see them in Cyprus in all shapes and sizes.

  • Careful goats abound on minor roads

    by prosaic Updated May 15, 2005

    Always be careful when wandering off the main tourist routes- Cyptrus has very rural elements to its personality - there are a lot of goats and , though well tended and usually supervised - they are not expecting you on the road any more than you are expecting them!

    Warning Goats!

    running on the beach

    by MrBill Written Mar 18, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    During the summer it is too hot to run along the beach unless you go very early in the morning or unless you are a real glutton for punishment. It is hard to jog in the evening because the dusk is so short and it gets dark very quickly. However, in the spring, autumn and late winter (starting in February/March) it is ideal for running.

    The beach is the perfect place to do it. The sand is a very fine silt deposited by wind and waves, but originating in the deserts of N. Africa. When it gets wet, they pack down nicely and make an ideal surface for running.

    I do not know all the beaches on the island, but I am familar with Limassol. In Limassol they have made a great attempt to correct past mistakes and install a bike path and walkway all along the coast. They have succeeded between the Old Harbor and the Municipal Parking Lot in the heart of the Tourist Area which is about 5 km one way. Then for about 2-3 kms there is no proper pathway along the water, certainly not for running. Then near the McDonald's on the eastside of town the water walkway starts again and runs another 5 km to the St. Rafael Marina.

    So you have a good 10 kms of biking and walking paths along the beachfront save for the nuisance of having to go through the tourist zone inland. Naturally these paths are also good for inlining, cycling or just walking, too.
