    Boat Trip

    by HollieHolden Written Apr 14, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The boat trips leaving from the nearby town Latchi are really enjoyable. The boat trips generally last a day travelling along the north coast of the Akamas Peninsula. At lunchtime the boat is moored in a turquoise cove where you are free to snorkel or relax on the boat and enjoy the excellent BBQ lunch cooked fresh. The scenery in this area is breathtaking as it is a national park and there are no big developments spoiling the view.

    Khrysorroyiatissa Monastery

    by nada1712 Written Feb 25, 2003

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This beautiful monastery although not the most ornate, is my favourite in the Troodos mountains. It is found in a shady bend of the mountain road and it has wonderful peaceful views over cultivated valleys.

    The Wine Route....Kolios Winery

    by greekcypriot Updated Oct 26, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Situated in the Paphos district on a mountain peak, the Winery is close to the village of Ayios Photios on the way to the Monastery of Chryssoroyiatissa.

    The grapes here are hand-picked and processed with the most recent wine technology not long after they are collected.

    The plentiful sunshine on the island the great height and other important factors give excellent quality grapes with excellent taste.

    Cyprus wines have been famous since ancient times.

    Following this tradition to these days, Kolios family continues to create excellent quality wines with a feeling of responsibility, enthusiasm and love for what they are producing. Get here, meet the owners and try some of their excellent wines….Buy a few to take home as a Cypriot souvenir to remind you of your memorable holidays in the beautiful Island of Aphrodite, the goddess of Love.

    In the past I have tried “Maratheftiko” and “Shiraz Merlot” which are a must try if you have not tried so far.
    Very recently on my last trip to Paphos I tried the ‘Cornetto’ at the very popular Seafood Restaurant ‘Kymata’ of the Asimina Suites. It is another superb wine with excellent taste… It stands out for its refined aroma and thirst-quenching freshness.

    The production of these superb Kolios wines is limited and it does not exceed the 3.000 bottles. They can be very special for those who love the singularity in wines like me.

    Cheers everyone!

    Chrysochou Bay - the beach at Latchi

    by egonwegh Updated Feb 6, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A visit to the quiet beach at Latchi, west of the town of Polis. We were there in January - February 2004. The water was rather cold, but there was plenty of time to just sit on the beach and enjoy the view.

    LATCHI WATERSPORTS CENTRE, located just down the road from polis and paphos is where we had the most fun on our holiday, we hired a 250hp speedboat for a day and it was amazing, we was given a map briefing of the amazing akamas coastline, then some instructions on how to drive the boat, throwing the anchor etc. Within an hour i felt very confident as if i'd been driving boats my whole life :) We snorkelled in the amazing Blue Lagoon then we did some tube riding with the ringo that we hired with the boat. This was by far the best day of our holiday followed a close 2nd by the Discover Scuba Diving we did, an afternoons dive course which we all thoroughly enjoyed. Would most definately recommend this company to anyone visiting Cyprus, this is a must do, we have some great memories and pics. Thanks to Tom, Costas and the rest of Latchi Watersports vast crew.

    The boat we hired for the day!

    Latchi, Polis

    by greekcypriot Updated Mar 1, 2015

    I thought I had to create this tip to show what the coast is like in September after much rainfall and wind, but also when the coast gets calm and is so tempting for swimming.

    The people in the 1st picture might not swim but they can at least sunbathe.
    Can you spot them?

    The funny thing is that umbrellas are down when the sea is calm but nobody seems to be swimming in the 2nd.
    The reason is the Yoga sessions and other activities that keep tourists busy at this time. When these are over, several get down to the beach.

    Notice the colour of the sea.

    The view is from the Zening Resorts I stayed recently. %c

    Wildlife around Polis

    by stevieUK Written Jan 16, 2005

    Keep an eye open for the a variety of wildlife you are likely to wander past - for example we bumped into the fella in the picture taking about five minutes to cross a quiet road.
    Around Polis we've also seen black python and grey hammer head vipers, large fruit bats (about fifty tend to eat off plants near the cafe as you leave polis towards the camp site), turtles -saw one in Laatchi harbour, and a variety of unusual birds.

    Didn't seem able to turn grey!

    The sheer peacefulness and beauty walking around this lovely monastery with its laden fruit trees and heady aromas from the honeysuckles was indeed wonderful. I didn't want to leave it.
