Off the beaten track in Polis Area

Off the beaten track in Polis Area

One of the most picturesque coastlines in Cyprus can be located in the Pomos and Pyrgos area. This is a true paradise for visitors that prefer peace and quiet, surrounded by greenery and beautiful beaches. Kato Pyrgos is the only Cypriot village located in the Morphou Bay that is controlled by the Republic of Cyprus. This village borders the controlled area where the Green Line was drawn after the 1974 invasion by Turkey. In 2010 a crossing line was opened in this area which allows visitors to cross over the occupied areas and travel to Nicosia.  Although this area is isolated, it can be easily reached if you are prepared to travel from Paphos to Latchi and then to the village of Pomos. Kato Pyrgos is a few kilometres from Pomos and the whole trip is well worth the journey as there are uninterrupted views of the mountains and coastline which are exclusive to the area.

Polis and the Akamas Peninsula

Polis is a small coastal town on the North West end of Cyprus. Centered on the Bay of Chrysochous and bordering the edge of the Akamas peninsula, the town of Polis has some of the best views on the island. It is a quiet tourist resort with picturesque small tavernas dotting the coastline. Latchi fishing village, which is on the outskirts of the town, is famous for its fresh fish taverns.  Polis was originally named Marion and was inhabited from the Neolithic age. It became one of the most important cities in Cyprus during this period and had important commercial relations with Attica and Corinth in Greece.
