The coastal town of Paphos with its medieval fort and quaint harbor is harmonious combination of historical sites, tourist resort and wonderful countryside. It is a region where it combines mountainous areas and the sea. It harmoniously joins culture, contemporary life and historic archaeological sites.
The Maa-Paleokastro site near Coral Bay holds an admirable view. It is where the Mycenaean Greeks first landed in Cyprus during the Bronze Age. Travel further inland and go on a wine village tour, make sure to visit the Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery and admire its beautiful icons, and, taste the wine there- the Monastery produces wine from its own winery.
The Akamas peninsula is a nationally protected area of untamed wilderness with awe-inspiring coastlines and sandy bays. Take in the panoramic views from the top. One of the last nesting grounds in the Mediterannean Sea for the Green-Back and Loggerhead turtles is located here; on Lara Beach.
Walk on one of the numerous nature trails and explore the rare endemic plants and spot different migratory birds. A thoroughly memorable experience would be a boat trip along the awesome coastline which includes the famous Aphrodite’s Rock.
