Location of Ifigenia

Locality

Great Things to Do Near Ifigenia

The Akamas Peninsula

This wild corner of the north west is virtually uninhabited and covered with forests. Ideal for exploring on foot, it is home to many species of wildlife, flora, fauna, birds and butterflies. It is popular with walkers and maps of the walks and nature trails can be obtained from the Tourist Offices in Polis and Paphos.

Fish of the day

The Polis area is well known for its fresh fish, and many of the restaurants here will feature fish and seafood dishes using the catch brought in to Latchi or one of the other local harbours.

Byzantine museum in Peristerona

This small but interesting museum has a varied collection of icons, woodcarvings, metal craft and embroidery.

In the footsteps of Aphrodite

Paphos is famously the birthplace of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty, and subsequently a place of pilgrimage for the entire Hellenic world. Aphrodite’s Rock is a massive stone that marks the spot where she emerged from the sea. The Baths of Aphrodite, located between Polis and Cape Arnaouti, are formed by a natural grotto and where she reputedly bathed after her liaisons with Adonis.

Polis town

As well as a good range of bars and restaurants to discover, there are charming craft shops to browse in Polis.

Day at the beach

Head down to Polis Chrysochou Bay, where you will find sandy beaches with watersports such as stand-up paddling, windsurfing and diving on offer, as well as boat hire and boat trips.

Take a dip in the Blue Lagoon

This is a sheltered bay in the Akamas peninsula, whose crystal clear waters are usually warmer than the rest of the area. A variety of boat trips leave from Latchi, and most include a stop off for a refreshing swim.

Lara Bay

One of the most isolated beaches on the island, it is a haven for green and loggerhead turtles to lay their eggs. During the laying season (May – September) the females struggle ashore to lay their eggs and bury them. Volunteers then relocate the eggs to a fenced hatchery, protecting them from predators.  After seven weeks the eggs hatch and the babies make their way to the water.

Paphos

A town of two parts – Kato (Lower) Paphos is the area around the harbour and castle and is the touristy hub with hotels, cafes, bars, shops and from where excursions are sold and boat trips depart.  However, parts of it have Unesco World Heritage status with fine Roman ruins and mosaics as well as Byzantine remains. Ktima Paphos lies 3 kms uphill and features narrow, winding streets around the Turkish Quarter which has been turned into a covered market.  Lovely views of the town below can be enjoyed from the cafes and bars on the edge of this part of town.

Golf, tennis or spa?

The Minthis resort in the hills (about half an hour by car) has an 18-hole golf course, tennis courts for hire, and a wellness spa.

Watch the sun setting

The Western end of Cyprus is perfect for watching this fascinating spectacle. Observing the sky coming alive with fiery crimson and orange hues never fails to please! Two of the most popular places to enjoy it are at Aphrodite’s Rock or Paphos Medieval Castle.

Spend a day exploring the Troodos Mountains

There is so much to see here ranging from the ten painted churches, with their stunning medieval frescoes, to the Kykkos Monastery, also the village of Troodos itself from where numerous hiking or cycling trails begin. Or simply exploring the lush forested hillside, often hiding spectacular waterfalls.
