Great Things to Do Near Popi

Visit the Dragon’s Cave!

If you dare, walk along the beach from Pomos harbour and scramble over some rocks to see the mythical Dragon's Cave... it is claimed to be the lair of a dragon who used to ward off would-be brigands in days gone by!

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 Pomos or one of the other local harbours.

Day at the beach

The beaches in this area have a natural, unspoilt feel to them. They tend to be pebbly which makes the water crystal clear and perfect for snorkelling. There are sandy beaches down the coast near Polis. A variety of watersports are on offer at Argaka and further along the coast, from stand-up paddling to windsurfing as well as boat hire and boat tours.

Natural history museum in Pomos

In this little museum you can see many minerals and fossils from across Cyprus, as well as displays about the wildlife on the island, focussing on the habitats of Paphos Forest and Larnaca’s Salt Lake. There is also a large collection of stuffed migratory birds.

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.

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.

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.

Golf, tennis or spa?

The Minthis resort in the hills (about 50 minutes by car) has an 18-hole golf course, tennis courts for hire, and a wellness spa.

Polis town

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

Hop On-Hop Off bus excursion

The ever popular way to explore somewhere at your own pace. The tour of Paphos lasts 60 minutes and stops at the main points of interest around the town, including the Tombs of the Kings, St Paul’s Pillar, Paphos Old Town and the Archaeological Museum.

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.

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.
