Day Trip by Mini Bus to Akamas From Paphos

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    The first stop will be Avacas Gorge, a trekker’s paradise, offering spectacular views and a plethora of local flora and fauna, including the endangered centauria akamantis, an endemic plant found only in the gorge. The gorge itself is carved out of limestone rock rising as high as 30 meters and narrowing dramatically at one point.

    Our journey continues along the coastline towards Lara Bay, the nesting ground of two species of marine turtles, the green turtle (chelonia mydas) and the loggerhead turtle (caretta caretta). Learn about the Lara Turtle Conservation project, the life of these animals, and see their nests. If you are lucky, you might even see the baby turtles hatching (end of July to October). There will also be some time for swimming

    at this secluded paradise beach.

    Our next stop will be Saint George Church, where three early Christian basilicas and a bath were found and excavated in the 1950’s. There will be free time for lunch.

    On our way back to the hotels we will see the Sea Caves, the mysterious wave cut ‘sculpture’ formed out of the natural rocky shore and beach caves.

    A fun trip out with some nice sights. I especially enjoyed Avakas Gorge, but definitely make sure you have the right shoes! Even if you don't make it to the end (it gets tricky stepping over wet rocks) you still get some nice scenery. Unfortunately...More

    Dear Customer, Thank you for your good comments. Your remark regarding the Guide (Eng) is noted, however may re assure you that is not a matter of more information or explanation given to our Russian customers, but way of translating and speaking the corresponding language.
