Latchi Village & the Akamas Peninsula

Only 36 km from Pafos and approximately 3 km from Polis on the north western coast is the quiet fishing village of Latchi. Situated along the pretty harbour are some of the best fish restaurants alongside the bars and cafes. This quaintly picturesque fishing village is where fanatics of fresh seafood should make their way.

In the past, carobs were shipped at the small port of Latchi. The old stone carob warehouses are all now restaurants, fish taverns and shops.

This is an excellent hot spot for Cyprus property, partly because of the new enlarged capacity Marina in the Latchi fishing harbour, as well as the community's proximity to the beautiful Akamas peninsula. Latchi has all the cycle rides, mountain walks, forests, beautiful beaches, traditional villages and wineries right on its doorstep.

The Blue Flag Beaches of Latchi

Fantastic sunsets are the norm at the larger sandier beaches to the west. The beaches to the north carry the EU blue flag award, are immaculately clean and are mainly covered with a fine shingle.

Water sports such as parasailing are available at Latchi harbour and you can take a hire boat to the Blue Lagoon and swim in the emerald green sea.

The unspoiled Akamas National Park with its fantastic landscape and views still attracts thousands of visitors who enjoy this area, only just over 3 kilometres from Latchi.
The nature trails in the Akamas National Park are ideal for biking, jogging and walking and also located here is a natural grotto called the Bath of Aphrodite where, according to legend, the goddess of Aphrodite used to have her beauty baths.

Latchi Village practically adjoins the Akamas Peninsula National Park

Polis Chrysochous

The small town of Polis Chrysochous is Latchi's neighbour to the east.
Somewhat larger than Latchi village, Polis has recently attracted a lot of attention British investors looking for property to buy in Cyprus, due to the region's growth potential brought on by the construction of the new motorway connecting it with Paphos and the rest of the island. Once construction of this road is complete, the journey time to Paphos will be cut to just half an hour and property prices are predicted to rise steeply.
