Get around[edit]

If you are looking to find an unspoilt side of Cyprus, head for the northwestern tip of the island where you will find Polis Chrysochous. Formerly a backpacker's destination in the 1980's, Polis has grown and developed but still retains it's quiet charm. Polis Chrysochous bay is spectacular and the Akamas peninsula which juts out from the end of the bay is wild and rugged offering outdoor lovers countless nature trails and rocky tracks to excite walkers and mountain bikers alike.

The mountain villages around the Polis area offer true Cypriot hospitality and authentic home cooking so get hold of a bicyle and explore! There are bikes available for hire in Polis and there is also a specialist mountain bike company in Polis that will take you on guided rides using high quality mountain bikes.
