Akamas and Blue Lagoon
Safari Land Tours Itinerary
Duration of this safari tour is
approximately 8 - 9 hours and the tour will have a maximum of 10
travellers. Please note that our tours may vary at times to the
list below due to weather patterns and conditions of the day.
Pick up from your designated hotel and we make our way to our first stop
at Sea Caves. Here at Sea Caves we will see the shipwreck of Edro II, a
83 meter long, 2,517 ton freighter which ran aground in very stormy
weather in the Sea Caves area of Paphos between Coral Bay and St Georges
island on 8 December 2011. We will take in the spectacular views of this
wild coastline and you can take your pictures from here.
We visit the baths of Aphrodite's and hot or cold soft drinks are available here. Situated about 18 miles from the coastal town of Paphos, the natural cavern here features a caved shallow pool encompassed by ferns and a large fig tree which caters for the shade. A natural spring supplies the water to the pool. According to myth, Aphrodite would bathe in this pool and is where she first met her great love- Adonis. The waters here are said to hold special rejuvenating powers.
main highlight of the tour is the visit to the Blue Lagoon. You should not forget to bring towels
for this exhilarating water experience. The Blue lagoon is the most popular place of Akamas peninsular and thousands of people have visited it for its crystal blue shallow very warm waters. Blue Lagoon lies in this small bay and you can see all the way to the underlying sea bed surrounded by fish. The water in this area of the Akamas Peninsula is so inviting and refreshing you will want to swim all day long in this beautiful environment or go
snorkelling and look around you underwater for meters. Now we are off to visit the home of the Green and Loggerhead Turtles breeding grounds of Lara Bay where provisions are constantly being made for safe sites for the egg laying of these sea creatures.
Lara Bay and Beach. The sands are soft and golden, while the sea is crystal clear and clean. On the north-west coast of the island of Cyprus, is the extensive and often near-deserted sandy beach and one of the few remaining havens for loggerhead and green turtles to nest – so loungers and umbrellas and general sunbathers are not allowed. Monk seals also dwell in the sea caves off and around this peninsula. Experience the Cyprus coast as it was before the vigorous development that has enveloped much of the Cypriot waterfront. In this corner of the island, that includes the Akamas peninsula, with fantastic walks, the most beautiful and varied coastline and, in spring especially, a breathtaking plethora of flora. A 4×4 vehicle is necessary to reach this expansive and virtually deserted beach and peninsular.
Optional lunch is arranged for us all at the Lara Bay Tavern. As this is
an optional lunch it is not included in the Safari Tours cost. There is
a wide selection of bbq buffet and a food menu are available and payable
at your own cost.
Now we have wined and dined, we are off for a walk and hope we loose a few calories. The Gorge of Avacas found on the western tip of the Akamas Peninsula, this impressive gorge lies approximately 18 kilometres from the coastal town of Paphos. The trail leading through the gorge is roughly 2½k long with sheer rocks on both sides reaching up to 260 feet in height.
The narrowest point being 10 feet wide. Deep inside the gorge you will
encounter rare plants, flowers,
reptiles, immense cliffs and even wild mountain goats.
Time to head homeward bound and we take the coastal road back into Paphos.
Back to your hotel drop off. We hope you have had a very pleasant and
interesting day on our safari tour of Paphos and if you wish to book our
tour of Troodos Mountains, please ask the driver who will book you into
our next Safari Tour.
