Enjoy the dramatic coastline of beautiful Cape Greko
This coastal walk connects Konnos Beach at the northern tip of Cape Greko park with Gliki Nero beach in Ayia Napa. The route is 10 km long on the rocky coast. Cape Greko park is a small park between the bustling beach resorts of Ayia Napa and Protaras. The itinerary (a stretch of it is on Aphrodite trail) goes by major attractions in the area including the group of sea caves in Agia Napa, the group of sea caves of Cape Greko (known as Palathkia 'ie Palaces), as well as Ammos Tou Kambouri beach, Kermia beach, Kamara tou Koraka natural arch and Agioi Anargyroi chapel (and adjacent cave). Cape Greko park is a good destination also for birdwatchers, especially during spring migration. The waters are usually very calm on the east side. In the hot season sea turtles visit the area to feed.
This walk is excellent all year round.
In summer we recommend to start the walk late in the afternoon. Temperatures are more comfortable and walkers can enjoy the sunset. We can provide headlamps for walks in the evening.
From Agia Napa, Protaras, Larnaca or Nicosia we go to Konnos beach, where travellers may have around 30 minutes time (or more as per agreement) to enjoy the scenery and possibly have a swim (while we complete our car arrangements for this linear walking trip).
The walk passes by a number of attractions including much of the east coast of Cape Greko and almost the whole of its south coast. Attractions included in this walk are Agioi Anargyroi chapel, Kamara tou Koraka natural arch, Cape Greko rock, Cape Greko Sea Caves, Agia Napa Sea caves and a couple of small coves such as Ammos tou Kambouri.
The trip ends at Gliki Nero beach in Agia Napa, from where we take the car back to the hotel (or to other agreed drop-off place).
Explorers may have a swim if there is available time (at any of a number of the covers on the walking route).
It should be especially noted that this is a trip that can be very pleasantly done also in summer. In summer we recommend to start relatively close to sunset.
