Explore the unspoilt wilderness of the West/Northwest Coast of Cyprus
In this tour you have the opportunity to explore the island's most unspoilt area - the peninsula of Akamas. Visit the famous Lara Bay - the Green Turtle's hatchery - swim in crystal clear virgin blue waters, visit the Baths of Aphrodite (the Goddess of Love and Beauty). This is a full day excursion, and a lot of it takes place in non-tarmac roads. Comfortable shoes are recommended. Don't forget your swimwear (we'll visit a folklore museum or go for wine tasting in case the weather does not allow for a swim).
