  • Went here both on an organised 4x4 safari, visiting Latchi, Lara Beach and Aphrodites Bath. Great day out and throughly enjoyable - especially seeing the turtle hatchlings in the conservation station ...  more »
  • The Akamas peninsula is beautiful. So many beautiful spots. We did not book any tours as we did not want to be packed with other tourists. We like to do our own things at our own space. The first time...  more »
  • Our family of 5 took a 2 wheel drive Toyota Corolla around the peninsula. We met another hapless family in a 2 wheel drive hire car and in convoy gave the undercarriages of our respective cars a reall...  more »

  • Fantastic place. As deserted as you can get these days. Had the whole sandy beach to ourselves this morning. Sea calm and shallow ,great for swimming and snorkeling. Go before end of September though if you want to see turtles. Enjoy the drive out as well !
  • I did the Aphrodite Trail with my teenage son. We started from Aphrodite Baths nice and early (about 7am) before the heat kicked in. Steady walk to the top of the hill overlooking the coast and the Blue Lagoon. Hard work but very rewarding when you get to the top. The route back gives you a sea view all the way but is steep and has a loose surface in places. Bring plenty of water because although there are some springs the signs say you shouldn't drink the water.
  • A must to see. Hire a 4x4 and you can get to to see more of Akamas that every day cars can't get to. The beaches are clean and un spoilt as many people don't choose to stop and savour the beauty that's there. Nice place to go and leave the rat race behind for a day.
  • You must not miss this beautiful fascinating natural reserve. It's totally worth the journey on the bumpy and dusty roads. Make sure you have a 4x4 to get there and just get spoilt with choice of natural paths, beaches and more. I will never forget the hours spent at Lara beach!
  • Visited by quad. Most of the park is out of reach by car. Very dry and desolate in summer but there are some gems to be found. Just be careful not to venture into the old war zone!
