  • We liked it. It's very hot in the summer season, but once wen you are in the gorge, it's not so hot. There are a lot of slippery stones, so be careful. We have seen people with sandals and flip-flops....  more »
  • Avakas Gorge is a stunning place to visit. We left off at 7:30am and arrive by 8:30am which was great as the sun wasn't too unbearable. Decent hiking footwear is a must if you are planning to scramble...  more »
  • Beautiful route for a three-hour walk. I advise you not to buy a car/buggy, and walk from the coast through the mountains and to the Canyon. Incredibly beautiful route

  • Loved every minute at Avakas Gorge. I was my in walking gear but had knee length shorts and t-shirt on. In mid august I should have known better and put insert repellent on, but I didn't and received bits. Even so it doesn't stop me doing all again to enjoy it's magnificent views.
  • Interesting gorge! You can safely spend in it half a day. Difficulty level is not very big, but it's better to use normal trekking shoes and stock up bottles of water. When moving deeper into the gorge, everyone chooses when to stop and go back. If you have free time and a personal car, you can come here in the morning, go through the gorge, or at least part of it, then go to the local tavern near the parking lot on the dais, and by the evening will go down to the coast and meet the sunset on the beach.
  • This gorge is pretty impressive! We went there late in the afternoon which is the best time in my opinion, as the sun sits a bit lower, so it is less warm and the light is generally prettier for photos. There is no facilities for water in case you get thirsty, so I would advise to take your own water with you, as there is a 30 minute walk to the interesting bits. It is possible to drive quite close by car, but not every car would cope with the terrain, so keep that in mind. That gorge is really long, but after a while it gets quite dark and harder to walk, so it is up to you to decide how far you will take it. All in all it is a very interesting location and quite impressive to see!
  • Possibly the most beautiful part of Cyprus. I would highly recommend this. Take water, it was very dusty also you can drive Down the dust road all the way to the car park no problem (just keep going, with a W/C) we timed the walk so that it ended slightly before sunset and got to watch a beautiful setting sun over the deserted beach. What a lovely end to a day. The walks about 2hrs.
  • Excellent views. Typical Mediterranean gorge although unique in Cyprus.
