    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

    Beautiful hike that is well worth the visit! You can easily go from the parking spot up to a point in gorge and back along the defined path with relative ease. DO NOT go with flip flops, you will have a very bad time. Wear good shoes that you don't mind getting wet as you will need to walk over wet slippery rocks. Please note that there is no defined trail to hike the whole gorge from beginning to end. Should you choose to hike the whole gorge you need to be in a good physical condition. Bring water and snacks. Be prepared to climb over boulders and fallen trees, and meet mountain goats and snakes.

    Had a very nice time hiking there in late June. The place looks beautiful and there are lots of things to see. Make sure to bring a camera

    Avakas Gorge is a great place to go for a walk and to get some shade from the Cypriot sunshine. It starts as an easy walk and gets more adventurous as you ascend the gorge with many boulders to climb over, many of which are very slippery.

    Beautiful part of Akamas peninsula, not as hard to walk as I imagined. The path is clearly marked and there is a small BBQ area at the beginning of it. You might get wet while crossing the stream, so be prepared for that.
