Hike through Cape Greco National Forest Park, which features juniper-filled flatlands, copious sea caves, and a section of the European Long Distance Trail E4, which runs from Gibraltar. Spread across 385 hectares (950 acres) of rocky terrain, this park has 16 km (10 mi) of nature paths and extensive networks of cycling and horseback riding trails. There's a small church on site as well as a spot from which holy water runs, according to legend. Don't miss the sea caves, lined along the edges of cliffs, which reach up to 40 m (130 ft) in height.

  • This is a much larger area than what most people think. Between the caves and the Church (with Lookout Mountain in the middle), it is four miles to go. So be sure to have plenty of time.

  • 2 chairs and an umbrella was €7.50. Beautiful beach with tubing/boating attractions. Parking is much easier with a moto.
  • Very pretty and safe. Worth the trip. A lot to see and most of it so pretty I seems unreal.
  • The park is quite vast and has a number of attractions listed on Google maps - still, the viewpoint is the most spectacular! Though proximity of British military base brings certain restrictions in terms of taking pictures & access to some areas
  • Different from the sandy beaches of Agia Napa or Protaras, this rocky environment offeres many beautiful views from the cliff. There are nice and easy hiking paths, which lead you to the interesting sights on the way such as caves, natural bridge and small churches. Mediterranean plants alongside are pointed out and named in Greek, English and Latin. There is also a big picnick place with tables, toilets and running water. For those who want to taste some sea do not be discouraged: there are nice calm spots to go for a swim as well!
  • There are several places worth to visit: love "bridge", blue lagune, a couple of viewpoints and cavea. There is a bus stop so it's easy to get there by public transport, however if you want to get to the top to watch the beautiful sunsets, it's worth getting the car :)
