  • Well worth a visit for the views and a photo opportunity it's not far from Ayia Napa or Proteras. It's a bit random to find as it's next to some sort of rubbish dump!  more »
  • Nice view and landscapes, you can go to Canyon, but if you don't rent a 4x4 car or ATV you have to walk to it. The view from Monument of peace hill it's breathtaking, you have to go there.  more »
  • Wild and unspoilt. Easy access by vehicle and on foot. Excellent walking all around the area. (Be careful about footwear choice as terrain can be very challenging)  more »

  • 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 :)
