Detailed itinerary:

Discover the western region of the island and the roads less travelled, where hidden natural treasures and unexpected cultural discoveries unravel to paint a picture of an area that is both breathtaking and historically rich. 

A drive towards the small town of Polis Chrysochous will instantly transport you to a peaceful oasis of seaside charm and beautiful scenery. 

Just a stone’s throw away is the traditional fishing village of Latchi, famous for its fresh fish that travels from the fisherman’s net, straight into the kitchens of the waterfront taverns, where visitors and locals alike enjoy it in a traditional ‘meze’ meal.

A boat trip from Latchi will take you into the heart of rocky coves, and you will not be able to resist plunging into the cooling turquoise waters for a dip, whilst at the nearby Baths of Aphrodite, legend tells that the Ancient Greek Goddess of Love and Beauty used to do the same, many centuries ago. 

Her grotto is surrounded by an idyllic, lush landscape and walking trail dotted with fragrant flowers and herbs, and it is here that she met her lover, Adonis.

As you move higher inland, you will discover a winding labyrinth of villages dotted across the Laona Plateau, including Kathikas, Kritou Terra and Arodes. 

Thereafter, the sprawling, untamed natural beauty of the Akamas National Forest Park stretches all the way to the serene area of Pomos. 

There, the stunning Avakas Gorge leaves visitors in awe as it etches its way through the rugged countryside. 

The natural blessings of the area continue still with untouched beaches, whose pristine sands are secluded and far from the noise and the crowds.

As sunset fades to welcome the stars, a drive out towards Pomos in the eveningreveals panoramic views and the sight of endless twinkling village lights. 

A selection of coastal establishments offers drinking with unparalleled views as the perfect way to end this romantic route.
