The Akamas Jeep Safari takes you off-road, exploring hidden gems of the area that are tricky to access with a standard hire car. Setting off from the stunning Petra tou Romiou, the mythical birthplace of Aphrodite, you continue to the Akamas peninsula with amazing views of the breathtaking Akamas Gorge, then on to Lara Bay, breeding ground of the rare Green Turtles. Other highlights of the tour include the Baths of Aphrodite and the botanical gardens.
2 – Scuba diving and water sports
Cyprus is well known for being one of the most popular destinations for divers. With crystal clear water, at a pleasant temperature, it’s a wonderful diving location, and it’s a great place for learners too, with many diving schools all around the coast offering expert tuition. Discovering the world underwater is just amazing, with rich marine life, sea caves, and shipwrecks to explore. There are plenty of other water sports to enjoy too, with jetskis and pedaloes for hire, parasailing and banana boat experiences, and much more.
