Blue Lagoon (Akamas) tour from Paphos

60 reviews
The program includes two exciting trips: a bus trip and then a sea cruise on a ship. <br>We will see a unique natural landscape, which form sea caves. We will visit the local winery and taste the real Cypriot wine. We go to a small shady garden, where there is a grotto with a romantic name - the Bath of Aphrodite. <br>Another stop is the fishing village of Latchi, from whose port we will continue our journey by ship to the blue lagoon.

The views are great along this trail, and it is not very difficult. It's wonderful mid February and early spring with the many wild flowers around, cyclamens etc.

We really enjoyed this trail. We are a couple in early 60s and are not serious hikers so look for a pleasant walk rather than anything too challenging! And this walk gave us exactly that. It is not too taxing but gives amazing views over Latchi and beyond. Very peaceful as well. The various signs giving descriptions of some of the trees and bushes are interesting as well. We saw mountain goats which was nice. Only quibble is that the signposting of the route could be better. Basically there is a short route and a long route. We were trying to do the short route but at the point where the two routes depart there was no sign. We only found out what we’d done later when we used Google Maps! We then turned back and returned the way we’d come so didn’t complete the circular route. That is why my review says 4 stars rather than 5. Anyway, no problem really, the walk was delightful and is highly recommended. As a word of warning, we did it in October when temperature was about 25 degrees and some cloud was around. Would have been much harder work on a hotter day.

This is a beautiful walk with fantastic views over the national park and parts of the island. A gravel road will bring you to a pick nic site where you can park your car. The start is a tad steep but no real issue, the rest of the walk is very easy. It was beautiful and calm with spectacular views to the sea. Very enjoyable. The trails are marked and you will find arrows pointing you in the direction of the nature trail. You have the option to do the short or long loop. The long one took us 2 hours. Some of the signs are unfortunately broken and there were quite a few gun shells on the ground. We even found a hunting knife! (litter, thankfully is not a real problem) There are signs everywhere that hunting is prohibited but the evidence tells a different story. This is a nature reserve and the government should enforce the laws here! Also, a local was telling us afterwards that the government is encouraging developments for houses. I really hope this won't happen as this is an extremely beautiful part of Cyprus and it's equally important to preserve this part of the island to building housing/tourist developments.

Went today for a walk which was glorious and highly recommend. However there was a massive hunt with about 50 men in orange and lots of 4x4's with at least 4 dogs (seemingly well looked after) in the back of each car. Akams is a nature reserve and public area, so hunting does not seem to be the right choice for that area. Lots of signs to say no hunting yet the authorities have hunting days Sundays and Wednesdays. Nothing had a chance there today! Not sure we would have enjoyed our walk if hunt was actually in progress. Guns present too.

You need a 4x4 or off road vehicle to use the main tracks through the trail area but if you are walking the many trails available to see the varied nature and views on offer then sturdy boots and plenty of sun cream if coming in June / Later summer is a must. Enjoyed the tree lined respites on some of the trail from the heat and the cooling breeze through the trees, though the deafening sound of the local crickets can get a bit OTT at times! Well worth a visit if you want something manageable that you can enjoy for free.
