Agia Marina Reservoir

Published 19th of November, 2019

Agia Marina is a small, picturesque village to the east of Argaka on the Polis coast.It's farms are irrigated by the nearby reservoir, and as we were in the area we decided to take a look at it...

Nice View!


They say that getting there is half the fun and that is certainly the case with Agia Marina Reservoir. We approached from Polis and turned right when we reached the school. After that we were basically sticking to the main road, though if you plan on visiting I suggest you look at the map (see link below).

Good Road


The road to the reservoir is suitable for all vehicles. If you are planning on exploring further into the woods though, a 4x4 is definitely recommended.

Distant Dam


As we approached the dam we could see it peeping through the trees. The reservoir is one of the smaller ones in the paphos region. Consequently it empties and fills fairly frequently, compared to, say, the Asprokremmos. I don't think you will get vendors selling snacks here each time the waters break.

This Ol' House


There is an old, abandoned house by the dam. I presume it used to be a forestry station.

Class of 65


I presume the building was built in 1965. It bears the seal of ROC on it's wall. I wonder if that is when the dam was constructed? I could find very little information about it online.

Evretou Reservoir Is Full!

She took her time, but Evretou Reservoir is now full! On a glorious, sunny Friday morning, I took my camera out to record the moment, and Evretou didn't disappoint. It has taken me a long time to whittle down the pictures I took for this blog, but here are a selection of the best.

Kouris Reservoir

We've neglected the dams for a while. They've overflowed, and now the waters are subsiding, ever so slightly. But what of the reservoirs further afield? Kouris has a church which is nearly submerged when it is full. So we thought we better photographed this semi-submerged church while it is still semi-submerged.

Asprokremmos Dam Revisited

The Asprokremmos Dam first started to overflow over a week ago. We filmed it at the time, but vowed to return once it had got into full swing...

Argaka Dam

The subject of litter often crops up in discussions on the Paphos Life forum. Things are improving, but there is definitely a long way to go. So it is with great pleasure that we are able to report that on a recent visit to Argaka Dam, we witnessed first hand how school children from the ISOP are helping to keep the area tidy.
