Akamas Sunshine

Published 22nd of April, 2019

The sun shone brightly this morning, so we took the opportunity to go for a drive on the Akamas. There's been a lot of rain, but as a result of this, the Akamas is looking gorgeous at the moment...



We're on top of the Akamas today. We wanted to go fly a kite. The wind was up, and we had missed out on Green Monday, so this was to be our chance. Unfortunately, the kite came from Jumbo, and was as effective as you would expect. It refused to fly one iota, unlike the bag it came in. So it soon became a crumpled mess in the back of our car.

Towards Lara Bay


Still, the weather was lovely, so we took the opportunity to have a look round.

Good Roads


Considering all the rain we have had, the tracks on the Akamas were in surprisingly good condition. Perhaps they are being prepared for the forthcoming National Park? I can't help wonder what this will all look like when that is rolled out.

Mind you, it is easy to be too negative; when we visited the countryside around Ayia Napa last year, and notably Cape Greko, it didn't seem to be too badly impacted by tourism. And they were certainly more accessible to those who wanted to visit.

Polis View


On the other side of the road, the view down to Polis is a corker too. The skies were lovely and dust-free.


This track runs from Ineia to Smigies Picnic Spot.

The Akamas By Car

Nothing beats exploring the Akamas by car. A decent 4x4 can take you to places you would never normally find on foot, and the aircon can be a real life-saver. Some routes into the Akamas are bumpier than others. In this blog take a relatively bump free route which would suite the more cautious amongst you.
