If You Go Down To The Woods Today...

Published 21st of December, 2016

If you have ever driven to the Blue Lagoon via the coastal road, you will have spent most of your time watching the track in front of you, as it is a somewhat precarious ride. This is a shame, because there is a little jewel in the woods above you, waiting to be found.

Start At Aphrodite's Pool


Begin your journey at Aphodite's Bath. If this is the first time you have visited the bath then don't worry, it's ok to be disappointed. The bath itself is a bit of a letdown. However, there are some lovely nature trails in the area, and if you do any of them then your journey will not have been wasted.

You need to head to the Blue Lagoon along the coast road. If you are driving, I wouldn't recommend anything other than a decent 4x4. If you are walking, pack plenty of water and make sure your camera is working.

At the point shown in the photo, take a right into the campsite, and follow the track pointing to the Blue Lagoon.

Can You Spot The Church?


As you navigate the road, you can be forgiven for missing the church, especially if you are driving. But there it is, towards the top left.

Close Up Of The Church


Thanks to the trusty zoom lens, we can see the church in more detail. Note the complete lack of any road to it.

First Route To The Church


If you continue down the road you will come to this narrow footpath veering left. You can take this route if you are on foot, if you fancy a more direct route and a scramble up the hill. We will continue down the road though.

A Small Shrine


This is almost directly below the church. I wonder if they are related?

Happy Halloween!

As it is Haloween and the spirits of the departed are set to walk the Earth, placated only by sweets and small denomination coins, we thought it the perfect time to pay a visit to some spooky Akamas sites. So sit back and enjoy our trip to a pre-Christian Burial Ground and a spooky old mine, with not a janitor in sight.

The Far Side of the Akamas

Last October when I had the weekend to myself, I resolved to do a geocache that had eluded me up until now, due to it's remoteness. Given that people were interested in the Akamas Church blog I posted a while back, I thought I would turn the photos I took into another blog...
