Cyprus Road Trip #2: Paphos - Coast to Coast

Published 25th of May, 2019

It's time for another road trip! This time we are going Coast to Coast, from Paphos, to Agios Georgios, and across the island to Latsi and the Baths of Aphrodite. We are also stopping at lots of fun locations on the way, so buckle your seatbelts and let's get started!

On The Way To Coral Bay

We start once again at The Mall, and head off to Coral Bay. I should point out that this blog is a summary of the eBook we have written. That contains nearly 150 pages and there is no way I am going to reproduce all of it here. The purpose of the eBook is so that you can download it from Amazon and keep it with you as you follow the route. You won't have to worry about losing your internet connection. The purpose of this blog is to show you where the eBook will take you. The book itself has plenty of maps, and photographs of relevant junctions etc, so you won't get lost.

On this road trip we go from coast to coast, visiting beaches, villages and places of interest along the way. So naturally we go to Coral Bay.

Beside The Seaside

Shipwreck

Sea Caves

Chrysochou

Chrysochou lies nestled between Goudi and Polis, on the North West Coast of Cyprus. From the B7, where you will most likely have seen it, it is notable for the well preserved mosque that dominates its skyline. But Chrysochou has other points of interest, and a few surprises should your curiosity entice you to explore, including a fully restored water mill!
