From Ezousa Valley To The Sea

Published 11th of March, 2017

The river Ezousa has carved a beautiful valley out of the lowlands to the east of Paphos. We return to Episkopi to see if it is possible to follow it to the sea in our trusty 4x4.

We Started Here

Previously we stood at this point and turned right, as we wrote about in another blog. Now however we turn left where the road crosses the valley towards Episkopi.

The Sea Is That Way

The first leg of the journey is very tricky at this time of year, as there are some huge puddles. Unless you have a truck or a large 4x4 I really wouldn't attempt it at the moment.

Track and River Merge

Once the puddles have been successfully navigated the road merges with the river. We stopped here because the local frogs were singing some very loud mating songs. Though we couldn't see any, we could hear them everywhere.

A Strange Castle

Now this was a surprise! As we emerged from the river, this was the scene that greeted us.

Looks Like A Prison

They obviously value their almond blossom a great deal, as it is protected by a huge fence.
