On A Clear Day...

Published 3rd of December, 2018

Saturday was the day after the storm, so we had some clearing up to do followed by a visit to Chrysochou Green Point. We couldn't help noticing how clear the skies were after the bad weather, so decided to take a few pictures on the way back...

To The Beach!

We thought we would start out our photo tour with a look at Polis Campsite. There were reports of a fire here a while ago, and other reports saying it was having a makeover. But when we got there, it looked just like it always used to. All the lovely Eucalyptus Trees were there, along with the beach restaurant, though this was closed for the winter.

We resisted the opportunity to have a quick swim. To be honest there was a bit of a chill in the air. Mind you, it is December...

New Breakwaters

We hadn't seen these breakwaters before. They are also putting some along the very dangerous stretch of coast near Chloraka and Kissonerga. It's about all they can do, because people still insist on ignoring all the danger signs. I think the Polis seas are a lot safer though. Mind you, I was bodyboarding two years ago just up the coast from here, and a very powerful wave tossed me head first into a gravel bank. This resulted in a lovely shiner which puzzled the locals.

Nice Clouds

The sky is rarely this clear. We had intended driving back to Polemi via Argaka and the outskirts of the forest. It would have taken a few hours but given us loads of nice pictures. However, I remember a had an important task to do back home, so we had to give that a miss.

Driving Home

So this was going to be a quick, one page blog on Polis Beach. But on the way back, I notice the open door light was lit on the car dashboard. So we pulled over to close all the doors. Naturally enough, I took some pictures too.

From Miliou To Theletra

While we were exploring the sulphur springs of Miliou a few weeks ago, we couldn't help but notice a village in the distance.

So we thought we would find a scenic route between the two locations...

The Church of the Prophet Elias

As you drive to Polis on the B7, past Miliou, you will see a sign pointing to a church. If your Greek is as basic as ours, you will need Google Translate to tell you that it is the Church of the Prophet Elias. This is good to know, because you won't be able to find it on the map. When you see how small the church is, you will understand why...
