Tsada The Scenic Way

Published 4th of January, 2018

The usual way to get to Tsada from Paphos is to drive straight up the B7. Occasionally though, we prefer to take a scenic route. There are some nice rock formations along the way too, so we decided it would be a perfect candidate for a blog. It's also worth knowing that you don't have to rely on the B7 to get you up that hill!

The route is fun, yet doable in any car. You don't actually go off-road, but you come pretty close.

Great Place To Start

We start our journey outside St Michael's Hospice, in Mesa Chorio. If you don't know where that is, then start off at Paphos Home Market, and head for the International School of Paphos. Drive past that into Mesa Chorio, and you will soon be here. You need to continue up that hill.

Mesa Chorio

This is the most direct route. You can also start at the Paps Crossroads on the B7 and come into Mesa Chorio that way. Follow the sign to Armou when you get to it.

If you came from Paps, you will be coming down the road to the left here. Continue following the road up the hill. Eventually you will get to another junction where you turn right.

The Garden of Memories

Back in June we were approached by Geoff Eccleston. He wanted help creating the online presence of a charitable drive he was organising for the St Michael's Hospice. The aim was to build a peaceful oasis for their residents and visitors to relax in. The appeal is now well under way, and construction of the Garden began some time ago. They are still short of their financial target though, and need money for ongoing maintenance and a wheelchair ramp. With that in mind we thought we would do a blog showing you how far the project has already come. It would be great if you could dig your hands into your pockets and help them hit their total, but even if you can't, have a look at the blog and see what is possible if a group of people put their minds to it...

Clean Up Paphos!

Rubbish has long been an issue in the region of Paphos. While fly-tipping no longer occurs on every hillside corner, it is still a big problem. In the last few years however, a number of Green Points have been set up throughout Paphos. The only trouble is, very few people seem to know about them. So we decided to track them all down, and show you what to expect when you visit. If you want the rubbish situation in Paphos to improve, it is in your own interests to use these places. We appreciate that a tour of recycling points won't make scintilating viewing, so we took the scenic route to bring you some pictures of the countryside too...

Ezousa Washout

On our numerous visits to the dam over the last few days, we have also taken the opportunity to explore the countryside between the Asprokremmos and Polemi.

Would I rescue some German tourists? The short answers are badly, ish, no and yes. For a more in-depth discussion, read on.
