From Simou to Evretou Village, Summer 2022


The village of Evretou was abandoned after the invasion of 1974. The Turkish Cypriots living there were relocated to the North. Later, the valley was dammed, to form the Evretou Reservoir. The village now lies in ruins, save for a maintained mosque. When the reservoir is nearly full, the village is inaccessible, as the access road is under water. At the moment though, you can drive to it.

It is a popular destination with the fishing crowd. If you go here to do a spot, please, please take your rubbish home with you. There is far too much of it dumped around the place by lazy fishermen who really should know better.
