Pachyammos Seascapes

Published 4th of October, 2020

On Independence Day we visited Pachyammos Village Beach, with a view to doing some snorkelling. Unfortunately, the winds cut up a bit rough, so we decided to take some pictures and film instead.

No More Portaloos


Pachyammos lies to the east of Pomos, along the northern coast from Polis.

It is a lovely part of the island, and well worth a visit. The locals now consider the beach too cold for swimming and sunbathing, though to us it is still lovely. In the summer time there are portaloos along the edge of the beach, but they have been removed now.

Surf's Up


There were definitely plenty of waves here today. When we first moved to Cyprus, I went body boarding on a beach like this, in similar conditions. I got completely spanked. The sea threw me head-first into a bank of large pebbles and I ended up with a bloody face and a black eye. It wasn't the size of the waves, but their sheer power. So if you fancy a bit of body boarding, be careful.

No Fishing Today


Normally we would expect to see a fisherman or two on those rocks. Not today though.


I left Alex, who was busy collecting shells and taking close-ups, to climb up onto the rocks. I wanted to get some pictures of waves crashing against the cliffs.

Is The Film Better Than The Blog?

Before we show any more pictures we thought we should include the film, so that people averse to clicking on new pages will at least get to see it. There are still another four pages of pictures, though. So don't go away!

We hadn't intended doing any recording, so didn't have a tripod or our decent camera. So forgive the occasional wobble.

And turn the sound up, as we include a nice chill-out soundtrack, perfect for a sunday afternoon.

Polis Beaches Part 2

In this report we originally planned on showing you the beaches from Kato Pyrgos to Polis. However, there were so many that we have had to split it in two, so join us as we travel from Kato Pyrgos to the outskirts of Pomos. In our next blog we will continue the journey to Polis.

The Pomos Coast

Pomos is quite a trip from Paphos, but it is most definitely worth it. We were up that way to visit some abandoned villages and overflowing reservoirs this week, but stopped to take in the coast along the way. The countryside up there is breathtaking, and well worth a visit. Here's a short selection of what to expect.

Stormy Seas

Paphos took a bit of a battering over Christmas. The storms were relentless and nature put on a display the match of any New Year's Eve pyrotechnics. Once the dust had settled, we took our cameras out for a spin. This is the blog of the film we published a couple of days ago...

More Stormy Seas

We had hoped to have some Epiphany Day Celebration photos to show you today. Unfortunately, the wind cooked up a storm and the celebrations had to be cancelled for safety reasons, though they did have a scaled-down version at the port. When life throws you lemons, make lemonade, we say. So we took some pictures of the wind to show you instead...
