Some of the most beautiful and secluded beaches are on the west-coast of Cyprus.

For example, those at Latchi and Polis on the edge of the Akamas Peninsula are a must to visit.

Lara Bay is known locally as Lara Beach and Turtle Beach. This is where the endangered loggerhead and green turtles lay their eggs.

The area is very beautiful with a very rugged landscape so it’s advisable to use a 4×4 vehicle if you travel to the Akamas Peninsula.  On your way visit the legendary Baths of Aphrodite and Lara Bay widely known as the breeding ground of the Greenback Turtle (endangered turtles).

Then onto the northwest peninsula, to the coastal beauty of Chrysochou Bay. Rest a while and bathe in the tranquil waters.
