Kyrenia and Akamas, beauties of Cyprus

Snapshots by Anna Marangou

Kyrenia is a city of more than three thousand years of Greek history and civilisation.

Kyrenia is a beautiful town noted for its historic harbour and castle on the northern coast of Cyprus, in the region occupied and illegally controlled by Turkey since July 1974 when Turkey invaded Cyprus.

A charming place, perfectly romantic. The sea of Kyrenia...

Karpasia, another beuatiful part of Cypurs in the region occupied and illegally controlled by Turkey since July 1974 when Turkey invaded Cyprus.

Karpasia blue clear waters of the Mediterranean sea.

Magnificent Karpasia coast, natural beauty with crystal water.

Akamas: The secrets of the island of Aphrodite, Cyprus, that most visitors never see.

The gorgeous Akamas peninsula, on the north western tip of the island has a unique beauty. This peninsula is named after Akamas, son of Theseus, who in Greek Mythology, landed here en route from the Trojan War, and is purported to be one of Aphrodite’s lovers.

Ακάμας. Βρίσκεται στο βορειοδυτικό τμήμα της Κύπρου και θεωρείται ως το πιο όμορφο τοπίο της Κύπρου. Στην περιοχή η οποία είναι ένας οικολογικός παράδεισος αναπτύσσονται διάφορα είδη φυτών και ειδών, μερικά των οποίων αναπτύσσονται μόνο στην Κύπρο.

Η ακτή με τα γαλάζια, καθαρά νερά της Μεσογείου προσελκύει πολλούς δύτες.

Στην περιοχή του Ακάμα έχουν οριστεί μια σειρά από εκπαιδευτικά μονοπάτια της φύσης. Εδώ μπορούμε να βρούμε ένα όμορφο φυσικό τοπίο και γραφικό μέρος με ωραία θέα στον περιβάλλοντα χώρο. Στα δάση της περιοχής υπάρχουν πάνω από 168 είδη πουλιών, 12 είδη θηλαστικών και 20 είδη εντόμων.

Hi Phivos! The water is teal blue! Beautiful! It's thrilling to know an island named Aphrodite, and I remember Theseus from finding his way through the labyrinth to slay the minotaur. Ah, Greek mythology! Best, Margaret
