Polis and Latchi lie on the long, north-western curve of Cyprus, really close to the serene green Akamas Peninsula. Hike into the hills to marvel at the wild coastline that fades into superb sun-glazed waters. It’s home to the cool cavern of the Baths of Aphrodite, too.
A bay of beauty
The seafront wraps around Chrysochou Bay, with a band of coves where you can laze around. You might even catch a scent of cool eucalyptus from the forests behind. With crystal-clear sea and sheltered waves, Polis and Latchi are prime spots for watersports – there are some great diving schools by Latchi Harbour.
