Who wouldn’t want to live a summer full of adventure, exciting views, endless swims, unique flavours and memories that will stay etched in their brain forever? For many, summer means all of the above, and there’s even more a destination like Polis Chrysochous can offer!
Polis has long attracted local and foreign visitors, staying true to its principles, generously offering its natural beauty while its people win everyone over with their authentic Cypriot hospitality.
Away from the city and closer to nature, it is the perfect destination for those wanting to live the ultimate summer experience on our island.
Mythology says that the goddess Aphrodite rose from the waves near Petra tou Romiou (Aphrodite’s Rock) but her connection to the area does not stop there. Following nature trails, visitors can discover the little secrets of this unique place, including the imposing Avakas gorge. A dip in the crystal-clear waters of the much-photographed Blue Lagoon is a must, and the easiest way to access it is by boat.
The area’s clean waters and blue flag beaches are another good way to experience true summer holidays. With its well-known pier, Limni is definitely among the area’s must-see beaches.
At the quaint Latchi harbour, the beachside promenade is ideal for romantic walks by the sea, while traditional tavernas serve fresh fish and local delicacies. A beachside walk can lead to the traditional town square with its restored listed buildings, and end with some casual drinks at one of the beautiful local bars.
Apart from nature and picturesqueness, Polis Chrysochous also counts culture among its offerings. It would be a miss to skip the local Archaeological Museum of Marion – Arsinoe, or the Ayios Andronikos church and park. The municipality has also started works to upgrade the local archaeological sites which speak of the area’s rich past, with the aim of making them more accessible to the public.
Through its tourist campaign, Polis Chrysochous municipality invites the world to experience another incredible summer, exploring the rich nature and rare beauty of the area!
