Surf and Turf Akamas
Here's a combination 4 x 4 vehicle/ glass - bottom tour featuring a full day of adventurous sightseeing across western Cyprus' wild coastal frontier, the Akamas Peninsula. Get ready for non-stop thrills, some light trekking, lots of swimming and tons of fun as we slowly wind our way through forests, canyons, waterfalls and deserted beaches. We will see: 'Avagas' Gorge: a mini trek through Cyprus', where sheer walls of limestone rise some 30m above our heads to form a natural tunnel;
The Adonis Baths: a fantastic 10m waterfall with cool, fresh water plunge pools for a real "Escape-the-Heat" experience;
Fontana Amorosa: incredibly clear, turquoise waters, precipitous forested sea cliffs, and varied wildlife create a magic landscape with huge visual impact. By glass- bottom boat we tour the various coves and off-shore islands, look for sea turtles and sponges, and stop at the "bluest bay in Cyprus" for a relaxed swimming/snorkeling session;
The Baths of Aphrodite: the legendary fresh water pool, where some believe Aphrodite bathed in ancient times, awaits your inspection. You can splash the cold, clear spring water on your face to see if anything positive can happen; or just wash off the sweat and salt.
An experienced Excursion Leader accompanies each tour guide to guide you through the destinations and various stories behind them.
