Akamas Peninsula National Park

The Akamas Peninsula,  in the far west of Cyprus at its most westerly point,  is an area of outstanding natural beauty and the treks provide stunning scenery of wide sandy bays, deep gorges and a wild landscape. We trekked along the coast to Cape Arnaoutis  and then took the challenging trek up the Aphrodite nature trail to the rocky table-top on the Akamas, known as Moutti tis Sotiras. It’s well worth the effort as the reward is probably one of the most breathtaking views on the island, across the blue lagoons to Cape Arnaoutis at the end of the peninsula.  The Akamas Peninsula is an area of great biodiversity and ecological significance being home to 530 plant species, a third of the total for Cyprus, 126 of which are endemic to Cyprus. The variety of fauna is equally impressive - 168 birds, 12 mammals, 20 reptiles and 16 butterfly species.  We ended our day with a beer at one of the beach restaurants as we watched the sun lower in the sky.
