The Cyprus Environment Centre is housed in the old village school indicating the value of this location for anyone interested in the natural environment and the habitat of the flora and fauna. Many organised walking and bird watching holidays are based in the Akamas, as it has such a variety of coastal paths or high level walks, all with spectacular views. A perfect location for either a restful or energetic break. There are 3 golf courses within easy reach. Tsada (Minthis Hills) is 30 minutes drive, Secret Valley and Aphrodite Hills Golf courses approximately 45 minutes drive. More

About the neighbourhood
Kritou Tera is ideally situated between Paphos (30 mins) Polis and Latchi (both 15 mins). Paphos airport is a mere 50 minute drive. The many attractions in Paphos town provide enough activities for several days! The famous mosaics and Tombs of the Kings are certainly a must but the scenic harbour and ancient fort will provide a stunning backdrop to a more leisurely break in one of the many harbour cafes and bars. Polis is a small town with many services and restaurants. Polis beach, has stunning views across the Akamas Peninsula, From it, a lovely board walk has been built along the beach to Prodhromi and Latchi, if you feel like some gentle exercise. Latchi has a pretty harbour, water sports and restaurants famous for their fish mezes.
Getting around
A car is necessary if you wish to stay here, as the village bus service only runs a couple of times a day. However, there are more regular services between Polis and Paphos, as well as to the other large towns such as Nicosia and Limassol.
