Polis Introduction

Polis is a small town on the north west of Cyprus forty-five minutes from Paphos Airport. It is a quiet resort close to the Akamas Peninsula, a nature reserve noted for its beauty. Surrounded by vineyards and citrus groves, the locals are not wholly dependent on the tourist industry for their livelihoods and in consequence the area has not been marred by over development. As there are no discos or clubs, nightlife is relaxed and there are many bars and restaurants where you can enjoy your evenings. A Polis holiday offers many active leisure pursuits both in and out of the water.

Why Go To Polis?

Polis is an attractive town close to the place where the Greek Goddess of Love, Aphrodite, is said to have dallied with her beloved Adonis. It is a place that attracts nature, rather than beach, lovers as the Akamas Peninsula Nature Park is close by. Those who are keen on hiking, cycling or horse riding, golf or water sports will be pleased with the provision of such pursuits in Polis.

A Polis holiday appeals to the more energetic visitor. Those who enjoy an active holiday both in and out of the water will find plenty to occupy them in Polis. Couples of all ages, particularly those with an interest in history, enjoy the ancient sites in the area. Golfers have a choice of excellent courses.

When To Go To Polis

The summer season begins in April when the temperature is a pleasant seventy degrees. This can soar to the high eighties from June until September. Winters are pleasant at sea level but remember that winter is the rainy season and there can be snow in the mountains.

Polis - The Place

Polis is a small town on the far west of Cyprus on the edge of the Akamas Peninsula. This is a nature reserve and a protected area where the famous Baths of Aphrodite are found. The town is surrounded by the Troodos Mountains and all around it are the verdant citrus groves and the vineyards.

It is a quiet town on Chrysochous Bay which has retained its traditional charm, where locals still rely on agriculture and fishing for their living. There are many scenic walking trails in the Akamas Peninsula offering different levels of exertion. The Aphrodite trail climbs to the highest point of the peninsula, to an altitude of three hundred and seventy metres. The views from the top are stunning.

The busy little port of Latchi is a few kilometres further west and here you can enjoy a number of water sports as well as boating trips along the coast to the peninsula.
Polis offers many leisure activities including hiking, golf, cycling, horse riding and water sports.

A Polis holiday offers a guarantee of summer sun with a variety of leisure activities in a charming town.

Polis Nightlife

Polis nightlife can only be described as understated. Although there are bars and restaurants, there are no discos and clubs. Once a week, the Liquid Lounge has a musician who plays a variety of music on an acoustic guitar. Those who wish for lively entertainment would need to take a thirty minute drive to Paphos where there are ample opportunities for dancing until dawn.

Polis Shopping

Polis has a number of shops providing holiday essentials as well as gifts and souvenirs. Paphos is the nearest large town with a good commercial centre. Cyprus excels in handcrafted goods and the government have recognised the value of this by creating the Cyprus Handicraft Service. There are a number of official shops around the island. There are of course many more unofficial shops in all resorts selling good quality goods that are reasonably priced. Popular gifts and holiday mementoes are the embroidered linens, the Lefkara lace and ceramic pots.

Polis Eating

The restaurants of Polis serve a variety of dishes catering for most tastes. Fish features prominently on the menus with calamari, red mullet and sea bass being particularly popular. The nearby fishing port of Latchi is renowned for its wonderful tavernas serving traditional food.

Halloumi, a cheese made from goat and sheep’s milk is an island speciality. It is often served grilled and served as an appetiser. The Cypriot equivalent of the Spanish tapas is mezze and it is a good way to sample the variety of local food.

Local wines are tasty and inexpensive.
