Polis, North Akamas
Polis/Latchi Slideshow


Polis Chrysochous is built on the northwest coast of Cyprus, near the Akamas peninsula with its renowned Baths of Aphrodite. The whole Polis area is blessed by nature with the beauties of the mountains, the sea & the valley. Its seas are clean & warm with extensive sandy beaches.

The scenic beauty of the area is spectacular,from the coastal cliffs of Cape Pomos to the pine & cedar forests of the Paphos mountains. Dotted with citrus groves, overlooking turquoise seas, Polis is the perfect base, offering easy access to the varied landscapes of rocky promontories, lush meadows, rugged forests, sleepy monasteries & quiet beaches comprising the largely unspoiled western region of Cyprus.

Polis looks across Chrysochou Bay to the Akamas Peninsula, a nature conservation area steeped in mythological legends.

The surrounding coastal & mountain villages offer authentic Cypriot hospitality, culture & cuisine, while unique flora & fauna abound.
