St Georges and Archaelogical Site Slideshow

Saint Georges & Archaelogical Site.

The picturesque church of Agios Georgios is located north of the Coral Bay developments and on the Roman town on Cape Dhrepano.

It overlooks a modest fishing harbour whilst across the road, a medieval chapel stands next to the entrance to an enormous sixth-century Byzantine basilica complex with extensive panels of geometric and animal floor mosaics. The animals depicted include an octopus, birds, fish, a turtle, crustacean and a snail.

Secluded swimming areas and beaches are found from the church by going south along the dirt track to the curve in the road down to Moudhalis.

Spurs off the main track lead to the area called White Cliffs where sculpted chalk formations offer good sun-bathing and conceal miniature sandy coves as far down as Manijin islet.
