Overview

Take a wander through the ancient sea caves situated on Cyprus’ eastern coast, found along the Cape Greco (Cavo Greco) trail, which leads you through the caves before ultimately reaching the highest point of the cape that overlooks the sprawling Mediterranean Sea.

The trail, located a few kilometres away from the town centres of Ayia Napa and Protaras, is easily accessible by car or by the local bus route that runs a circular line from Paralimni and Ayia Napa.  

While hiking along the 4.8 kilometre trail, you will have the chance to take in stunning views of the Mediterranean while you duck into small sea caves and to observe an array of fauna, such as foxes, the Cyprus warblers, and hares.  

The landscape is lush with endemic plant species including the three-coloured chamomile plant, wild garlic and the Cyprus golden drop.

For the first two kilometres, the trail winds along the Konnos beaches, famous for their turquoise waters, and eventually takes an uphill turn towards the church of Ayioi Anargyroi which is located on a steep rock face above a sea cave.  

As you continue along the trail, you will reach the Kamara tou Koraka, a natural rock bridge.  

The trail then heads uphill towards the ruins of Aphrodite’s temple and a small pine forest.  

The estimated time to complete the trail is approximately two hours; it is rated as an easy trail.
