Overview

Introduction

Between Polis and the Baths of Aphrodite, Latchi is rather more a collection of fish tavernas and tourist shops than a village. A relaxing place to come to for freshly caught fish at a waterside restaurant after a walk in the peaceful Akamas or a swim at one of the nearby beaches.

There are souvenir shops and banks as well as tavernas and bars. Boat trips along the coast leave regularly from the harbour, and small motorboats can be rented for the day allowing one to explore the Akamas coastline. ‘Latchi Watersports’ are based here.  Latchi boasts a European Blue Flag Beach.

In the hills above Aphrodite’s Beach nestles the large and pretty village of Neohorio, the gateway to the Akamas National Park and the starting point for some excellent walks.

Diving in Latchi

The coastline off the Akamas is widely regarded as the most exciting diving area on Cyprus, with sites like St. George’s Island, The Blue Lagoon, Aphrodite’s Reef and the Garden of Eden. There are virtually no tides and currents, and the sea is comfortably warm all year (average temperature 62°F in January to 82°F in August). The Latchi Watersports centre offers a wide range of professionally taught courses and was recently awarded the prestigious 5 Star Gold Palm Resort designation by PADI. Tuition is available up to Assistant Instructor level.

For qualified divers, daily dives are organised in small groups to a variety of superb sites. Night dives and scooter-assisted dives to view the once almost extinct, but now recovering, Mediterranean turtle are also available. Diving equipment is available for hire.

Please note: Double check that your insurance provides cover for dives up to 18m or 40m. Take care not to fly within 24 hours of diving or solo cave diving. Latchi Watersports have additional accident cover (enquire locally).

Watersports

Small boat hire to explore the Akamas coastline is also available as is waterskiing, wakeboarding, windsurfing, sailing, parasailing, banana and tube rides. Tuition is available where necessary.

Claire joined us in 2005 after having spent 6 years in Lesbos running her own business teaching English, where she married a Greek. The economic crisis in Greece forced them to return to the UK. Alongside day to day reservations, Claire is also mother goose to our 30 or so overseas representatives in Greece and works very closely with Graeme, our overseas manager in Greece, to arrange for their interviewing and training. Understandably she loves Alonissos.
