2. Lara Bay Turtle Conservation Station

On an isolated beach, the Lara Bay Turtle Conservation Station stands as a guardian of the region's green and loggerhead turtles. Every year, these magnificent creatures return to nest, and dedicated conservationists work tirelessly to protect the eggs and hatchlings. Beyond preservation efforts, the station plays a crucial role in educating the public about the challenges faced by these turtles. A visit to Lara Bay offers a unique opportunity to witness nature's marvels and contribute to the conservation of these fascinating reptiles.

3. Avakas Gorge Nature Trail

Nestled near Toxeftra Bay and adjacent to Akamas in Paphos province, the Avakas Gorge Nature Trail beckons nature enthusiasts along the route to Agio Georgios of Pegia. This untamed marvel unfolds a rich tapestry of wildlife, from pistachia and oleander to porcupines, hares, lizards, and frogs, amidst its vast flora. The gorge culminates in a perennially flowing stream, offering a scenic conclusion to its rugged terrain. While the challenging paths, slippery rocks, and potential landslides may present a debated difficulty level among hikers, the verdant ferns, wild figs, oak trees, and a profusion of wildflowers showcase nature's artistic touch in shaping Cyprus' geological canvas—a testament to its timeless beauty.
