- General info
Deep inside the north coast of the Akamas peninsula and some 12 km from Polis you will find the Blue Lagoon bay. A popular, large bay with an island in the middle. It's not a real beach but the water is amazing. No tourist infrastructure in the vicinity. Towards the south east you will see the peak known as “Moutti tis Sotiras”, which at an altitude of 370 m dominates the horizon. The trails of Aphrodite and Adonis pass through here. There is a dirt road from Aphrodite s baths but it is very difficult even for offroad vehicles. In summer you will have company by small boats.
The Blue Lagoon is a sheltered bay where the water tends to be warmer and in summer it’s up to 30 degrees. The sandy bottom gives the sea that magical turquoise colour. There’s a fair number of fish. There are lots of shells and other aquatic life on the sea bed. Explore the rocks around the edges and around the island.
The Blue Lagoon gets very popular in the summer, especially with boatloads of tourists from Latsi. Watch out for beginners trying to drive boats. Go early or late to avoid the crowd.
Caution: Don’t try to sail between the island and the land. There’s a shalow reef under the water.
