Worth visiting Cape Greco, wonderful coastline but beware of terrible insect bites. We did a sunset stroll & were very badly bitten, use repellent before you venture out. more »
Went there in the evening, unfortunately it got dark real fast. So didn't get a chance to swim in the famous lagoon(( the place is really beautiful, it's so serene out there and the air is so good. If you like the nature, walks and fantastic sea views, it's a must when visiting Cyprus!
The water there was amazing. Really clear and really good for snorkeling or diving. You can see crabs hiding beneath the rocks and big groups of fish a little bit deeper (about 15m from the place you jump in the water).
