Polis holidays 2021
Overlooking gorgeous Chrysochous Bay on the northwestern coast of Cyprus, the peaceful little resort of Polis is the perfect spot for a quiet holiday in the sun. Relaxed and laid-back, it has also got lots of wonderfully unspoilt beaches (including some turtle nesting sites), plus fantastic opportunities for water sports in the nearby harbour town of Latchi. Polis sits on the edge of the stunning Akamas peninsula nature reserve, which is ideal for hiking and mountain biking. You could also explore the spectacular Troodos mountains, home to some marvellous painted churches and some charming, traditional villages. If you’re looking for some nightlife action, a 45-minute drive will bring you to the bustling resort of Paphos.

Your guide to Polis holidays
Polis is an idyllic destination if you’re looking for peace, quiet and plenty of sunshine. You can explore the area’s lovely beaches, many of which are remote and unspoilt, enjoy some beautiful hikes through the surrounding hills, and tuck into some delicious Cypriot food at the local restaurants. Some of the best walks are in the nearby Akamas nature reserve, which is home to the Bath of Aphrodite – the pool where the goddess of love bathed, according to legend. The adjoining town of Latchi, a fishing village with a harbour and several beaches, has plenty of opportunities for water sports. Polis is also a great base for exploring the magnificent Troodos mountains, where you can visit traditional villages and the exquisite painted churches (collectively designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site).
The main beach in Polis is a golden curve of sand, which shelves gently into crystal-clear waters. Ideal for families with young children, it has plenty of facilities including sunbeds and a few beach cafés and bars. There is another, larger, beach at nearby Latchi, where you can rent boats and diving equipment or, if you prefer, take a diving course or book an organised diving trip. If you’re in search of seclusion, there are several smaller beaches dotting this beautiful and largely unspoilt bay. If you’re lucky, you might spot the turtles that nest on the remoter stretches of this coast: there is a conservation centre and nesting site on Lara Bay, home to some of the area's wildest and most beautiful beaches.
