Artemis Cynthia Complex – Paphos Cyprus

Polis to Pyrgos Cycling Route

The route begins in Polis and travels along the coast in a northeasterly direction to Pachyammos. It then does a little detour, climbing up into the mountains in a southerly direction in order to by-pass the Turkish enclave of Kokkines, after which it goes downhill to pick up the coastal road again to Pyrgos.

Difficulty rate: Easy and almost flat road with only one uphill past Kokkines. There are often strong onshore winds in the area, particularly in the afternoon. A street bike with at least 20 speeds is required.

Road condition: Good quality paved roads throughout.
