Cape Greco, also known as Cavo Greco is a small peninsula located 7 km east of Ayia Napa. It has been designated as a national forest park with unique flora and fauna and is part of the Natura 2000 European network of protected areas.
Cape Greko is a relatively unspoilt area which you can explore on foot following one of the many hiking trails or by bike using the bicycle track. If you want to get some rest you can have a picnic and enjoy the rich flora and fauna of the area. You may see foxes or hares and over 80 species of birds. The sealife of the area is also rich so if you like snorkeling and scuba diving you are at the right place. Fishing is also a way to spend your time if you prefer less tiring activities.
The lovely small chapel of Saints Anargyroi found in the area is the place many couples choose to get married due to its incredible location. If you follow the stairs that are right next to the church you will find a hermit's sea cave where you can swim. Also, at the headland of Cape Greco there is a lighthouse and the ruins of an ancient temple devoted to Aphrodite. At the eastern edge of the park is Konnos Bay, a breathtaking beautiful beach with crystal clear waters fringed by pine trees where you can do watersports such as parasailing and jet-skiing.
Cape Greco is, out of doubt, a must place to visit during your time in Cyprus.
