Welcome to Ammochostos Region

The region has more to offer than just beach, though. The peninsula of Cape Greco has easy walking and cycling trails across limestone cliffs to rock formations and sea caves, and the potato-growing countryside around the Kokkinohoria villages, just inland from Paralimni, allows a peek at a more rural side of life.
