Cape Greco

N 3457.719', E 343.917'
2013-09-07
Our rating: 7.60
Overall rating:

Cape Greco is located in the south-east corner of Cyprus. It is divided into two parts: military and national park. On the military side is the British base and access is closed. But the national park is worth a visit.

Actually, it's not a real park as there's not many trees there. But rare species of orchids, irises and crocuses as well as many ecotrails can be found. The maps can be downloaded here (the viewpoint is marked as a parking lot at the end of the cape).

We were interested in two places: the viewpoint and the caves (Palatia Sea Caves). The viewpoint is identified by a tall cliff and a gazebo on it. Many tourists come here by rented ATVs or buggies, as the cape is an ideal place for these types of vehicles. The caves are not hard to find, they are about a kilometer from the viewpoint at the side of Ayia Napa. Look out for cars parked nearby. We came by public transport, went up to the gazebo, then walked down to the sea and continued along the seashore to the caves. Look for a small path that is indicated by pyramids of stones as the surface consists of coral and volcanic stones. From the caves we went to the road and walked to the nearest bus stop.

Despite the fact that the majority of tourists come to the viewpoint and to the caves in the evening, you can come in the morning, as this time is better for photos. And don't forget to take water with you.

Getting there: Cape Greco is easily accessible from Ayia Napa and Protaras by buses ##101 (schedule, map) or 102 (schedule, map). Both buses pass very close to the viewpoint (Cape Greko stop). Ayia Napa can be reached by the Intercity bus from Larnaca (Finikoudes bus stop).
