Following the Discovering Cyprus publications on the 44 beaches of Famagusta and the 33 beaches of Limassol, Andreas Papadopoulos has prepared a corresponding guide book for the beaches of Paphos, which will be presented with a photo exhibition on June 17th 2017, at the Port of Paphos.
Starting from the “Petra tou Romiou” and ending at “Kato Pyrgos”, the book-guide presents all the interesting points of the 145 km shoreline with full descriptions. The text contains information about the morphological characteristics of each beach, its suitability for children and the disabled, the services offered as well as access instructions. Each point described is accompanied by representative photos taken from above and from ground level, giving a more complete picture to the reader.
The book also provides information on the four main coastal archaeological sites, such as Palaipaphos (Kouklion), Nea Pafos (Kato Paphos), Tombs of the Kings and MAA-Palaiokastro. It includes a large map of the coastal zone of Paphos, where all the beaches and points of interest are marked.
The book primarily highlights the beauty of district, but simultaneously informs the reader about all the treasures of the area he can visit and enjoy, including secret beaches, shipwrecks, sea caves and stunning rocks. Through the texts and the photographs, the wide range of beaches are revealed, from the shady, quiet sandy beaches to the wild, rocky and steep, with particular emphasis on those located on the magnificent Akamas’ peninsula.
The book will be released in three editions, English, Greek and Russian, and will be available in bookstores and kiosks. The presentation of the book will take place in front of the entrance of the Archaeological Park of Nea Paphos, next to Limanaki, on Saturday, June 17, 2017, at 20:00. The event, which is open to the public, will feature representative photos of the beaches and the coastline of the Paphos province, which will be displayed on the coastal pedestrian port of the port from the day of its presentation until June 30th 2017. The opening of the exhibition and the presentation of the book will be held by the Honorable Minister of Energy, Commerce, Industry and Tourism Mr. George Lakkotropis.
