Latchi, lying on the North West coast of Cyprus, is a large, traditional Turkish-Cypriot village (or small town), which very successfully combines being a bustling, working fishing harbour, and a popular – and exceptionally quiet and peaceful family holiday destination. Less than 15 miles from the bustling town of Paphos , with its cosmopolitan crowd and excellent amenities (and its international airport), Latchi lies on a fertile, rocky plain between the mountains and the Mediterranean – offering stunning, romantic views in all directions, and is surrounded by citrus, pistachio and olive groves, vineyards and a typically evocative Cypriot landscape.
Latchi in Cyprus, a picturesque fishing village which stretches 3km along the North West coast of the Island and lies on the edge of the beautiful Akamas National Park.
The pretty harbour offers a number of excellent fresh fish tavernas that have turned out to be famous across the Island. The coastal road separates the clear blue sea, pretty shoreline and local amenities from the surrounding lush green countryside. At the harbour, sit back and enjoy a seafood meal in one of the harbour side tavernas and watch the boats come and go.
There are several beaches in Latchi which are perfect for swimming. They are covered with fine sand. Sunbeds and parasols are available to hire.

Paphos is now listed by UNESCO as a cultural and natural treasure. Visitors flock to Cyprus, and Paphos every year to enjoy the beautiful sunny weather, the spectacular scenery, and incredible cuisine. Throw in the various museums, historical churches, and park attractions and you’ve got the ideal holiday spot.
Paphos is basically divided into two sections. The upper area is the commercial centre and the lower region is home to the majority of the archaeological sites, taverns, and hotels, which are situated on a long coastal strip.
The city itself is located right on the sea, the harbour is a stunning little place to meander with the first thing to mention being its restaurants. There are lots of places to eat at Paphos harbour, and for those that like the sound of a real romantic Mediterranean meal the open air fish restaurants are happy to cook up special dinners for diners with a real play on Cypriot culture. The Poseidonas is in a particularly special location with seating right next to the water and further seating which overlooks the harbour.
For further atmosphere and delight, Paphos harbour has delightful boat cruises where visitors can view the sea life when taking a trip on glass bottomed boats, which can last anything from 30 minutes to a few hours. For longer trips, most of the larger sized boats like the converted ferry ‘Wave Dancer’, have seating area’s and sun loungers which makes for a relaxing half or full day, with most of the boats offering on board food and beverages.
