The charming and historic town of Akaki, near Nicosia is on the route of a fabulous and challenging safari in Cyprus. A visit to Akaki is sure to fulfill all the senses and excitements for an unforgettable vacation. The beautiful Cyprus mountains, the warm sea beaches, and the interesting history of the island itself are sure to enchant travelers of all ages. It has been said that a visit to Akaki is like stepping into another world, since there is something or another, aside from the sea, beaches, mountains and history in every corner of this picturesque Mediterranean coastal town.
One can see many different cultural aspects, as one drives through Nicosia, Paphos, Limassol, and Akaki to get to the other side of Cyprus. The three towns each have something unique about them. In Akaki, the cliffs and the sea are the main attractions for travelers, who come here to watch the sunset. In Nicosia, the sea is dotted with numerous luxury resorts, while in Paphos, the most notable landmark is the Engine Company Building, which is an architectural masterpiece. Limassol is the capital of Cyprus, and the other two towns, along with Akaki, make up the “Golden Triangle” of Cyprus tourism.
After a great day in the sun in the “Greece of the East,” it is time for a retreat to the calming waters of the sea or a cruise in the “blue sea.” If you have never been on a cruise ship, you will never know what you are missing. You might also take time to explore the small fishing villages along the coast of Nicosia and the historical sites of Akaki. These are only some of the things you will be able to do while in Cyprus, visiting the most famous sights and attractions there.
One of the things you can do on your trip to Akaki is to enjoy the beautiful weather. The warm, breezy summers are long gone, replaced by a sudden downpour that could pour down one day or stay over for a few days. It can be quite fun to spend the rainy day walking through the streets of Akaki with the wind blowing your face gently. You can spend the rest of the day exploring the surrounding area. Most people traveling to this region in the summer months prefer to travel by car or go on an all-inclusive vacation package, because driving in Cyprus is very dangerous during this time.
An all-inclusive vacation package includes airfare, stay in the chosen resort and a cruise or water tour around the area. There are a few must-see sites near Akaki, including the ruins of a Byzantine castle, the beautiful Botanical Garden, and the National Archaeological Museum. If you want to spend more time in the region, you can rent a car, go on a driving tour or take a day trip into the nearby towns of Paphos, Beyrouth and Famagusta. Any trip to the area will highlight the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape, which you can further appreciate while enjoying the amenities of your vehicle.
In addition to the traditional sights and sounds of the area, you can also make the most of the opportunities offered to you. If you want to take a luxury trip to Akaki, consider renting a car for the day, instead of boarding one of the small buses that are available. If you prefer walking, a one-day hike up the Mountian Way is the perfect way to end your trip to Akaki, as it gives you the chance to view some of the most beautiful scenery. Paphos is also home to many hotels, so it is easy to find somewhere to stay, without having to search for a hotel in Paphos. Another advantage of taking a one day trip into the region is that you get to explore both Paphos and Akaki at the same time.
