Polis is the area of Cyprus about 10 miles north of Paphos to the coast north of that point. Polis area is still a relatively unspoilt part of Cyprus. It still retains a more relaxed way of life. It is within the Paphos District, but is very different to town of Paphos. Paphos was once a tiny fishing village which has been transformed in to a large tourist resort. Polis is regarded as the most scenic part of Cyprus
The town of Polis is is very different to Paphos, with its many paved streets and unspoilt character. The main pedestrianised area does have a some shops aimed at tourists, and of course lots of Cypriot places to eat. You will not find fast food joints or British style Pubs. There is a regular indoor market selling local meat and local fruit and vegetables, all at great prices. A very relaxing place to amble around the few shops or enjoy a light lunch or dinner.
The other main town in this area is Latchi. Again there are a few shops here for tourists, and a number of traditional tavernas and restaurants, mostly specialising in locally caught fish, all of which are next to the beach/quay. For those looking for water sports Latchi has a water sports centre, where you can hire a boat or even go diving. The rest of the area is made up of a number of villages with varying degrees of charm and reasons to visit.
Pomos is about 8 miles or so outside of Polis. It is a charming little village, with a number of restaurants. There is a small fishing harbour and spectacular views, and is a great place to spend the afternoon.
Neo Chorio is a short drive from Latchi, and is a traditional village with stone houses and winding streets, and is the entrance to the Akamas Nature Reserve. It offers a number of places to eat, and lots of different types of accommodation. It provides stunning views of the coast and the Akamas.
