This quaint Cyprus community was formed upon the sandstones, lavas, and magma rocks of the Pleistocene period, which add to its natural charm and enchanting mystique. Due to its favorable growing climate, agriculture is a big part of the area’s livelihood, and you’ll see fragrant fruit trees spread throughout the region. One of Argaka’s hidden gems is the Gialia Nature Trail, offering nature lovers a day of hiking on well-marked trails surrounded by gorges, seascapes, and green rolling hills. Picnic areas throughout the Gialia Nature Trail offer a welcome way to rest while enjoying lunch or a snack amidst the breathtaking scenery.
If you’d like to try your hand at windsurfing or paddle boarding, head to Argaka Beach for professional lessons, or simply enjoy the beach views and relaxed local lifestyle. At the end of the day, you can marvel at the colors of the setting sun as you dine in one of the seaside bars or tavernas. And if your visit happens to be during turtle nesting season, you’ll get a firsthand look at Argaka’s protected turtle nesting grounds and strict turtle conservation program.
