2 hour safari
The 2 hour safari is recommended for families with kids as it means an easier terrain and a shorter time-frame.
The safari starts at 10am. (In summer, when the daylight hours are longer, we can do an afternoon tour as well.)
Please arrive at least 20 minutes prior to the start time to fill in and sign the paperwork, and familiarize yourself with the bikes.
We start our route near the famous Coral Bay beach of Pegeia, carry on towards the shipwreck and sea caves.
Then we carry on to Adonis bath where you can swim and enjoy a beautiful scenery (the entrance fee is 7 Euros and is not included in the price of the safari).
A little bit about each site
Pegeia is situated mainly on the steep slopes of the coastal hills inland from Coral Bay, at the southern end of the Akamas Peninsula. The origin of the name Pegeia is said to derive from the Latin word Baia (Bay). The village itself was first settled by Venetians, during the Venetian Domination of Cyprus (1489-1570).
Shipwreck EDRO III
The Sierra Leone-flagged EDRO III ran aground on 8 September 2011 in heavy seas, during a voyage to Rhodes with a cargo of plasterboard. At the time of the accident, the ship had nine crew members – seven Albanians and two Egyptians. The crew were rescued and airlifted to safety. The EDRO III weighs about 2.5 tons and is over 80 meters in length.
The area boasts caves, as well as spectacular rock formations, which have taken thousands of years to form. Earlier, when the human presence was less prominent, there were seals (Monachus monachus) inhabiting the caves, which added to the popularity of the area among the sightseers.
Adonis Baths is one of the most beautiful and unique areas in Cyprus. Tradition says that Adonis, the God of Beauty, tended his horses in this place and hunted in the Akamas forest.
According to Greek mythology, Adonis and Aphrodite had many children here, and the citizens of Paphos are supposed to be descendant of these two lovers.
