Special Interest Holiday
Droushia is on the edge of the Akamas Peninsula at the western most point of Cyprus, and the whole area is crisscrossed by rocky trails and long distance walking routes. It is the easternmost point of the three major flora zones of Europe, and the number of plant species found here runs up to 600, of which 35 are endemic.
The variety of fauna is also impressive: 168 bird species, 12 mammals, 20 reptiles and many butterfly species. Akamas is ideal for climbing, walking, running, mountain biking, swimming, diving, fishing, exploring, cruising on small craft, and bird watching. Akamas is one of the very few important sea turtle nesting areas in the Mediterranean for both the Loggerhead Turtle and the rarer Green Turtle.
The town of Paphos to the south, is on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List. Among the treasures unearthed, are the remarkable mosaics in the Houses of Dionysus, Theseus and Aion, the mysterious vaults and caves, the Tombs of the Kings, and other places of interest.
