Cape Greco in Cyprus is one of the most amazing nature spots in the world. Here you can admire unimaginable landscapes, swim in underwater caves and see the azure sea that many travellers are so attracted to. But make sure you go to Cape Greco well prepared. This article explains how to get to the place, what you can see and how to prepare for the trip.
Some background information about Cape Greco
Many tourists are disappointed when they see Cape Greco from a tour bus. Instead of the expected green park you see a landscape of bushes and lonely trees here and there. But the first impressions are deceptive!
The incredible scenery that can be seen from the peaks, the rocky shores, the blue waters of the Mediterranean, the amazing flora and fauna of Cyprus - all this wonderfully comes together at Cape Greco. The cape is about 20 metres high, so the views are spectacular. There are many cliffs on the shoreline, up to 10 metres high, from which even the daredevils dare not jump.
Many say that even in Ayia Napa the sights are not as beautiful as on the cape. Here you can see:
When wishing to visit Cape Greco, one should do the homework and travel well prepared.

Heading to the cape you should consider the following tips from seasoned travellers:
Travellers advise going to the cape on your own to get the chance to fully enjoy its beauties. Plus, a trip on your own is considerably cheaper than a guided one.
Cape Greco: How to get there from different cities

From Larnaca Cape Greco can also be reached by public transport. Take bus no. 711 at the Old Larnaca Hospital stop. Buses are infrequent (every 2-3 hours), so you should check the schedule beforehand. By the way, many tourists like to stay in Larnaca, where properties for rent are cheaper than in Ayia Napa, but the comfort and quality are high.
