The Karpasia walk is in a pristine, almost untouched by man, rich in bio-diversity area of Cyprus, dominated by low juniper vegetation. It offers excellent vistas of the north Karpasia coast. Walkers may see many feral donkeys. It passes by Apostle Antreas Cape, the most eastern point in Cyprus, by Kleides islets and ends at the renovated historic Apostle Antreas Monastery.
Our walk starts at the recently renovated historic Apostle Antreas Monastery and goes north-west, all the way to the north Karpasia coast. The walk is in a pristine, almost untouched by man, rich in biodiversity area of Cyprus, dominated by low juniper vegetation.
Walkers may see many different plant species, many of them in bloom from February to May. The walk offers excellent vistas of the north Karpasia coast towards Ourania (some ruins remain of this ancient city) and all the way east to Kleides islands and south to Apostle Antreas Monastery.
A high point of the walk is probably a stop at Apostle Antreas Cape, the most eastern point in Cyprus. The walk passes by an excellent beach on the east coast. A 4-km long extension to the walk brings walkers to a beautiful secluded beach towards the north-west. Walkers may see many feral donkeys in the area.Walk Profile
