біля Achéleia, Eparchía Páfou (Cyprus)

This is the first section of the E4 European Long Distance Walk across Cyprus, covering the western end. It starts from Pafos airport and ends at the village of Lysos. Leaving the airport the path briefly enters the Timi park, before following the coast close to the airport fence. Then it heads up a valley, a paddle up a stream is required at one point, to the village of Episkopi and the abandoned village of Moro Nero. A walk over a series of hills follows, through a new settlement of expensive houses with a large golf course, and passing close to older villages such as Tsada that are worth a detour. After the town of Peyia, the E4 follows the coast around the Akamas Peninsula on gravel roads to the Bath of Aphrodite, then turns back on itself to climb the mountains in the centre of the peninsula to reach Drousia. Finally it crosses the lowlands separating the the Akamas peninsula mountains from the foothills of the Troodos mountains, again bypassing villages such as Goudi and Steni that reward a visit, if only for a coffee. This section of the track ends at the village of Lysos.
I have walked this route and believe it close to where the E4 was intended to go, it follows the yellow and black, diamond shaped E4 waymarks, but it may deviate in the ocasional place. More details can be found in my blog . The next section of the E4 can be found here
