Agios Georgios Agios Georgios Agios Georgios
Agios Georgios (St George) is a village located in the Paphos District of Cyprus. The small fishing harbour of Agios Georgios sits in a breakwater in front of a small island, and was formerly the important settlement of 'Drepanum' in Roman times. It is now primarily known for its small, quiet shingle beach and its three or four good souvla (spit roasted charcoal grilled meat) and fish restaurants.
Easy access to the traditional village of Kathikas high in the Akamas mountains with beautiful views of the natural area of the Akamas peninsular. From there it is a short drive to Polis and Latchi on the north side of the peninsular.
The beach and coastline can be walked to in under ten minutes with a choice of routes and areas of coatline to enjoy. Agios Georgios has a renowned fish tavern where the fresh fish is bought from the fishing vessels situated in the beautiful picturesque harbour directly below.

The Monastery at Agios Georgios is beautifully architectured and is open to view from 7am.

Other things to do in the area include visiting Pafos Bird park, reptile park, horse riding, visiting the Akamas peninsular and Lara Beach Turtle Nature Reserve, sailing and walking/hiking the beautiful coastline and countryside. Those seeking a little adventure may enjoy a 4X4, buggy safaris or deep sea diving. The water park in Paphos is a 30 minute drive and guests inform us that its a great day out for the children and adults alike.

There are some beautiful archaeological ruins to be viewed in and around Agios Georgios, Tomb of the Kings and Paphos and a little further afield (approx 1.5hr) is the amazing scenery of the Troodos mountains where skiing is available during the winter months.
