The laid-back resort of Latchi is famed for its picturesque harbour where you can breathe the ocean breeze as you stroll along the waterside. Or why not indulge at one of the many traditional tavernas overlooking the luxurious boats and sparking sea? There’s also a sandy beach for spending days soaking up the sun. There is nothing more relaxing than a holiday spent next to the sea and close to unspoilt natural beauty.
Local Markets and Shopping
There is a market every month by the harbour, where you’ll find a number of stalls selling anything from traditional Cypriot cakes, natural beauty products, wine and plenty more. Definitely a must visit! Polis which is a short drive away also has a few clothing and souvenir shops.
Bars and Restaurants
One thing you will surely enjoy during your holiday in Latchi is the choice of bars and restaurants. Down at the harbour you will find traditional Cypriot restaurants serving local dishes including souvlakia (grilled meat kebabs), fresh olives with feta or freshly caught fish of the day. Sit right by the harbour and enjoy those stunning views while indulging in your meal. Continue your evening at one of the many bars or pubs and relax with a chilled drink at the end of a hot summer’s day. During the peak periods you’ll also find a couple of discos to enjoy a long and lively night in Latchi.
For a relaxing day beside the sea, Latchi Beach has a mile stretch of shingle with crystal clear waters - an ideal spot for families with younger children. If taking it easy and soaking up endless hours of sun, there are plenty of sun loungers and parasols for hire. For those of you who love adventure, there are plenty of watersports available and you'll find a few lively beach bars serving cocktails to keep you cool from that sun.
Plan a day out on the water with the family from one of the many scenic cruises from Latchi harbour where you can admire the unspoilt beauty of the Akamas coast and the Blue Lagoon Bay.
Places of Interest
Latchi lies next to the spectacular Akamas Peninsula National Park. This is perhaps the most beautiful stretch of the island, with lush valleys and steep gorges teeming with endemic plants and flowers throughout the year. If that's not up your street, why not visit the Baths of Aphrodite, where the goddess was said to bathe.
