A Plethora of Plant and Animal Life

The diversity of Cyprus' flora is not immediately obvious to first-time visitors. After the explosion of color from endemic flora and wildflowers in spring, summer sees the island assume an arid appearance, with only a few hardy flowers and thistles. The island is home to some 1800 species and subspecies of plants, of which about 7% are indigenous to Cyprus. Five major habitats characterize Cyprus' flora profile: pine forests, garigue and maquis (underbrush found in the Mediterranean), rocky areas, coastal areas and wetlands. One of the main places for indigenous plant species is the Troödos Mountains, where around 45 endemic species can be found. You may come across any of them during your stay in a house in Cyprus.

The picturesque harbor is filled with yachts and fishing boats and you’ll often see some large pelicans hanging around the front of the Pelican bar. Stop off on the Limassol-Paphos coastal road near Pissouri Village to see Aphrodite’s Rock. The legend says that Aphrodite, the goddess of love, rose from the waves at this particular spot marked by the rock. She was supposedly carried by the waves on a scallop shell to Kythira and then to Cyprus, although there are varying accounts of this story.

Lara Beach is a stunning unspoilt beach has clean, calm water and pristine sands for those who want to escape people and parasols. The beach is most famous, however, for being home to a turtle hatchery; this is one of the world's few remaining havens for green and logger-head turtles to nest. Volunteers monitor the female turtles and around June and July collect their eggs to place in the hatchery, to protect them from predators and inquisitive tots. Monk seals also dwell in the sea caves around the peninsula.
