Akamas & Latchi Wildlife

The Akamas & Latchi Wildlife is something to behold!

Recent reports confirm that Cyprus can boast having over 1,500 sea turtle nests as part of a protection programme (started in 1978) and a programme which is considered one of the best in the Mediterranean. And, the majority of these nests are found in the Akamas & Latchi area.

The protection programme started in 1973 and is in effect every year between May and October.

The protection programme covers the beaches of Lara, Toxeftra, the Natura 2000 area at Polis – Yialia, but also anywhere on the island where sporadic spawning has been detected. Cyprus has the most increases in the entire Mediterranean and this has prompted peers to use Cyprus as an example to follow.

We are extremely privileged to live and work in such an outstanding natural landscape.

The crystal clear waters of the Akamas and around Latchi & Argaka are just stunning! In addition to Turtles, we regularly see Dolphins off the Akamas and Latchi coastline. If you’re lucky, you’ll see them too; and sometimes you’ll even get them swimming along-side.

At Latchi Watersports we believe in the environment. We take an active part in ensuring our beaches, coastline and the sea around us are clean and inviting.
