A really exellent road and definitely one of the best in the area. Winding along at around 1000m through some low mountains, here lies a section of fast bend combinations that are hard to beat. A very rewarding stretch to ride fast, and mostly very good surface and good corners that give little in the way of nasty surprises. Highly recommended. Can be combined with the A396 from Ronda, a beautiful little city that makes a good stop.
Open fast ride to Lymbia, then narrow and fairly twisty to Mosfiloti. Main road to Kornos, then open, but tightens up on way to Lefkara. Tight and twisty up to Vavatsinia, coffee stop at Marias resturant just before village.
Back down past Lefkara to Kato Drys, then twisty again to Valva. Fast and flowing to Choirkoitia. Left towards Larnaca, but turn right towards Ayias Theodoros, tight and twisty through orange groves. Left on coast road then right at Camel Park, then left on small coast road. Through towards Meneou, and back to Larnaca, short motorway stretch.
About 2.30hrs with a stop.
Use: Road Bike
Proceed to the Tomb of the Kings seashore road E701 towards Pegia village but before turning right for Pegia turn again right for Adonis baths. It's a nice place for a visit and history says that this is the place which goddess of Love, Aphrodite, has chosen to meet her lover, Adonis. At the place there are two blue lagoon pools with some height difference and you can swim and also dive from one to another. Return back from the same road and at the end turn right and very shortly you will see the road signs for Pegia. Reaching Pegia set heading for Kathikas village and start ascending which in a while you will be able to enjoy a nice view of the area, especially on afternoons. Passing Kathikas, in a few kilometers turn right towards Arodhes, Inia and Droushia villages. A beautiful route reaching its best during spring time which you can enjoy the green plant less high hils with a view to the blue sea accompanied by the fabulous smell of the blossoming wild flowers, have a stop and gather those superb gifts of nature. The above mentioned villages are newly renovated to their traditional character which is interesting to visit and also you can have a coffee or a traditional local meal(especially in Droushia) in a local taverna. Leaving Droushia you will have the chance to enjoy a nice view of the Chrisochou bay. Continue road E709 towards Polis and Latsi. Coming to T junction, turning left you will reach the small fishermen harbor of Latsi. Continuing further on the same road E704 you can visit Aprodites baths (nothing spectacular) or you can enter the Akamas peninsula which is great place to see but you need an on/off bike (you can rent from Polis). Turning right from the T junction mentioned above, you will head on the small town of Polis (camping side available). If you wish to ride in more remote seaside roads you can take road E704 towards Pirgos/Argaka/Pomos . The ride is very nice giving the rider nice views of seaside scenery, the road ends at Pirgos /food/gas station available). For the return trip you can choose to take the Troodos mountains (ask locals for directions), a nice paved windy road through Paphos forest, very nice but quit long duration (due to low speed) alternate route.
Notes: Spring summer season recommended / easy access to any kind of facility
