The Greenest Place in Paphos

Did you know there is a botanical garden in Paphos?

I didn’t know until last weekend when we discovered this place!

About 20 minutes drive from Paphos towards Limassol on B6, you will see a turn towards Anarita village and signs for Eleouthkia Botanical Garden and Park. It’s actually not just that, but also a garden center and they have a small shop with organic cosmetics and food products.

It’s hard to believe you can find so much greenery in the middle of summer in Cyprus.

You can get a little map by the entrance that highlights all the various sections of the Botanical garden.

And they have the cutest reception flowers.

We turned left by the entrance and went on to explore the small pathways, bridges and the green oasis around.

In the middle of the garden is a small shed with farmer’s house, displaying old tools, olive press and more.

This was my favorite bit. A beautiful little pathway lined with blooming tree and buzzing bees.

If you look from the bottom, it feels like a bright red rain falling down on you.

At the end of the garden was a little section dedicated just to cactus – I didn’t even know there are so many varieties of them!

After a short exploring tour, we were happy to find a small pool right next to the restaurant, along with grass and a playground for little ones. We sat down for a drink and left our little Mr to stretch his bare feet on the freshly cut grass.

Compulsory dip in the pool to freshen up those tired little legs.

The restaurant was almost empty on early Saturday afternoon and the food was delicious. We could sit there all day, even though it’s right next to the highway, it’s so peaceful and relaxing.
