near Episkopí, Eparchía Páfou (Cyprus)

HAZARD: Do not attempt this walk after rain or if there is rain in the forecast. About 1.4 miles of the walk is in the bed of the River Ezousa. Nearer the sea, this same river has to be forded. During the January 2019 storms this was over two metres deep and fast flowing, ideal for white water canoes! Even in dry conditions, the river bed is uneven but might be graded "Moderate".

Get the 609 bus at 09:00 (Saturdays) or 07:50 (Weekdays) from the Karavella Bus Station. The 2019 fare was EUR 1.50. Stay on the bus to the end of the line.

From Episkopi, drop down into the river valley. The road merges with the river bed. Continue for 1.4 miles in the river bed. This is rocky and uneven. Back on tracks, follow the river valley almost to the sea. You will pass the Santa Barbara settlement which looks like a castle. Ramblers of a certain age might be amused to pass Barbara Castle!

The track follows a concrete aquaduct, still in use. Cross under the motorway fly-over. A short cut through an orange orchard failed. Cross the main coast road and continue on tarmac. Close to the beach, ford the river and head roughly west back to Paphos. It was cool and windy so the map shows a more sheltered inland route. If the weather is warm, the beach route is fine.

The walk ends at the harbour bus station. To complete the circle, either walk 3 km back to Karavella or get the 618 bus
