Pomos Village (Paphos)
Pomos is a quaint fishing village located on the west coast of
Paphos, 20 kilometres from Polis centre and approximately 75 minutes
drive from Paphos airport.
As yet untouched by commercialisation therefore the pace of life is typically Mediterranean and relaxed.
The scenery of the Pomos region is spectacular due to the dramatic contrast from lush green mountains home to pine and Cypress trees, wild flowers, fruit trees and water melons growing wild.
The Pomos beaches are a combination of sand and stone and appear black in colour with many rock pools ideal for exploration and fishing.
The small harbour of Pomos is the central focal point of local life with fishing boats laden with nets and the catch of the day. Next to the harbour is a long stretch of beach with cliffs to one side offering shade and protection from the wind
To the right of the harbour is the fish Taverna called Kanali which is renowned for excellent fresh fish dishes. Locals will travel from as far as Nicosia to participate in their mouth watering culinary delights such as barbecued octopus, sea bream, snapper, king prawn and much more. The fish meze is also a must where a selection of fish is served accompanied with salads, dips, vegetables and washed down with wine.
The small village centre offers a choice of restaurants, a coffee shop, supermarket and bank.
