I don't 'do' caves! I sent my daughter down into the one at the back of the Church of the Holy Cave (supposed to be curative water running into it) off she went into the black hole with only her mobile for a torch. All she found were a few discarded tissues! She did however say she then needed a cure for her back after being bent double going in there!
I don't do pyramids either not since the great one where I hadn't realised you have to 'crawl' lol! Hurts my back now just thinking about it!
Thanks for the photo of it Ken. Will be the only time I ever see it lol! Like you - been, seen, done it - won't be doing it again! I see the sun was shining for your visit. As I've said it was TORRENTIAL rain when I did it - makes that road a different kettle of fish. Was a real job to get all that red clayish mud off the car - it was even in the engine compartment!
Can anybody recommend a place to stay in or near the area,(apart from the wooden huts) or in the Bogaz area. Looking for somewhere for a couple of nights so we can explore the area at leisure.
Follow the road from Dikapaz down to coast where the "wooden huts" are. As you follow road to left there is a place run by Alpie(?) who also runs Kokaries (Same name I think at both places).He is so friendly and accomodating.Has own little beach grows own veg and cooks whatever you want in evening.Truly hospitable and a pleasure to stay there.Sorry no tel number
Stay in the Arched Houses! Not too far up the panhandle but easy to get to it all on both coasts from there.
Very peaceful and with good eateries (and not much else) almost adjacent. Couple of my pics but more info on their website here:

Thanks Tang, I have to take some people up there soon and wasn't exactly looking forward to a long day's driving or sleeping in the huts... Do you remember how much?
Sorry no I don't. But they were spotlessly clean - sort of minimalist quaker style accom. Maybe the prices are on their website? We just booked in while there. This was about 3yrs ago. There is a nice old Taverna right by them - friendly proprietor - he could see my GC plates and kept referring to his stuff in Greek for us lol! Even asked if we wanted a 'Cyprus Coffee! He gave us so many 'on the house' side dishes to start with that we could hardly eat any of our main meal we'd ordered.
All quite derelict outside of the actual Arched Houses site. Ramshackle places with chickens living in old scrap cars and the occasional goat or cow tied to a tree. Very peaceful there though.
