Latsi harbour

Polis’ harbour, Latsi, is a great place to stop for a stroll or for a hearty meal of fresh fish. Sit down at one of the tavernas along the harbour and enjoy the best fish on the island, mesmerised by the rocking boats in the water, or watch while the fishermen unload their catch and people embark or disembark from boat trips along the coast to the Akamas.

Once a small fishing shelter, from where carobs were exported, the harbour has now been expanded and deepened to become a marina, though still retaining its original charm. You can still see the warehouses where the carobs were stored which have now bee converted into restaurants and cafes. It has become a favourite stopover for yachts travelling from the Greek islands and nearby countries. Small supermarkets and specialty shops allow visitors to stock up with all kinds of provisions. Just before the harbour is the Polis municipal beach, a Blue Flag beach with facilities for swimmers such as deckchairs, umbrellas, and bar with food and drink. There are also facilities for the disabled.
