Cape Gkreko

The Cape Gkreko National Forest Park (also known as Cape Greco) is a protected nature reserve near the towns of Ayia Napa and Protaras, which is within the Famagusta district of Cyprus.







In 1993, this site was declared a National Forest Park.  According to legend, there's an Ayia Napa Sea Monster, which resembles a porpoise-dragon combo, living off the coast of Cape Gkreko.  :)

Within the Cape Gkreko Park, there are several nature trails, picnic sites, and sea caves, as well as areas for cliff jumping and swimming. 

Also, the Kamara tou Koraka natural rock bridge and the Agii Anagyri Church are located in Cape Gkreko.
 






Cape Gkreko is a beautiful location and ideal place for tourists and locals to spend the day.
