The site is most famous for its Roman ruins so there’s an entrance fee - but my book suggests possible ways of avoiding payment

If you have any information which you feel would help to update the book, please email me at and I’ll add your observations to these pages

Paphos headland

Monday, 9 August 2010

A classic migration site – a headland complete with lighthouse, bushes, grassy areas, trees and a drinking pool. Warblers, wheatears, pipits, larks, shrikes and flycatchers can be found here on migration and up to 6 Greater Sandplovers usually winter here.

The vegetation within the fenced area has been allowed to grow, limiting the feeding areas for wheatears, larks and pipits.

However, there is a footpath around the shore where the vegetation is much shorter
