Vehicles to be Banned from Akamas Off Road Tracks following Deaths

No public use of a dangerous forest road in the virgin area of Akamas will be allowed after the operation of the National Forest Park of Akamas in 2022, following from the deaths of tourists who have driven over the edge.

Three recent fatal traffic accidents were recorded in 2021 on the picturesque road from Aphrodite’s Baths to “Blue Lagoon” beach. Most people go there on three-wheel bikes and buggy mobiles & Rental Cars. There were also deaths on the same off-road tracks in 2020 & 2019. 

Government departments responsible for allowing public use of such a dangerous road have been slammed by local authorities and political parties.

According to plans and regulations of the Special Ecological Assessment Report for the Sustainable Development Plan of the Akamas National Forest Park, this road will be used exclusively by the staff of the competent authorities for the protection and management of the 2000 Natura Network.

That is, the Department of Forests, Department of Environment, Department of Fisheries and Marine Research, Game and Fauna Service and Paphos District Administration.

In addition,  it will be used by staff of other public services after informing the Department of Forestry.

Vehicles transporting visitors of the National Forest Park in the area will also be allowed to use the specific road but only after obtaining the relevant written permission from the Director of the Forestry Department.

Authorised & Licensed Jeep Safari Land Rovers will be allowed to do Safari Excursions , such as Jimmys Jeep Safari Company , who has been doing these excusrions for many years.
