Latchi Cyprus, otherwise known as Lakki or Latsi dependent on which map you are using!
Once a tiny fishing harbour, Latchi, Cyprus has grown considerably over the past couple of years, yet still retains its unique charm. It is situated on the north west of the island close to the Akamas peninsula.
Latchi is named after the old Greek word for water hole or well - "lakki".
Many years ago, local farmers would bring their livestock down from the hills en route to market and stop for a coffee at Latchi. There were several "lakkis" available for their animals to get fresh water...and so the little town got its name

When to visit Latchi Cyprus
Latchi is obviously at its busiest in the summer months and although it is quiet in the low season from November to March, it is the perfect time to visit if you are an outdoor enthusiast.
Where to stay in Latchi Cyprus
£££££ The Anassa, a spa hotel - gorgeous but very expensive and not close to the harbour if you want to walk out in the evening
£££ Souli hotel - Excellent location at the far end of the beach and only a few minutes walk into town. It also has a smart upmarket restaurant open in the summer months only.
££ Y&P Latchi hotel - Brand new and our #1 favourite. Right next to the best (in our opinion) fish taverna in Latchi. It's also one of the most popular tavernas with all the locals...
Latchi, Cyprus is a great place to stay if you want a relaxing break and it's also a GREAT place to live. You could even build your dream home here on a hillside overlooking the bay :)
