This is a very quiet village with friendly locals, 2 small shops, couple of inns and 3 or 4 tavernas.Kathikas is a good location being away from it all but within 20 minutes of most popular locations and beaches.Ideally situated between Paphos and Latchi, the pretty village built of stone is set on top of the low hills . It is said that when the village was built, the stone dwellings were constructed on each side of the river, with Greek Cypriots living on one side and Turkish Cypriots living.
Kathikas is 22kms from Paphos and 14kms from Latchi between Paphos and Polis. The remains of a circular Roman road can be seen in Kathikas. Although the historic taverna no longer exists, it has been replaced by more modern ones, like the Farm Yard Tavern and Araouzos Tavern. Kathikas’ central location makes it an ideal base from which to explore such areas as Polis, the Baths of Aphrodite, the Akamas Peninsula,
the turtle hatchery at Lara Bay, to mention but a few.
