Trees

You will see masses of olive trees and carob trees around the resort. These are protected by law here so, other than for reasons of disease, they will be here for some years to come. There is one olive tree next to the Intercontinental Hotel entrance which is over 300 years old and one in the village square in Polis which is over 600 years old.

Carob trees have green pods which gradually go black, the beans were used for making plastic at one time but are now used as a chocolate substitute and available in health food shops in many countries. The majestic cedar can also be found in parts of the Paphos Forest, mainly in Cedar Valley.
