About Polis


Polis is a small seaside town located on the north-western tip of Cyprus in the Pafos District. Its full name is Polis Chrysochous, which means "Golden Town" in Greek. Sweeping flaxen bays contrast with azure blue waters and softly hued mountains, characterising the magnificent landscape unique to this part of the island.

Modern day Polis is set where the ancient city kingdom of Marion once flourished, and is now favoured by those seeking a relaxed lifestyle in stunning surroundings.
