Voroklini and Polis Chrysochou : The new green beaches!
Yiannathes beach in Voroklini and Polis Chrysochou beach- which are currently being environmentally improved under the ‘Greening Cyprus Beaches’ eco-initiative – have begun to upgrade by planting endemic plants.
Around 950 and 300 endemic bushes and flowers have recently been planted along the seaside pedestrian road in Yiannathes and in Polis Chrysochous respectively, fulfilling one of the criteria required in order to become a green beach. Both beaches will soon begin to implement the rest of the criteria required, by providing traditional locally made clay ashtrays, place green directory signage, installing bins for general waste and recycling and creating a bicycle parking area.
The beaches are already Blue Flag holders and this additional initiative is undertaken through a partnership between CTO, CSTI and TF, which was launched in 2010. Yiannathes is the third beach and Polis the fourth beach to be selected for the greening process after Fig Tree Bay and Nissi Beach in the Famagusta region. Adopt the project and transform your beach to a sustainable manage beach for all to enjoy!
