    A long-awaited project to develop sustainable tourism in the remote districts of Chrysochou and Tylliria is finally getting underway after pandemic delays.

    The initiative was launched in 2022 by then-Deputy Minister Savvas Perdios and aims to go beyond traditional tourism models, fostering a thriving local community alongside a responsible visitor experience.

    With a 2030 completion target, the project integrates with the national tourism strategy and outlines a three-year action plan.

    The strategy prioritizes two key objectives: retaining and attracting residents and nurturing local entrepreneurship.

    To achieve the first, planners propose exploring housing schemes tailored to local needs and improving essential services like healthcare, education, and sports facilities.

    Boosting entrepreneurship involves training programs for residents, social media education for tourism businesses, and the creation of craft centers where artisans can showcase their skills through visitor workshops.

    Building a sustainable identity

    The project delves into establishing a distinct tourism identity for the wider Polis Chrysochous and Tylliria region.

    A three-phase approach encompasses reviewing the current landscape, developing identity recommendations, and creating an action plan.

    Encompassing 37 communities across Paphos and Nicosia, the project aligns with national strategies and local development plans. Officials believe the “Capabilities Strategy” leverages the region’s unique strengths to ensure sustainable growth and a competitive edge.

    Untouched beauty, authentic experiences

    The vision centers on creating a sustainable tourism identity that promotes Chrysochou and Tylliria as an authentic year-round destination.

    Highlighting the area’s natural beauty – valleys, caves, beaches, and crystal-clear waters – the plan emphasizes a focus on special interest tourism. Visitors can explore a landscape steeped in myths and legends, adding a layer of cultural richness to the experience.

    Investing in infrastructure and promotion

    The Deputy Ministry recognizes Chrysochou and Tylliria’s unique offerings, aiming to enhance the aesthetics and infrastructure of the region.

    This includes improving accessibility for locals and visitors, implementing sustainable waste management practices, and investing in digital tourism initiatives.

    Upgrading existing hotels, increasing bed capacity, and promoting responsible travel practices are also priorities.

    Branding and marketing play a crucial role, capitalizing on the growing tourist demand for sustainability and authentic experiences .
