A picnic in the park can be an enjoyable way to take in the natural beauty of Cyprus with those close to you. On the Akamas peninsula, the Smigies Picnic Site occupies a quiet, pine-shaded mountainside dale and offers tables, benches, and sanitary facilities. The site is just a five-kilometre drive from Anassa—head up the hill past the 300-year-old village of Neo Chorio and the Agios Minas stone chapel. You’ll want to pack a picnic, of course, and Anassa stands ready to help you: choose from five distinctive offerings on our Picnic Menu. The Akamas Picnic, for example, features regional favourites—local cheeses, carob syrup, cured meats, fresh village bread, and baklava. The Anassa Deluxe Picnic is a gourmet’s delight: enjoy an aged Jabougo ham crostini with black truffle, rocket, and parmesan cheese, a wrap filled with grilled Angus beef fillet, greens, and horseradish, and assorted fine cheeses, breads, and pastries. There is even a Spa Picnic for those who seek a light and nutritious meal. Guest Services can guide you through the complete menu and help you make your beverage selection; please note that orders must be placed twelve hours in advance. You may want to combine your picnic with a hike in the woods, as the picnic site sits at the head of the Pissouromoutti Trail. The three-kilometre route includes the summit of a hill with an astonishing 360° view of the peninsula and surrounding sea. On the trail or at the table, take a deep breath and enjoy the rustic scenery.
