For a second I halted to search for the source of the deafening sound, resembling a busy high way. We had just stepped out the car after a bumpy drive from Kourion in an eastwardly direction. There where no people, no vehicles as far as I could see. Then I realised it was the sound of cobbles and pebbles bumping into each other when the waves where tumbling them around.
It fascinates me that the stones at Episkopi Bay have traveled along Kouris river for ages from Troodos mountains and probably where part in building up this "tombolo" beach. Much later when the dams where built the rivers dried out and the island connecting the mainland via this tombolo (see old maps) transformed into the current peninsula and it's consequential built-in salt lake.
After many stops along the bay we ended up by a plant producing something definitely
nutritious resulting in massive amounts of molluscs and small crabs. To the great joy of the children, and myself.
