Rules of conduct of visitors

Visitors to the picnic and camping sites should comply with certain basic rules of conduct to ensure that minimum damage is caused to the environment and also that the comfort of other visitors is not discupted. The most important of these rules are the following:

The lighting of fire is allowed only in the barbecues provided. At certain picnic sites, like those at Asinou and Athalassa, no fire lighting is allowed.

Before you leave the site make sure that the embers have entirely died down even if you have stored them in places which may have been designed especially for this purpose.

The use of wood which is found in the forest for the lighting of fire and the cooking of food is not allowed. Every visitor should bring with him the necessary quantity of coals.

Keep the place clean. Pick all the garbage which has resulted from the recreation of your group and put them in garbage bins or if they are full take the garbage with you. Do not leave it in plastic bags out because it is usually scattered by stray dogs, foxes etc.

Do not create too much commotion with unnecessary noise, respect the other persons’ right to tranquility.

Cutting plants, carving barks of trees and tampering with birds’ nests damage the environment and are prohibited by the forest legislation.

Park your car at the parking places and not next to the tables.

Use the water sparingly. Do not waste it.

Urge other visitors also to observe the basic rules of conduct.

If you notice a fire call immediately emergency number 1407 (24 hours free of charge).
