Kato Pafos (Lighthouse Area)
As of the 22nd November 2005 this site was designated an SPA.
It consists of a small area north of Pafos castle and around the Pafos lighthouse. Cyprus Wheatear and Cyprus warbler breed at the site and the area is a key wintering ground for the Greater sand plover.
Disturbance is the main threat to birds at this site as hundreds of tourists walk in the vicinity when visiting the coast and the nearby archaeological sites.
