Site summary
The site, which captures the valley of the Pentashoinos River from the Mahairas Mountains to the Larnaca coast, is an even mix of forest, shrubland and agricultural mosaic which hosts breeding Bonelli's Eagles and Rollers as well as the Cyprus endemics. The valley is also a bottleneck for migrating passerines.
