STUDENTS EXPLORE COASTAL EROSION

Secondary students visited Polis earlier this week to explore coastal erosion.

The pupils have been looking at the topic in Geography lessons and took the trip to see the effects up close.

Polis campsite, one of the island’s most popular beaches, saw devastating erosion over a two-day period in December.

Some 40 metres of sandy beach is believed to have been sliced away, with many blaming a 6.2 earthquake off the coast of Turkey on 28th December.

The quake was felt across Cyprus, particularly north of Paphos.

Students completed a field study on the day before stopping off in Sea Caves on the way back to ASPIRE to see how erosion has affected a different part of the island.
