I would go far as I can and discover 'unknown' parts of the Akamas, well I found some , but some parts accessible only with boat not even footpaths are there. Road mostly okay, but some places are tricky really need good car and experience. I did mark these at pictures and even if map shows there is a road may you can't drive thru at all. Most roads have maintenance regularly due have to be ready for firefighters. So if a road looks too dirt just turn back if you can and pick up another one. At the beginning Lara road is top quality unpaved road , usable even with salon cars until North Lara beach. Later not really use good off road car, fancy SUV may not works!
Akamas (Greek: Ακάμας, Turkish: Akama), is a promontory and cape at the northwest extremity of Cyprus with an area of 230 square kilometres. Ptolemy described it as a thickly wooded headland, divided into two by summits [a mountain range] rising towards the north. The peninsula is named after a son of Theseus, hero of the Trojan War and founder of the city-kingdom of Soli.
Until the year 2000, the peninsula was used by the British Army and Navy for military exercises and as a firing range. Under the 1960 Treaty of Establishment, the British Army was allowed to use the Akamas for exercises for up to 70 days a year. 
At the southern end of the peninsula is the town of Pegeia and on its northeast side the town of Polis. Due to the mountainous nature of the peninsula there are no roads running through its heartland. Furthermore, some roads marked on Cypriot road maps of the area are not tarmaced. Visitor attractions in Akamas include a loggerhead turtle sanctuary and the Baths of Aphrodite where the goddess is said to have bathed, near Polis.
I had plenty of trip here around Lara Beach this is why I didn't stop here and took pictures, you can find video on my YouTube channel
'Motorway of the park' looks pretty awesome quality unpaved road, but.. some places just tough where road is too rocky or rivers damage road at every winter. You can get Lara Beach and little more far with saloon car,but this is the maximum without capable off road car.
Nature shelter , small caves in soft stone , goats use it to get shade on hot days.
It is going to be really shit quality road :( be careful with what type of car you drive will be matter really
People are so care less, they come here with big trucks, thru out trash and not collect anything to keep clean this beautiful area , shame..
Don't follow my route here , if you have fancy SUV only or/and not experienced off road driver. Take the easy road as most buggy and quad drivers do.
Smaller than Lara Beaches, may less nice as well, but! Nobody here even at summer time weekend, sadly some garbage shows idiots visit this place.
But truly getting worst and worst I didn't not take photos due I had to drive thru on all obstacles. You can expect lava stones instead of road, ruined road by river with gorge, deep sand etc
Same issue, sad to see many plastic craps.
Pray to not get anybody else on this road.
Thanks for cellphone tower you able to use internet here.
Road wasn't easy to drive here from light house often dry mud steep slopes on the road. I don't suggest to make it reverse.
Fontana Amoroza very popular boat destination from Latchi
