Marina Latchi is one of the official ports of entry to Cyprus with all the services that are traditionally provided in the harbor. Initially, the port of Latchi (Port Polis) was used by fishing boats and small vessels. In recent years, due to the increasing demand from vacationers, mainly sea tourism, the harbor has been expanded - a new outdoor pool was built to serve recreational boats, while the old port pool was left for fishing vessels.
Over time, two docks with a length of 70 meters were installed in it, and a platform for small vessels with a length of 100 meters was erected. The depth in the port is from 2 to 4 meters. After the work was carried out, the port became the hallmark of the Policy, and the village of Latchi became widely known. Nevertheless, today the port has many operational problems, it requires a radical reconstruction.
