A new film about the stunning natural environment around Constance Ephélia celebrates the resort’s work to protect and sustain the region’s precious biodiversity.
In what the film describes as the delicate balance between the economic benefits of tourism and conservation, Ephélia is shown as a successful example of sustainability.
With a national nature reserve, marine park and ancient mangrove forests all on its doorstep, Ephélia was built with the idea of actively protecting and enhancing the biodiversity of the region.
As such all the plants in the resort are endemic to the region and the raft of water sports on offer are non-motorised to protect the stunning marine park.
The film highlights daily activities at Ephélia, like making its own compost and recycling waste water, as well as monthly environmental projects such as ‘greenday’ when guests, staff and locals work together to clear rubbish from the mangrove forest and plant seedlings.

Having worked so hard to preserve its stunning biodiversity, guests at Ephélia are encouraged to experience it. Jogging trails, guided nature walks, hikes, rock climbing, kayak tours of the mangroves and diving and snorkelling give guests the chance to get close to this precious environment.
