Given the excellent location of the village and due to the relatively large tract of land that is irrigated naturally it has an abundance of vegetable farmers.
Apart from cereals and legumes, forage plants, vegetables (mainly cucumbers, tomatoes and melons) citrus fruits and olive trees, the hot climate helps the growing of some semi-tropical plants such as Indian fig and the loquat.
As you drive around you will see many greenhouses and vegetable fields.
Upper Argaka stands upon a slope with excellent views towards the sea and of the Paphos forest, the east part of the village has officially been deemed as a region of excellent natural beauty.
Several streams flow down from the slope towards the sea, indeed with a relatively large one flowing next to the village.
The river of Makounta, upon which the Argaka - Makounta dam was constructed is located southeast of the village.
The lower part of the village had been developed recently and runs along the coast. Here you will find a variety of supermarkets and tavernas, a good place to rest up and look out to the sea or to buy some of the local produce you have seen growing in the area.
