Paphos is a relaxing seaside resort in the south-west corner of Cyprus, with safe beaches, a large variety of restaurants and bars, and a wealth of fascinating archaeological sites. The harbour area is full of history with ancient ruins, mosaics and an amphitheatre that are all open to the public, including the 16th century fortress, which offers superb harbour views. For golfers there are three courses nearby, and a short trip along the coast takes you to lovely coves and beaches. Perfect for a quieter holiday, there is a variety of accommodation in Paphos to choose from. Rent a Paphos villa in the popular Kato Paphos part of town, or a book a holiday apartment close to the beach for beautiful Mediterranean views.
