The Paphos region
Paphos is a fascinating area of Cyprus with something for everyone. Beach lovers may enjoy Aphrodite's Rock, Coral Bay, Pissouri Bay or Lara Bay (look for Turtle nests on the beach). A cosmopolitan array of restaurants and pavement cafes may be found in Paphos itself and more traditional restaurants in the local villages. The Harbour at Kato (Old) Paphos offers opportunities for boat trips, fishing trips or diving. Golfers can enjoy 4 golf courses within the proximity of about 15-20 minutes drive ( http://www.cgf.org.cy/ )
. Nature lovers can enjoy spectacular nature trails again within the proximity of about 15-30 minutes drive. ( http://www.moa.gov.cy/moa/fd/fd.nsf/332bcc13258c2619c2257059002420a8/46a246489c1cfc71c225705900245c19?OpenDocument )
The area is steeped in history. At the House of Dionysos and at Curium (along the coast) can be seen the remains of Greek and Roman buildings, an amphitheatre and magnificent mosaics. The Tombs of the Kings, spread over a vast area, are impressive underground tombs dating back to the 4th century BC. Carved out of solid rock - some are decorated with Doric pillars. High officials rather than Kings were buried here, but the magnificent tombs gave the locality its name. Kykkos Monastery and Agios Neofytos Monastery are well worth a visit.
Local attractions for children are Paphos Bird & Animal Park, Paphos Go Karting Centre, Mini Golf, Aphrodite Waterpark, the Adonis Baths and Waterfall plus many indoor or outdoor local playgrounds.
Heading North by car, is the route to Cedar Valley and the Troodos Mountains. The route is peppered with many small but charming villages along the way. There is an excellent highway which runs to all corners of Cyprus but the old coast road is the most scenic route. A drive along here past various ancient sites such as Aphrodite's Birthplace and Temple, towards Limassol, taking in Curium, is delightful and is littered with the most beautiful views.
The Chlorakas / Chlorakas Beach area
The village of Chloraka is one of the biggest villages in the area. It is spread over a large area and 2 distinct sides. The upper part is where many traditional and modern shops, restaurants, bars and amenities are located, the lower part (where Villa Muses is located) is much more residential, peaceful and serene with the beach close by and many large luxurious properties scattered throughout. The local Hotel (Akti) provides some good amenities to the area with restaurant, mini-market and a bar with Sky TV. There is also Bar Dimma which has both indoor and outdoor seating, a pool and Sky TV.
A marooned shipwreck provides an interesting landmark in this area and when walking along the beach at dusk, the sun can sometimes set directly behind the shipwreck creating a very dramatic scene which would not be out of place in a Hollywood movie.
The tourist areas of both Paphos and Coral Bay are about 10 minutes away by car in either direction, the latter having the beautiful Coral Bay Beach, a beach suitable for all the family as well as a diverse range of bars, restaurants and cafes to suit all tastes.
