The Paphos region
Paphos and Cyprus
Cyprus has more to offer the visitor than any other Mediterranean island, a fascinating blend of landscape, climate, history and culture. There is a seemingly endless coastline of sandy coves and beaches washed gently by crystal clear blue waters.
Travel a little way from the coast into the pine forests , an hours drive in the Winter for skiing in the Troodos Mountains; experience a kaleidoscope of colours in the Spring time; meet the local people whose reputation for good food and hospitality is world-wide and you will discover for yourself why this magical island has been attracting people for over 9,000 years.
Birthplace of Aphrodite and in Roman times the capital of Cyprus, Paphos is one of the most beautiful and ancient towns of Cyprus and is situated on the southwest coast. Sheltered from the north by the Troodos Mountains, it has the healthiest climate in the Mediterranean. Paphos Harbour with it's ancient castle, marine and water sports centres, is lined with colourful restaurants serving fresh fish and marine delicacies. Nearby are archaeological sites, rich with antiquities, providing an interest away from the usual - in fact UNESCO has included Paphos on it's World Cultural Heritage List.
There are no private beaches on the island and Cyprus boasts dozens of European Blue Flag awards. The secluded sandy beaches are perfect for snorkelling and every watersport you can imagine.
If you want excitement then you may want to visit one of three world class water parks within easy reach that rival any in the world.
Or, if you want something more relaxing there are three top class golf courses (par 71/72) within 20 minutes drive.
Eating out in Cyprus is not only extremely cheap but also it's virtually impossible to eat badly. A lot of the locals and tourists too, don't bother cooking at home they just eat out. You can get full English breakfasts for around €4 and even have a 20 to 30 course meal, the famous 'Cyprus Meze', for around €12. Cuisine from all over the world is on offer for the more discerning diner, and a choice of upmarket, basic and in between dining experiences can easily be had without travelling too far at all.
Actually, you can have a different Cypriot meal every night for two weeks and never eat the same thing twice, or if you miss 'Dear Old Blighty' , there are Fish & Chips shops par excellence and even a Nippy's Tea Shop to be found.
There truly is just too much of Cyprus to write about here. The best thing is to just make the effort to visit and we guarantee you will have the holiday of a lifetime.
The blue flag beaches of Coral Bay and the main strip of shops and restaurants are a short drive away (3kms). Car hire is recommended for getting around during the day and there are 3 taxi firms in Coray Bay if you would rather leave the driving to someone else .
You can drive or take a bus into the town of Paphos with its historical harbour, gift shops and restaurants. Also the ‘Old Town’ of Paphos with its blend of high quality shops and traditional markets.
Things to do in the area include Paphos Bird Park, reptile park, horse riding, Akamas Peninsular & Lara Beach Nature Reserve (famous for turtles), hiking/walking, buggy safaris, 4 x 4 safaris, sea caves area, sailing and many more. Amusement and water parks in Paphos are also easily accessible from Coral Bay as are numerous archaeological ruins such as the Tombs of the Kings.
If you want to get out and explore some fantastic scenery, take a trip to the Akamas Peninsula, Polis, Latchi or even Troodos mountains. The Akamas is an untouched part of Cyprus with unspoilt coastline and traditional fish taverns in stunning seaside locations. Troodos is of course the main mountain range in Cyprus, not many people know that in the winter....you can ski!

"A fantastic villa and wonderful overall holiday experience"
We had a great experience from start to finish which was a welcome relief as we'd had some shockers elsewhere in the past! You can see from the photos that the views are stunning and they didn't do it justice, such a great vista to wake up to every day to the sea across the valley, you feel instantly relaxed. The villa, gardens and pool were beautiful, immaculate, well equipped, stylish, spacious and comfortable. We had eveything we needed and space to spread ourselves out when in need of a bit of peace or siesta! The team looking after the property were great and obviously take pride in maintaining everything to a high standard.
We also had a really friendly and efficient service from the owners who were happy to offer general guidance for our holiday and recommend restaurants (Peyia tavern and Yannis were favorites). We had swift return of the deposit after our stay which again enhanced the whole experience.

"Beautiful immaculate villa lovely gardens & great pool with stunning views"
The villa is really clean and very nicely furnished. The garden is very attractive and the pool really inviting. The views from the villa and the pool are stunning in the daytime seeing the surrounding valley and fields and trees and it was lovely to see the lights of Peyia during the dark. Unfortunately we had cool weather for a few days and this meant the pool was a bit chilly to use but as the weather warmed up it soon became a lovely pool to swim in.
A car is really advisable but we didnt want to drive on this visit to cyprus so we used the recommended taxi firm and they were great. We had to call the maintenance company a couple of times and they were very pleasant and attentive to our queries.
There are some good supermarkets and bakeries within about 10 mins drive but nothing in walking distance.
Coral bay has had some improvements made and was much more pleasant than last year.
