You can enjoy a veritable feast here or simply laze around the pool with a frappe! The pool is 10m x 5m and is not very deep and for that reason I have found it ideal for children. After all if they are happy – we are happy!!
Sea Caves Tavern – 25 minute walk
Sea Caves is a family run taverna offering simple Cypriot cuisine including grilled meats, souvla and mousaka. The views are beautiful and you can witness breathtaking sunsets from the terrace whilst sipping a glass of locally produced wine.

Above Sophie's the family have opened JJ Bar which has far reaching views of neighbouring villages and the coastline below.
The Mill is an intimate wine bar with a wonderful atmosphere and reasonably priced drinks.
The Jail Pub
Contrary to what you might believe you will not be serving time in this quaint taverna and I'm quite certain you will enjoy the merriment to be had here!
A family run taverna with a warm welcome that specialises in local dishes and first rate Mezes. The view looks out towards the coastline and below you will see the main square in Peyia coming alive with animated conversation.
There is a Supermarket providing newspapers and groceries within a 10 minute stroll of the villa. This is ideal for convenience however for larger shopping lists I would recommend heading for one of the Supermarkets in Coral Bay.
Head into Coral Bay for grocery shopping:
Phillippos Supermarket is located on the main road and has absolutely everything at the cheapest prices.
Constantinides Bakery is open 24 hours and has fresh cakes, bread and pasteries. They even have a delicatessen counter offering everything from chorizo to sushi!
If you follow the main road towards Paphos as you pass the first set of traffic lights you will see a Fishmongers immediately on your left hand side. Here you will find every kind of fish and seafood ou could desire from scallops and king prawns to wild salmon, tuna steaks and sword fish. The fish is frozen here and most has come directly from London's renowned Billingsgate Fish Market.
There are 2 pharmacies in Peyia and another one on the main strip of Coral Bay. Pharmacies are very good in Cyprus and you will find good 'over the counter' advise and remedies for common problems.
Dr Eleni is located just behind the main pharmacy opposite the Jail Pub. There is no need to make an appointment here. Dr Eleni is a General Practitioner who specialises as a Paeditrician.
Things to do Outside of Coral Bay
Paphos is situated approximately 30km from Pissouri. Kato Paphos and the main tourist area is land marked by the pretty harbour and dramatic Fort perched on the waters edge. The promenade is the perfect place for a stroll in the warm sunshine and you will find many taverns offering fresh fish and local cuisine to while away an afternoon whilst watching the little fishing boats bob up and down in the water.
Paphos is rich in ancient sites, including the House of Dionysos and the Villa of Theseus, with beautiful mosaic floors, and the Tombs of the Kings. There is a wide variety of activities and facilities to suit all ages whether you are holidaying or living here permanently.
Enjoy an active life in the sun on a choice of beaches where you can try all water sports in the warm Mediterranean Sea from diving to the flying fish!
East of Coral Bay
The tiny fishing harbour of Agios Georgios with a great fish restaurant with stunning views of the glistening Mediterranean Sea.
This sleepy village offers a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of neighbouring resort of Coral Bay which is just a 5 minute drive away and is an ideal base for exploring the rugged and dramatic landscape of the Akamas.
This charming village clings to the rugged hills above the crystal waters of the glistening Mediterranean.
While locals like to claim that in Peyia nothing happens in a hurry, the truth is that nothing much happens at all! However, its this soporific quality that imbues Peyia with most of its charm.
Peyia proves a welcome antidote to the bustle of nearby Paphos and is a great place to while away a relaxing lunchtime with a meze and a cold bottle of Keo. Having slumbered through the day Peyia wakes up at night. Taverna tables groaning under the weight of fresh fish fill the central square, the evening air cools and the village comes alive with the sounds of animated conversation.
There are many restaurants and tavernas to sample including Cousins a family run taverna offering
Fans of fresh seafood should make for the picturesque fishing village of Latchi, which has some of the best fish restaurants situated along the pretty harbour.
Latchi has plenty to appeal to the tourist. Water sports such as parasailing are available here. Boats can be hired from Latchi harbour from where you can take your boat to the Blue Lagoon and swim in the emerald green sea.
Aphrodites Bath is close by the picturesque rock pool and waterfall where the goddess is believed to have bathed, oozes with magic and mystery. Legend has it that the water from the baths is rejuvenating and will bless you with eternal youth! We will let you be the judge! The nearby Akamas Peninsular is an untouched wilderness laced with hiking trails and secluded coves bitten from the pink rock. Offshore, the waters are a glassy mosaic of greens and blues that promise some of the best snorkeling and diving on the island.
Aphrodite Hills and Secret Valley
Close to Petra Tou Romiou you will find a choice of 2 leisure resorts Aphrodite Hills and Secret Valley. Combined these resorts offer superb play on 2 x 18 hole golf courses, driving ranges and a 3 hole pitch and put course. If Golf is not your idea of fun you can relax in the spa, polish your tennis skills with professional lessons and play in the regular tennis social classes or simply unwind and enjoy a leisurely lunch in one of the elegant restaurants set against luscious green surroundings!
Petra Tou Romiou
Close to Aphrodite Hills and Secret Valley you will find one of the most photographed scenes in Cyprus, Petra Tou Romiou more commonly known as Aphrodite's Birth Place. The dramatic rocks look like monumental tear drops in the ocean and are backdrop to the mythological setting where Aphrodite emerged from the waves! You may prefer just to take in the view or if you feel a little more adventurous perhaps climb the largest of the tear dro p rocks or swim around it 3 times to be blessed with Aphrodite's famed eternal beauty! (Legend may claim this to be true but I think it was her last laugh!!)
Perched on the hillside, the views from Pissouri village and its surroundings are spectacular.
Pissouri has a quaint, unique character bestowed by winding cobbled streets lined with charming rustic houses. The Cypriot character has certainly been retained and is what attracts so many visitors.
There is an exceptional choice of restaurants and taverns offering a wide range of cuisine Pissouri really does have it all from ice creams palours to exquisite fine dining there are restaurants for all occasions!
During the summer there is a traditional Cyprus night in the lovely pedestrianised village square, with dancing and music. It is hosted by the 3 restaurants and their collaboration creates an incredible party atmosphere that is so infectious you can't help but be drawn into the merriment! There is much Greek Dancing and entertaining whilst you dine underneath the stars and later a DJ with a live band take the evening into the early hours! Although the idea is perhaps to provide entertainment for Pissouri's visitors, it is also true that a significant number of those present every week are the villagers themselves! Here you can truly enjoy an authentic Cyprus evening but as you can imagine the evenings are so popular that early booking is essential!!
The ancient Hellenistic Kourion Theatre which sits on the top of a hill overlooks the glistening Mediterranean Sea, was constructed probably around the late 2nd century A.D.
The magnificent presence of this ancient relic resonates of times gone by and over the years it's stage featured raging gladiators as well as plays and operas.
The view from Kourion Ampitheatre is nothing short of spectacular and at its feet you will find the ever popular Kourion Beach. (sometimes spelled Curium). Kourion is a sandy blue flag beach with a gentle shoreline. It can however be a little windier here and as there are no wave breaks it is a great place for wind surfing, kite boarding and even hand gliding.
There are 3 restaurants on the beach and I have to be extremely bias on this occasion and show my loyalty to Chris's Blue Bar and Restaurant, which is the middle one. This Beach restaurant has recently been refurbished and offers sun loungers, fantastic shower and changing facilities. The restaurant has a varied menu but genuinely it would be a shame to miss the delicious fresh fish on offer. Choose your own fish from the chilled displays or order a great bottle of wine and let wave upon wave of Fish Meze come to you. Believe me when I say that you will not need to eat again that day!
Kourion is a great day out and you will find more locals than tourists on the beach. As Kourion is close to Fasouri Water Park, it can also be a civilised way to end a day of water mayhem!
North East of Coral Bay
Troodos and Mountain Villages
Cyprus is one of the few places where you are able to walk on sun-kissed beaches in the morning and ski on snow-capped mountains in the afternoon. In the summer months, Troodos is a cool, welcomed retreat from the coastal heat and there are many activities to pursue from woodland pony rides to cycling and walks on dappled pathways leading to hidden waterfalls.
Winter time offers a magical wonderland where you can sip delicious hot chocolate made on location in Platres, have skiing or snowboarding lessons, hire sledges for some real family fun or simply build a snowmen! Wintertime in Troodos is a main attraction for tourists and locals alike and the village square is bustling with people purchasing hot honey nuts and sampling Commandaria wine.

We've just got back from a week at Villa Kara and I can't rate it highly enough. The villa was clean and well laid out, the location was quiet but just a short walk from the beach and a slig… More

"Home from home"
The perfect villa for a one or two child couple, great location away from the centre of coral bay resort but a very short walk to the beach. The villa has everything you would want or need including a large dvd collection for the kids. Great bbq and pool table on the veranda, there is even a tree house too. There is a small pool to cool down in and for the kids to splash around in. This is the second year we have rented the villa and cannot imagine looking for anywhere else to rent, we all love stopping there and it really does feel like home from home.
If you are looking for a 2 bed villa in the paphos area look no further you will not be disapointed.
