Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean and is full of contrasts; from cool, pine-tree covered mountains to villages in rocky hills to modern beachside resorts with luxury hotels.
The weather is warm and sunny from May to the end of October, with peak temperatures in July and August, giving bountiful harvests in the orchards and magnificent crops in the vineyards, which produce many fine local wines across the island. Outside of these months the climate is still wonderfully mild and sunny with average temperatures never much below 60 degrees F.
There are many fascinating archaeological sites and antiquities, all evidence of occupation and colonisation over many centuries and a reminder of the island's strategic importance. Fortifications built by the Crusaders still stand, the medieval Fort at Paphos harbour today provides a stunning backdrop for outdoor evening concerts.
The majority of roads on Cyprus are modern, there is a developing motorway network, and access to all areas is relatively easy although enough mountain tracks are still available to host international motor-sport rallies!
Driving is on the left side of the road, as in the UK. Hiring a car is straightforward and affordable with petrol significantly cheaper than in the UK. The whole of the island is within easy reach.
Paphos Town comprises two areas; the ‘New Town’, Kato Paphos, encompassing the harbour, shops, restaurants and larger hotels, and the ‘Old Town’, Plano Paphos, where the main banking, business centres and markets are situated.
Restaurants are located all over the town with costs available to suit every pocket. The choice is enormous, from the traditional Meze to International, French, Italian, Chinese and Indian cuisine, to say nothing of ‘traditional’ British Fare.
The surrounding area of Greater Paphos extends for approximately 100 square miles along the West coast of Cyprus and includes the Akemas wildlife and conservation park, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Coral Bay, situated between Akemas and Paphos Town has some of the best beaches in the area.
An extensive variety of sporting activities can be enjoyed including cycling, scuba diving, fishing, tennis, horse riding, mountain biking, paragliding, swimming, walking, water skiing, wind-surfing, and nearby facilities include the Aphrodite Waterpark and a Go-karting stadium; all widely available at reasonable cost.
Golf, in particular, is being promoted in the region with three challenging, world-class, 18 hole championship courses now open. These include the Tsada Golf Club, 20 minutes from Paphos town, which plays to a par 72, the Secret Valley Golf Club, 18 kilometres east of Paphos and situated in a scenic valley with panoramic views, also playing to a par 72, and the Aphrodite Hills Golf Complex close to the main Limassol-Paphos highway that plays to a Par 71. All three courses measure over 6,000 metres.
