Cyprus’ excellent climate, beautiful beaches, warm, clear sea and child friendly and welcoming people are some of the reasons for visiting this most easterly island in the Mediterranean. However Cyprus also has numerous cultural and historical sites and beautiful inland country for walking, cycling and exploring, much of which is easily reached by car from Aphrodite Hills and which make it the perfect holiday destination for everyone. Roads are generally well maintained with signs in both Greek and English, car rental rates are reasonable and driving is on the left as in the UK.
The historic town of Paphos is only 20 minutes drive to the west of Aphrodite Hills. There is also a local bus from the resort to Paphos Harbour. There are 7 daily trips to and from Paphos in the summer months. The trip takes approximately 45 minutes and the cost for a single trip is currently €1.00.
Bars and restaurants line the pretty harbour in Paphos where a medieval fort hosts cultural and musical events in summer. The town was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1980 and the extensive archaeological site behind the port has wonderfully preserved Roman mosaics and a Lusigian fortress. At The Tomb of the Kings nearby are rock catacombs from the 4th Century BC. As well as offering a wealth of cultural experiences Paphos has the largest Water Park in Cyprus and a number of boat trips operate from the port. There is a lively night life with many bars and clubs situated around the town.

North of Paphos is the wild Akamas peninsula, popular for walking and Lara Bay where green turtles nest. Jeep Safaris are the best way to see this area. The fishing villages of Lachi and Polis have pretty seafront tavernas and are also worth a visit.
Just a few hundred metres east of Aphrodite Hills is Aphrodite’s Rock a photogenic spot where the goddess herself is said to have emerged from the waves. Pissourri, with its large supermarket, is about 15 minutes further west on the coast road. Its pretty hilltop village has several excellent restaurants and tavernas and numerous facilities for watersports are available on the beach below. The ruins of Kourion lie a short distance further east. Turning inland is the village of Anogyra with Oleastro, an attraction giving an insight into olive growing and the manufacture of olive oil and other local products. There are a number of wineries to visit on the road north towards and beyond the village of Omodos and into the spectacular Troodos mountain area which is perfect for walking and cycling and where skiing is possible in the early part of the year.
There are many other fascinating and entertaining places to visit within easy reach of Aphrodite Hills which, combined with Cyprus’ excellent weather and the resort’s own first class facilities, make it the perfect year round holiday destination.
