Location description from owner
The Paphos District
UNESCO-listed Paphos, Cyprus’ Roman capital is a city on the southwest coast of Cyprus and is positively teaming with history and legend.
Paphos is an area with more than 50 km of coast, total of 27 beaches in the district open to the public, and more than 12 blue flag awarded beaches, making, Paphos a perfect place for swimming, diving or snorkeling all year round. Blue Flag is a prestigious, international award scheme which acts as a guarantee to tourists that a beach or marina they are visiting is one of the best in the world.
Petra Tou Romiou or Aphrodite's Rock is not something to be missed. Said to be the birthplace of Aphrodite, Goddess of love, it is believed that she emerged from the sea at this bay. Aphrodite herself chose the famous rock to begin her life as a human. It is said that Aphrodite first travelled to the island of Cythera, but she found it too small and therefore reached Paphos and settled here. The name Petra Tou Romiou which means 'Rock of the Greek', comes from the story of the Byzantine frontier guard who used to throw these 'petras' in the sea to destroy Arab ships during a raid by the Saracens on Cyprus.
The Temple of Aphrodite was officially established by its cult with the construction of a hilltop temple on the important pilgrimage site of Palea Paphos. Although, it is said that the temple was erected in 1500 BC, the idols and coins related to Aphrodite found here date back to 3800 BC. It stood on a knoll about 2 kilometres inland overlooking the sea. Soon, the town of Palea Paphos started forming around the temple.
Baths Of Aphrodite
The picturesque fishing village of Latchi is the famous mythological site 'Baths of Aphrodite'. It is believed that on this romantic site, Aphrodite used to take her baths in the natural pool grotto. Legend has it this is where Aphrodite met her lover, the handsome Adonis, when he stopped at the pool for a drink. There are many myths about the pools and one of them says that bathing in the pool would bestow fertility. However, nowadays nobody is allowed to enter the pools. The site can be reached by the nature trails of Akamas.
The history behind Adonis Baths relates to the love story of Aphrodite and Adonis. Both 'Aphrodite' the Goddess of Love and 'Persephone' the Goddess of Underworld loved Adonis. This led to a fight between Aphrodite and Persephone and the court ruled that Adonis should spend one third of the year with Aphrodite, one third with Persephone and the remaining by himself. But Adonis cheated on Persephone by spending the one-third time reserved for him with Aphrodite. Seething with anger, Persephone got him killed by a wild boar.
The Adonis Baths are located close to Coral Bay and can be accessed from Kili village or Mavrokolymbos Dam. According to Greek mythology, the couple spent much of their time together at the baths and it was here many of their children were born. Swimming in the baths located below the waterfall is supposed to preserve women's youth and men’s strength.The Mosaics of Paphos
Situated near the Paphos harbour are some superbly preserved mosaic remains dating back to third to fifth century A.D. These mosaic floors seen in the Villa of Dionysos, Orpheus and Aion, and the Villa of Theseus depict compositions from Greek mythology. A farmer accidentally discovered these mosaics while he was ploughing his field. They are made from small cubes of marble and stone called tesserae. Additionally, glass paste was used to develop the range of colours. The wide variety of these beautiful designs can be seen in the Villa of Dionysos in rich and colourful detail.
The Castle of Paphos
This is one of the most famous landmarks of the City.
A number of archaeologists have taken an interest in excavating and investigating the castle as it dates back to the Roman era.
These days, it serves as a background for the annual open-air Paphos cultural festival, which takes place in September.
Although there aren’t many windows in the castle the view from the top is breath-taking.
Boat trips from Paphos Harbour
There are several bot trips from Paphos Harbour including every Friday evening the Wave Dancer invites you to join them on board for a three-course buffet dinner as you cruise the Paphos coast and enjoy the spectacular firework display illuminating the night sky in the most beautiful colours. The glamorous musical dance show, live performer, and the firework displays will guarantee you a night to remember. The 400 square metre aft deck makes a great viewing platform and features a fully-equipped bar so you can soak up the scenery while sipping on cocktail.
If being busy doing nothing is your holiday mantra, you'll love this laid back day at sea on board a luxury catamaran. Relax on the rigging nets as you glide through the crystal clear waters. Swim in the warm waters of the Mediterranean sea once we drop anchor. Or if you’re feeling the heat, chill out in the shade of the cool lounge area. A relaxed day topping up the tan and enjoying the views of the coastline - this is as good as it gets.
Tombs of the Kings
Situated about two kilometres north-west of Paphos harbour, are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is a large necropolis comprising of underground tombs, many of which are the resting place of 100 Ptolemaic elite who died in Paphos between 3 B.C. and 3 A.D. The name is suggestive of the splendour of the tombs and no actual kings are buried here. Found near Coral Bay, the structure consists of solid rock formations featuring Doric pillars and walls decorated with frescoes. Ongoing archaeological excavations have unearthed the Church of Paleoekklisia, which depict Byzantine frescoes.
Acropolis & Odeon
The Odeon, which is one of the most important archaeological sites in Cyprus was built in the second century and shaped entirely from perfectly hewn limestone rocks. To the south of the Odeon are the remains of the Roman temple of Asclepius, God of Medicine and to the north are remains of ancient town walls. Next to the Odeon and near to the New Paphos Lighthouse is a rocky mound which is said to have been the Acropolis of the town.
Odeon is one of the best amphitheatres to stage live musical and theatrical performances as well as being a tourist attraction. The Cypriot Department of Antiquities has partly restored the Odeon with 12 rows of seats, available for live events. Each year, the Paphos Choir festival and Rhythms of Light festival injects life into the Paphos Odeon with some of the best choirs and spectacular dance performances.
Experience the mysterious underwater world at the Paphos aquarium situated just next to the Theoskepasti church. The place is perfect for a family day out where you can explore 72 large environment friendly tanks full of fish, and one of them is reserved just for the crocodiles. You can get to see various types of fresh water and seawater fish, both common and rare varieties. With specially designed lighting, you can view the fascinating markings and gorgeous colours of the diverse fish.
Situated in the south west of Cyprus, Coral Bay is a very popular resort enjoying a very sunny climate with 11.5 hours of bright sunshine per day over the six summer months,with two Blue Flag beaches and a wide variety of attractions and amenities.
Coral Bay has something to offer for everyone whether you choose to relax, explore, sight see, play golf or take part in the more adventurous activities on offer:
Coral Bay’s long sandy beach is dotted with sun loungers and umbrellas, but its real draw is the huge choice of water sports. There’s a centre on the sand that offers banana boats, pedalos, jet-skis and water-skiing. You’ve also got a diving school here which has trips for qualified and novice divers.
There is an abundance of restaurants, shops and bars in Coral Bay. Enjoy traditional Cypriot cuisine (including the famous meze) as well as Chinese, Mexican, Italian etc.
Everything is at hand, two well stocked supermarkets on the main strip and another within 10 minutes’ walk (if you ask for delivery at the till, this supermarket will give you a lift home as well!) offer many English as well as local products.
For the more adventurous quad bikes and buggies can be hired from the main strip and there is also Go Carting nearby.
Coral Bay is the perfect place to relax and the ideal starting point to explore this beautiful island. Car hire can easily be arranged, most signs are in English and Greek and driving is on the left.
An excellent bus service runs through Coral Bay that will take you to many places in the area including the Aphrodite Waterpark, Market, Paphos Harbour etc, a day ticket is available that offers a 'hop on hop off' service .
Ithaki Amusement Park
Just off the main strip of Coral Bay you will find Ithaki Amusement Park and Mini Golf. Parents can have a drink from the bar while the children enjoy the amusements including mini golf, air hockey and karaoke.
There are a wide variety of excursions on offer including to the capital Nicosia, Limassol, Famagusta etc.
Famagusta, which had once been a glamorous resort and a favourite of stars such as Burton, Taylor and Bardot became a ghost town during the Turkish invasion in 1974.Inhabitants, fled their homes with only the clothes on their backs. Everything has been frozen in time here, washing still hangs on the line, homes still have closets full of clothes, cabinets full of dishes, and there is even a car dealership still stocked with ‘brand new’ 1974 model-year cars.
Paphos Zoo is located a few minute’s ride from Coral Bay and is home for many species of animals including Siberian tigers, white lions, giraffes, monkeys (macaques, tamaris, mandrills, lemurs and more), meerkats, raccoons, many snakes and lizards, crocodiles and tortoises. Birds are also very important for Paphos Zoo (there are more than 700 birds at the zoo), as it was originally only a private collection of birds. The species include: parrots, flamingos, penguins, cranes, many birds of prey, and more, there is also a petting zoo for children. Facilities at the Zoo include the Natural History Museum, an amphitheatre (with daily parrot and owl acrobatic shows), a restaurant, a souvenir shop, a snack bar, an art gallery, the Traditional House (a traditional Cypriot dwelling) and an animal nursery and clinic

“Great villa - great location”
This was our third stay at Marina Villa, and we will be back again soon. The villa is nicely furnished and has everything you need, and the pool and patio areas provide sun (and welcome shade) all day long. The location is only 50m from the restaurants and bars, yet quiet and very private. Dealing with Chris and June is a pleasure, easy and straightforward. Would recommend for all and will be going back in the future.
Thank you very much Graham for the great review. It's nice to know all the extras are appreciated. We're really pleased you had a great time. Best regards, Chris & June
We have had villa holidays in Coral Bay before but this was by far the best. The accommodation is superb in every way. Immaculately kept, well equipped with a fantastic pool area which is bathed in sunshine from dawn to dusk but also with ample shade should you wish it. Carrie and Rod are on the end of the phone should there have been any problems. In a quiet location but close to the many bars and restaurants, we especially liked Leftankos and Kikko's Bar, but it is hard to choose between them as they are all good. We have already booked the villa again for next year so what more is there to say! A lovely villa and a lovely holiday.
“Marina Villa - Complete Luxury”
After searching through numerous Villa's we came across Marina Villa in Coral Bay and after reading all of the exceptional comments we decided to book. Nothing could have been easier. Chris and June were superb and gave us help and advice on flights, best places to eat and even organised the taxi from the airport. From the moment we pulled up outside we knew we were in for a great holiday. The villa stands in a prominent position and is only yards from the main restaurants and bars, don't take that as a negative as there was absolutely no noise, just really well located for everything. Chris and June have tried to think of everything and you really want for nothing once you step inside. Carrie and Rod from the Property Maintenance Company were on hand all the time for help and advise should you need it. There is a great supermarket just 5 mins up the road "Philipos" once you have done your shopping you simply ask them to give you a lift home which is foc. There are some fantastic restaurants, Corello and Coral King were two of our favourites as was the Italian's which is literally on the corner of the road as you walk out of the Villa On arrival the welcome pack is everything you need and was very much appreciated. Local buses are great, the 615 runs every 10 mins and it is only 1.50 where ever you want to go. Its worth a trip to Paphos Harbour just to chill in the harbour bars and watch the world go by. Could go on for ever it was so good. Thanks again, it is fair to say the Morallee family will definitely be returning to Marina Villa
Had a fantastic holiday and this property is more than we could have asked for. Comfortable with all we needed and very clean. Fab location and would recommend car hire firm at bottom of the street. Pool was cleaned twice in 1 week. The extras like the water cooler in the kitchen an added bonus. Faultless, only beware of the grumpy neighbour when we lit the barbecue. Hopefully he was just on holiday too so you won't meet him. All in all perfect.
Many thanks for your kind comments, we are pleased you all enjoyed your stay.The grumpy man must have been a holiday maker as we know our neighbours well and no one has ever made any complaints.Almost every villa is expected to have a BBQ, eating al-fresco is a way of life in the sun.
“Fantastic relaxing family get together!!”
We've recently been to Coral Bay and stayed in the fantastic Marina Villa. The villa is gorgeous! I feel like we have been totally spoilt now. Staying in the villa was far more relaxing than staying in a hotel. The accommodation was extremely clean and spacious. The pool is great too!! The owners have thought of every eventuality. The villa is situated within a short walking distant of some excellent bars, restaurants and café's. Hopefully we will all be back next year.
“Excellent villa in an ideal location”
We have just returned from Marina Villa and once again can't recommend it highly enough. We stayed here a couple of times previously and if anything the villa gets better with every stay. The villa as always, was clean and tidy upon arrival and the owners really do try to cover every eventuality with their help both prior to arrival and whilst at the villa. The owners have certainly kept on-top of the upkeep of the villa and have introduced some new additions since our last stay. The addition of the covered area by the BBQ really helps you to enjoy your food whilst staying out of the sun. The garden has also matured nicely which gives to a more homely feel whilst helping with privacy. The private pool as always is a god send with all the outdoor furniture in good condition. The location of the villa is still second to none, being only a five minute stroll to the main resort but also being far enough away that the location is peaceful. We will definitely be booking again in the future but wont be leaving it as long this time as no where we go matches up to the high standards set by Marina Villa.
