Paphos Region

Loading

The west coast of Cyprus

The Paphos region of Cyprus’ west coast runs from Polis, on the island’s north-western tip, down to the city of Limassol, in the south. Most people come here for the beaches, and once you see them you’ll understand why. Blue Flag sands are flanked by limestone cliffs and accessorised by tilting palm trees.

A tale of 2 cities

The lively holiday resorts of Paphos and Limassol receive the lion’s share of the visitors. At first glance, you’ll notice karaoke bars, Irish pubs, and restaurants that serve Sunday roast and mousakka in equal portions. But look a bit closer and you’ll see the Cypriot charm that hasn’t been lost with the arrival of the tourists. The old part of Paphos showcases yesteryear Greece with its temples, churches and forts, while Limassol has an atmospheric old town.

Traditional Cyprus

Away from the coast, the Paphos region showcases a sleepy Mediterranean existence. Peaceful village squares dominate tiny villages like Pomos and Latchi, and the countryside is characterised by pine-covered hills and olive groves that stretch out for miles.

Paphos

According to myth, when Aphrodite rose from the sea she landed at Paphos. Fast-forward a few thousand years, and the old town is straight-up traditional Cyprus, with cobbled streets and shaded pavement cafés. Downhill, meanwhile, there’s a modern harbour packed with bars and restaurants. But the spirit of Aphrodite lives on in the age-old temples and crumbling ruins that are still here to explore.

Limassol

Limassol, a busy port on the south coast of Cyprus, isn’t just the island’s biggest resort, it’s one of the best, too. It can easily match the capital, Nicosia, for cosmopolitan buzz. It can keep the pace with Ayia Napa in the nightlife stakes. And the beach life is on a par with any of the island’s top sandy stretches.

Amathus Bay

Amathus Bay sits quietly on the south coast of Cyprus. Ruins near the village are all that remains of its status as an ancient royal city, said to have been home to the children of the god Heracles. These days, its whitewashed cottages and small portfolio of restaurants attract holidaymakers who want to get away from it all – with the option of a 10-minute drive to lively Limassol.

Aphrodite Hills

Aphrodite Hills is a luxury resort between Paphos and Limassol in Cyprus. You couldn’t really ask for a better setting – it sits on either side of the Randi Gorge overlooking the spot where Aphrodite is said to have risen from the sea. It’s a peaceful, away-from-it-all place with its own 18-hole golf course and a traditional-style village square filled with restaurants.

Coral Bay

Coral Bay is a lively seaside town on Cyprus’ west coast, nestled among banana plantations and vineyards. A long main strip runs through the town centre and along the waterside, offering up rustic tavernas and a handful of cheery cocktail bars. And when it comes to length, the sandy beach measures up pretty well, too.

Miliou

Miliou is a humble little hamlet hidden away among pine trees, vineyards and lemon groves in Cyprus. The rural village is all about stripped-back simplicity, so it’s just you, the locals and one rather popular coffee-shop-cum-restaurant. You’re not cut off here, though. There’s more at nearby Polis and Latchi, and Paphos itself is only 35 minutes’ drive away.
