The western half of Cyprus is generally regarded to be the more grown up and sophisticated sister of the party girl out in the east...
The area boasts fascinating architecture, great golf courses, a friendly atmosphere, and miles of beaches, the glittering Mediterranean, and some of the best accommodation in Cyprus.
The legend of Aphrodite abounds on this island, and around Paphos in particular, where the goddess is reputed to have risen from the seas. You can visit Aphrodite's Rock - also called Petra Tou Romiou - and see for yourself why she ventured above the water here.
Paphos, also known as Pafos, is an excellent base for holidaymakers. The yacht-speckled harbour sits at the foot of magnificent Paphos Castle, and plenty of shops line the streets high above the bobbing boats. Restaurants, bars and clubs are centred on the area known as Kato Paphos, in the lower part of town.
The town is just 15 minutes from Paphos Airport (PFO), so it's a quick and easy transfer once you land. The airport also serves neighbouring resorts such as Agios Georgios, Latchi, Pomos, Neo Chorio, Miliou, Limassol and Amathus Bay.
Paphos holidays mean days spent lazing on the beach, with the soft sands of Coral Bay forming the main base for your seaside adventures.
Holidaymakers will find a very good standard of self-catering, villa and high-end hotel accommodation in Paphos. Many hotels offer extensive spa treatments and sports activities on land, as well as a huge range of watersports.
