You’ll likely be flying into Paphos International Airport (PFO) instead of the largest airport in Cyprus, which is in Larnaca.
The airport is just a 20-minute drive from central Paphos.
Hotel shuttle services, private airport shuttles and taxis are the most popular ways to travel from the airport to hotels. Car hire is another great option (see more on that below).
Regular intercity buses are speedy and reasonably regular and ticket prices are cheap.
It's easy enough to navigate Paphos itself on foot, as both the new and old towns are of a manageable size. Many people take the bus from the old harbour town up the hill, as it's quite a climb.
Buses also connect Paphos to the nearby town of Polis, Coral Bay resort and several picturesque villages.
Buses between smaller towns can be slower and less frequent. Villages in the island’s interior and lesser-known beaches can be difficult to reach by public transport. This is when having your own wheels comes in handy.
If all else fails, you can hire a taxi. There's an initial charge of about €3 or €4, then roughly 80 cents per kilometre. Taxis are usually white with a sign on the roof. Check that the meter is on when you get in.
You'll see plenty of quad bikes on the road, a particular favourite with visitors, though in the height of summer you may want to stick to a car with air conditioning.
Hire a car and travel where you want, when you want. Discover your options on our Paphos car hire page.
