Luxury Paphos Holidays

Mythical Mediterranean town

Paphos

Pretty Paphos is a unique Cypriot town, balancing a picture-perfect coastal setting with an incredible collection of historic remains. Set beside the water, Paphos is classically Mediterranean. There are sand-and-shingle beaches and a lovely harbour filled with bars and restaurants; a real nightlife hotspot after dark. A smart, café-lined promenade sweeps along behind. If you're interested in wildlife, head to nearby Lara Bay, where endangered turtles nest. Further inland, you’ve got ancient Paphos. The archaeological park encompasses the 4th-century old town, with its intricate mosaics and frescoes, plus the 1,000-year-old Tombs of the Kings, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Pack some comfy shoes – there’s a lot to see here.

Paphos has a beautiful harbour. I'd recommend visiting in the evening - it's cooler and the sunsets from here are stunning.

If you're after culture, Paphos is for you. The Tombs of the Kings are very interesting, as are the mosaics in the harbour area.

Hire a car for a day or two to explore some more of Cyprus. Head along the coast to Limassol or go up into the Troodos Mountains.

When to go

Cyprus has Greek island-style summers that warm up quickly, with temperatures sticking in the low 20s around April and May. In the middle of summer, highs are well into the 30s, and you can still get away with great beach weather (in the slightly more comfortable 20s) around September and October. Cyprus doesn’t get particularly cold; things hover in the late teens throughout winter, with the odd rain shower.

Visa Information

Visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Cyprus.

Tipping

Most restaurants and hotel bills will include a 10% tip, so you don’t have to tip wait staff or bar staff. Even still, extra tips are always appreciated, especially if you received good service. Taxi drivers appreciate a tip; aim for about 10% of the fare.

Introduction to languages

The official languages of Cyprus are Turkish and Greek. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
