About the location
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 - endangered turtles nest on the beach here. 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.
