Offering beautiful beaches and a bigger-than-average bank of historical sights, holidays to the Paphos region have all the ingredients for a great break.
Framed by the Mediterranean Sea, Cyprus’ west coast run from Polis, on the island’s northernwestern tip, down to the pretty port city of Limassol. Follow this western stretch and you’ll tick off big-name sights like Aphrodite’s Rock, the ancient Tombs of the Kings and the mountain-top Kykkos Monastery along the way.
But sightseeing isn’t Cyprus’ main selling point. Its star cast are the beaches wrapped around its coastline. Resort-wise, Paphos is probably the most well-known name in these parts. It’s home to a handful of sand-and-pebble stretches and more watersports than you could feasibly fit into a week.
Coral Bay and Limassol
Next-door Coral Bay is on the quieter side – the shallow water here makes it a popular spot with families. And further south is Limassol, whose 16-kilometre coastline is divvied up into smaller beaches. Ladies Mile and Governor’s Beach are the names on everyone’s lips.
