Aphrodite herself is said to have risen from the seas along the shores of Paphos. You can see why she picked the spot – turquoise waters lap against golden sands, with a backdrop of dazzling limestone cliffs. It really is a beautiful place to explore, so stay a while.
There are so many historical sites to tick off on a Paphos holiday, from the Tombs of the Kings to the Temple of Apollo over towards Limassol. In Amathus Bay, you’ll find what’s left of the royal city that was once home to the children of the mythical hero, Heracles. It’s a passport to the past.
If you’re looking for after-hours fun from a Cypriot stay, you’ll find it in the hip holiday resorts of Paphos and Limassol. Both come with harbourfronts brimming with bars, pubs and nightclubs, so your every whim will be catered for. This west coast really does have everything.
