About Paphos in Cyprus

From its picturesque harbour and breath-taking historical sights to its wonderfully tranquil atmosphere, Paphos is a beautiful place filled with history. Add 300 days a year of sunshine to the equation and Paphos is a great holiday destination all year-round. The Paphos coastline is a picturesque mix - just a short bus ride from Paphos' town centre, Coral Bay presents a cluster of rich, sandy bays, rocky coves and a quaint fishing harbour lined with traditional open-air restaurants serving freshly caught seafood. 

Further inland,Cyprus has lots to offer including a trip to Tomb of Kings or Byzantine Castle. Alternatively, discover fun for all the family at the Aphrodite Waterpark or Paphos Aquarium. For a spot of shopping on your Paphos holiday, why not visit the Old Town stern with cobbled streets and stunning architecture.

While it isn't a ‘full on’ party town Paphos has a vibrant nightlife. The aptly named Bar Street boasts a wide choice of pubs, cocktail bars, karaoke venues, and even a couple of discos. After a day of exploring the winding streets, enjoy one of its many traditional and modern productions that are staged throughout the year. 

Holidays in Paphos are packaged with ocean sports including jet skiing, scuba diving, paddle boarding, kayaking as well as relaxing boat trips. Inland, explore hills, villages and forests on bike, horse back or on foot.

Diving in Paphos is Perfect for Learn To Dive Perfect for Qualified diver with daily dives

With water temperatures remaining pleasantly above 25C well into October, Cyprus has a longer diving season than most of its competitors nearby. The clarity of the sea is also excellent with visibility of more than 30 metres not uncommon. Seas are usually calm, meaning there is rarely any current to contend with, and making the diving benign and manageable for people of all abilities.

Although there is not the prolific marine life more common with places like the Red Sea and The Maldive, Cyprus does offer some very enjoyable diving. There are stunning underwater caves with octopus, lobster and cuttlefish. There are also numerous dive sites with colourful reefs and sea life, especially around Paphos

Much of the diving around Cyprus is accessible from the shore. For divers with families, who perhaps only want to spend a couple of hours a day away from their partners and children, this can be a real advantage.

The one dive site worth seeing above all others is the RS Zenobia, known to locals affectionately as The Zen, which lies just ten minutes outside of Larnaca harbour.
