Nesting on the south – western coast of the island, Paphos is probably the most scenic town in Cyprus combining mountain and sea. It is according to the legend the birthplace of the Greek Goddess of Love and Beauty, Aphodite.
It is known for its rich cultural heritage, scattered with countless places of historical and archaeological monuments, the deciding factor for listing it in the cultural treasures of the World Heritage, by Unesco and in 2017 will be Capital of Culture.
Paphos offers countless sandy beaches and rocky caves, with Coral Bay being the most popular beach, very close to the beautiful Akamas Peninsula. Akamas is a unique area, relatively large and unspoilt with remarkably diverse features in vegetation, wildlife, geology, beautiful landscapes and coasts.
Kato Paphos, the lower part of the town, by the sea, is built around the harbour and medieval castle and contains most of the luxury hotels and entertainment infrastructure of the city.
