Hints and tips for your Paphos holiday


Eating out in Paphos -– cheap, expensive and everything in between

The cuisine style of Cyprus looks to Greece for its inspiration and therefore the meals can be large and long... Pace yourself and restrict your eating between meals so you've plenty of room for this seafood and spice based cuisine. There's plenty of olives and tapenades and of course taramasalata and tzatziki is ubiquitous. Calamari is a local specialty and fresh seafood is everywhere.


The budget options -– The Last Castle is a pretty restaurant with awe-inspiring views over Lara Bay and is well regarded for it's great BBQ lunches (we dare you to resist the delicate waft of sizzling octopus!) and fabulous local salads.

Mid price options -– Mbania right on the sea front in Paphos is a wonderful introduction to the fresh seafoods of Cyprus. Look for the restaurant painted white and looking rather similar to a boat with portholes. If you've spent the morning sightseeing, stop at Melania on Tombs of the Kings Road for a slow-paced meal.

Splurge – As you head through Paphos towards Coral Bay look out for Sienna - as romantic a spot as you'll find with a back terrace that overlooks the bay. The meals are exquisitely prepared and it's a fine dining experience.


Things not to miss

Paphos – a beautiful location

One of the most historic spots in the Med, Cyprus dates back to legendary times - when Icarus flew too close to the sun, Aphrodite was born and myths created. On a more prosaic level, the archaeological sites in Cyprus, and many close to Paphos, are well worth a visit, simply to see the cradle of Mediterranean civilisation. Book your flights to Paphos now and enjoy the friendly Cypriot hospitality and the many historic sites.

Kato Paphos Archaeological Park – incredibly many of the more striking discoveries in this ancient site were made only recently. The mosaics are an extraordinarily special sight and there's plenty of them to see. You'll see the ancient remnants of a very old city and the little showcase museum is well put together.

Ayios Neophytos Monastery -– the beautiful stonework inside this monastery is a tribute to the original builders. It's a short bus ride up from the city so do make the effort because in the heat of summer the cool breeze in the valley will be most welcome. Explore the little caves and just wander the site.

The Port Fort -– the square sandstone block that stands guard over the harbour was built by the Ottoman's in the mid 1500s and is the remains of a much larger structure. You can climb up to the ramparts and stare out to sea - and use your imagination to ponder on how grand the original structure must have been.
