Coral Bay Beach (5KM) Coral Bay Beach is one of the most popular beaches in Paphos. The ‘natural sand’ beach lays nestled between limestone cliffs on either side of its horseshoe-shaped coastline. The beach has Blue Flag status and lifeguards on duty during the summer months, ensuring it maintains high safety standards. The Blue Flag status makes this quiet beach a hotspot for a wide variety of water sports and activities such as diving, snorkelling, parasailing and offers wind and kite surfing during the winter months. However, if you’d rather trade the adrenalin filled water activities for relaxation the beach is a perfect spot for sunbathing and taking in the beauty of Paphos. There are also boat rides on offer, a beach bar, eateries, and much more.
Akamas National Park (5KM)
Akamas has a fascinating history of beauty. In Greek mythology, the lovers Aphrodite and Adonis first met here. There are some very interesting nature trails following the mythical route taken by the couple, one of which (a must see) is the Aphrodite Trail that leads to the spectacular Baths of Aphrodite. The Akamas has a wide variety of flora, including some species that are endemic to the Akamas and cannot be found anywhere else in the world. It is also home to a diverse range of monk seals, sea turtles, and at least 168 species of birds. The Lara Bay Beach protects eggs of the local endangered sea turtles and helps conserve the species.
You can also visit the crystal clear waters of the blue lagoon in a glass-bottomed boat or by renting quad bikes locally. Alternatively, a stroll through the remarkable Avakas Gorge nature trail is very popular with tourists.
The Sea Caves (2KM)
The Sea Caves are awe-inspiring both aesthetically and geologically, as these alluring hollows have taken thousands of years of erosion to develop into what we see today. The persistence of the ocean has done more than simply carve out caves; it's left a mark on the rocks and cliffs surrounding, creating stunning natural sculptures.
Resting on the rocks nearby you can view the hauntingly beautiful shipwreck of "EDRO III" an abandoned cargo ship which ran aground in 2011 and has been left as a tourist attraction since.
