A glimpse into the ancient world
There are constant reminders of the past in Cyprus’ Paphos region. So, it goes without saying, your holiday wouldn’t be complete without exploring its long-standing history. With UNESCO World Heritage sites, archaeological parks and grand castles all waiting for your arrival, this region is a must visit destination for those history buffs out there.
Most of the regions attractions are located in and around Paphos and Limassol. But one sight you can’t miss out on is The Tomb of the Kings. Situated close to Paphos’ harbour, this unforgettable UNESCO World Heritage Site is now one of Cyprus’ top attractions with its maze of underground tombs, dating back thousands of years.
Nights to remember
If you live for your evenings then Paphos city should definitely be your top pick. It all goes on here – beach clubs, dance spots, chilled cafes and plush lounges offer the perfect after-dark mix. Plus, this upbeat resort also has a whole street and harbour dedicated to its night scene.
If you’re looking to stay closer to your hotel on an All Inclusive Cyprus holiday, the resort of Limassol also has a great selection of bars, clubs and cafes, but when compared to Paphos city, this hotspot is more about casual clubs and laid-back cocktail bars. Coral Bay and Latchi, on the other hand, are great for a few quiet drinks, and for that reason, hotels here often put on evening entertainment.
A region of unspoilt beauty
With little scenic villages and rugged mountains, this region is also home to some of the most beautiful coastal scenery in Cyprus. In the north of the region you’ll find Cyprus’ largest mountain range, the stunning Troodos Mountains.
Nestled beyond thick forests and picturesque valleys these captivating peaks offer everything from, hiking, cycling, birdwatching and even skiing in the winter months – despite the sunshine. While, in the west of the region you’ll come across Akamas area, and in particular its unspoilt beaches. In fact, Akamas is the last large unspoiled coastal area in Cyprus and one of the few sea turtle nesting grounds in the whole of the Mediterranean.
