TUI BLUE Pioneer Beach

Romance and relaxation ooze from every corner of this luxury destination. The adults-focused TUI BLUE Pioneer Beach sits right on the beach, and with your own private cabana, you can simply relax under the shaded canopy and enjoy the sea view. Cool down in the freshwater swimming pool and chill the Jacuzzi, staring up into the softly-swaying palm trees surrounding you. Enjoy a game of bowls on the green, or hit a few aces on the floodlit tennis court. And after all that, treat yourself to a couples massage at the spa, and top off with a candlelit dinner at your pick of the hotel’s restaurants. Perfect.

Overview of Paphos

Pathos, with its outstanding landscape, is reputed to be the birth place of ancient Greek goddess, Aphrodite. Indeed, her legend is immortalised in its many ruins, tombs, and fortresses. You’ll be in the midst of this old-world charm while wandering around quaint, cobbled streets, colourful mosaics and fascinating museums. Combine this with the stunning beaches and a modern harbour, full of welcoming bars and restaurants, and you’ve got all the makings of a truly memorable holiday to Cyprus.

Things to do in Paphos

If you want to head out and about, there’s plenty to explore. The shops, tavernas and bars of Paphos are just ten minutes’ walk from the TUI BLUE Pioneer Beach. Close by is the legendary Kato Paphos Archaeological Park with temples dating back to prehistoric times, impressive Roman architecture, and stunningly-preserved mosaic floors. While you’re here, discover Unesco’s Tomb of the Kings, Egyptian catacombs carved out of solid rock in 4th-century BC. If you can’t resist sweeping views of the sea, visit the Temple of Aphrodite in nearby village Kouklia, and watch the sunset over Aphrodite’s Rock, her fabled ocean birthplace. For a thoroughly relaxing holiday, the TUI BLUE Pioneer Beach and its ideal location just a short way from all the action of Pathos makes this an excellent choice for your holiday in Cyprus.

Resort Summary

Not many places could define Cyprus and its long history quite as well as Paphos, which is located on the southwest coast of the island.

A rich thread of history is woven into every part of Paphos, and it shows in the architecture and outlook of the city’s people. It’s said that the Greek goddess of love and beauty, Aphrodite, once called the city home. Her mythic touch can also be felt in nearby sites like Amathus Bay, where a temple still stands in her honour.

There are places all around that demonstrate why the city’s been chosen as European Capital of Culture 2017. Such as Paphos Castle and the Randi Gorge in Aphrodite Hills, where Aphrodite is said to have risen from the sea. These landmarks of a bygone era have to be seen to be believed.
